February's Pictures

Take Me Round Dougga
Take Me Round Dougga (Nikon D5000)

Just back from a week in Tunisia. We started out by spoiling ourselves by going to Dougga, which was qute a drive from Hammamet but well worth it. It's a huge Roman settlement that set on the top of a hill and it is just massive. We must have walked around it fro about an hour or two and still we didn't see the whole thing. It's also amazing that they allow people just to roam around it with little of it out of bounds. Of course there is an entrance fee and just like everything in Tunisia, if you take your camera then that will cost you extra but hey it's brilliant and what with us going out of season, it was all deserted.

This is a pic of one of the guides with little to do as there was no-one there except for us and we had decided against a guide. At least here they as you if you want a guide, other places in Tunisia they just latch onto you and before you know it, from just a casual hello you end up having a guide who starts trying to steer you round, of course the catch with all of this is that they will want payment. One of these guys I caught early and paid him to go away 2 Dinar (or De Niros as my Daughter called them) wasn't such a high price to pay as it's only 84p. He seemed happy anyway, and I was happy for him to go away.

Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter (Canon PowerShot SX230 HS)

It's really a bit of a prescriptive description here. It really says what it does on the tin, but to be honest there were no pics from this year that seemed good enough even though there have been few outings this year and it's only just February. To be honest there's nothing been doing the last few weeks and I have been not that bothered to do anything either, perhaps that will change with a holiday on the horizon, however no up to date pics on that holiday what with the cost of roaming data and absolutely no WiFi in the hotel which is so last year it's unbelievable, how I shall survive I have no idea.

Anyway back to the pic (which I think should be my catch-phrase). This is of a Helter Skelter in Cheshire Oaks after going to the unimpressive Blue Planet Aquarium. It looked pretty and I'm not 100% sure I caught the prettiness with it's lights and the sun going down. But hey, what do I know about prettiness?
