The best picture of the day...

is the one where I have my camera.

This is what I thought as I lay on the physio table with 6 acupuncture needles sticking out of my calf and achilles.

I suppose the good sign is that I 'saw' the picture I wanted to take. Either using my kit lens (so I could get a nice perspective from my foot up the leg at 14mm) or with my fast 50mm f1.4 OM so I could get a nice DOF shot with maybe just 2 or 3 of the needles nice and sharp and the others out of focus.

I would have even liked to have played with the FL-36R snooted with a green gel to match the awful NHS fluorescent lighting shot from the side aiming just above the leg to see if I could lift the needles with some extra light.

But I didn't have my camera. And the physio has discharged me so I can't try next time.

That's why my mju1030SW is always with me...

Good that you have been discharged, some small consolation maybe.
