Did you know that f/16 was twice as wide as f/22? Likewise f/8 is twice as wide as f/11. The physical dial makes this unintuitive numbering clear, though. Distance between 5.6 and 4 is half as much as between 4 and 2.8.
The story goes, Lord Sandwich spent quite a bit of time at gambling tables playing games. He wasn't keen on leaving the table to eat. So he ordered to bring his meat between two breads so he can eat at his desk without having to put playing cards down. (A less popular version of the story says he invented sandwiches so he can keep eat at his work table.)
There have been times when I wanted to give up cycling altogether. Sitting inside the car is so comfortable, after all. But somehow I kept it going. One or two days every week, I was cycling to work.
A year later, I continue to cycle to work once or twice a week. It’ll be nice to cycle more often, but I am happy with how far I have come. When I arrived at work today after cycling for 10km, I wasn’t even thirsty. I didn’t want snacks, nor did I want coffee. I just put my bag down and started to work. I know things will improve further as time goes by, but I am satisfied with the progress so far.
