Bitter Blue

Earlier today, I came upon a notice warning that my hosting software is using an outdated, meaning unsupported, PHP version. Updating fatally crashed the site—so severely that I couldn’t access via tried-and-true Recovery Mode. Hours later, after reverting versions, the site came back to life. A single plugin presumably toasted everything. With the offender disabled, I will try the newer PHP once again.

But first, I had better fulfill my daily posting goal, which is how we come to the simple Featured Image, which I captured using Leica Q2 on May 13, 2022. I stopped for no particular reason before the flowers, along a sidewalk somewhere near where San Diego neighborhoods North Park and University Heights meet.

Vitals, aperture manually set: f/8, ISO 100, 1/10 sec, 28mm; 4:20 p.m. PDT; composed as shot. There’s tinge of motion blur from slight breeze, which ruined two photos taken wider. Okay, I gotta once more try going up in PHP without bringing down this website.
