Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer...Psalms 19: 14

My husband who is a fantastic scrabble player was watching a football game today, consequently I played a game by myself pretending to be two players..

I used two tile racks... one on my left and one on my right.. I ended up getting 411 points on my left side and 261 points on my right:) The left side definitely had better tiles all the way through while the right side fell behind:)

I very much love Scrabble ... for me it is a very calming game. Not everyone cares for it as it is slow going and takes a lot of thought.. I feel it is worth it to learn new words from the Scrabble dictionary that I had never heard of before.

I did a manual focus on my self portrait and this time it was a little easier as I pre-focused on the letters of the Scrabble game box to get a sharper focus before setting the self timer... there was not too much light in the room outside of the lamp behind me and a candle on the table.

Existing Light ...No flash
Focal Length 32 mm
F-Number F/ 10
Exposure time 1/10 sec.
ISO Speed - 800
Exposure program manual
Self-timer, camera on Tripod

    Donald, our driveway was snowed in and this was the ideal time to play a game
    of Scrabble...At my age it helps to exercise the brain and have fun at the same
    time. Thanks for the comment.

    Great indoor, low light and manual focus photo of you playing a solitaire game of Scrabble : ). I love to play Scrabble also, but have to play it against the computer as I do not have anyone that is interested in playing the game with me. I enjoy it with the computer : )
