Things you should never do
I’m putting off the “fit the porch back in place” activity. I’m still mulling over what’s changed since last it fitted.
As ever, when mulling, I start messing around. And today’s no-no is retro-fitting some lights. First I’ve added a small LED strip to the ceiling near the door of the porch, providing light to our seated gentleman and the boy with the broom.
But on the other side of the porch, not so good.
Sight-lines OK – but all is gloom
Making an LED less bright
The LED strip above James is a yellow one rather than bright white, but I’m finding it still too glaring.
It’s already stuck up there so now there’s a session of me on my knees looking upwards and painting the very small LED squares with white paint to reduce the whiteness of the light.
Still flare on the wall but much nicer shadows
I think I’ve come up with a way forward with the refitting of the porch, too. So a worthwhile displacement activity all round.
