Musical Keys and Imaging

An account of today at work and yesterday at Musical keys.


This post has two very disparate strands – yesterday’s Musical Keys event for Autistic People and tody at work.


While I have imaged a wide variety of stuff today at work I am going to concentrate on some commemorative coin lots that were of particular quality…


I did not have time to provide close-ups of all these coins…
…so I selected the one featuring a picture of Nelson (we are in Norfolk after all) for the treatmnent.


This lot featured an extra requirement.
Namely providing a shot focussing on the coin and info sheet into which it is set.


The last of the commemorative coins.


A large collection of themed stamp books.


Inidvidual mounted stamps
A close up of a single set
an even close up of two individual stamps.


Old maps…


… and an even older map to finish


The 12 years and older session of the Musical Keys workshop run as an NAS West Norfolk activity started at 4:45PM yesterday and ran until 6:15PM. I was there both as participant and as one 0f the two designated committee members to be present at the event (the other was group leader Karan whose younger son was participating). As usual with Musical Keys the main piece of equipment we were using was a miniature computer:


For the first part of the session we were playing computer drums:


After a mid-session break during which a birthday cake which Karan had very kindly made (gluten-free as her son has an adverse reaction to gluten) and which was absolutely delicious, we moved on to the second part of the session, which featured a system whereby lines had to be drawn across the screen so that balls would bounce of them to create sounds. For those of my generation it looks a bit like a very early BBC Micro game!

As anyone who knows what the weather was like in King’s Lynn yesterday early evening will be aware it was not suitable for photography on the way to the Scout Hut, where as so often with NAS West Norfolk events this took place, but I did get this picture on the way home…

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
