Whitehall

WhitehallSunday night’s ferry being cancelled, we made our way home on Monday’s morning boat. On the refit timetable, this service goes via Stronsay, which makes it a long trip. I was however excited at the prospect of something different to photograph…

…until I realised that I had left both cameras in Brunhilde on the car deck, which cannot be accessed during sailing.

I had with me my phone. The sea was still quite bouncy this morning and all that I managed to capture was a great deal of camera shake. I then found an app promising a feature that takes several shots and saves the least blurry image as the best option. Thinking that sounded good I tried it out by snapping the village of Whitehall as we berthed at Stronsay.

I’m very disappointed at all the blocky compression but there you are, it’s the only Blip that I have to offer for today. Take it or leave it.

I shall be ditching that app and looking at Mr L winsomely every time I utter the words “Birthday” and “iPhone”

As we only arrived home at 10:30 am, and I immediately rushed to get my bin bags out as I could see the collection vehicle already making its way down the road -[i] I completely lacked the presence of mind to fetch a camera and take the weekly shot.[/i]

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
