33|365 Aiming For The Chute (2/6/11)

Another day that Keith made oatmeal cookies.  This time with a different recipe and it was meant to be entertainment with our neighbor’s kids while their parents ran an errand. It was a great opportunity for me to practice action shots.

He measured the oats.  He lifted, with both hands, the full cup keeping his focus on the chute.  Then, with great concentration, he poured the oats into the mixer.

Of note today:  Superbowl 45 and I’m not a big football fan.  Still, it’s big news and I did watch a few commercials and the halftime.

In case you’re wondering why people stick their tongues out when they’re doing a difficult task:

  • Syndey Morning Herald December 2003 — When you are concentrating on something, you are using the hemisphere of the brain also used for processing motor input. It’s also noticeable that some people walk more slowly when they are thinking of something difficult. This is caused by interference from the two activities fighting for the same bit of brain to process them. By biting your lip or sticking your tongue out, you are suspending motor activity and keeping your head rigid, to minimise movement and hence interference.
