July's Pictures

Schumies Fans
Schumies Fans (Nikon D5000)

So the race. It was difficult to tell what exactly happened since again we were not anywhere near a tanoy and pit stops do sort of mess the race up as a spectator in the field but it loks like Hamilton lead more or less from the start ignoring its swaps. Still a pretty convincing victory, there was pressure from the Lotus team but he held well. Button's performance was les that convincing. Mind you I say that but IT have yet to see the results because we never got the viewing spot that we reconned yesterday. The problem yesterday was that we side-stepped security and entered the silver viewing area with pauper passes spied a great viewing place and left. So today we got a shock to find we were turned back at the gate. Still a good very hot day at the race and some time tonight I shall find out what actually went on.

Oh the picture of course. Lots of flag waving today so I thought I would snap this picture of some Schumacher fans, if I'm right then they won't be too dissapointed with a fifth I think he got. Like I say all will be revealed when I can get a wifi connection.

Right. After this bad weekend I am going to keep it short. It's not been bad... bad, just nothing has worked. The flight, the tablet and then the last entry failed and I had to have a go again. With any luck I shall have more pics to describe the full picture. For now... here's Kimi.

Norton Priory B Team
Norton Priory B Team (Nikon D5000)

Don't go it was a daft pun, really. Oh damn it you closed the browser down or navigated to youtube to watch a cat play the piano to calm yourself down. If you did come back then you have a treat in store... OK I lied it really doesn't get much better as I'm going to bore you for a little while on focal length.

Yes this is a bee at Norton Priory, a bit of Macro photography where the focal length is down to a couple of millimetres which means that as I stood there trying to take the picture, if I moved back more than a millimetre or so then it was all screwed. Luckily since I'm not really a robot I just moved back and forward until it looked right and snap. I have billions of these damn pictures now. All with bees doing something slightly flipping different.

Of course I came to the end of this run and thought... “The bees keep on flying away”, yeah I don't think it was thought on the scale of Plato or Archimedes or even Homer... unless it's Simpson of course. Well the thought was more than that it was more that I could try and take a shot of a bee in flight. By this time I could sort of guess when they were going to take flight so I waited.... and I waited... and I waited... and my Daughter asked when we were going. Hmmm interesting question. It's a garden with lots of space and other things at no point have I shackled anyone to my ankle, it's not like Sainsburys where if I spend more than a second selecting toilet paper then my Wife and Daughter are off in a flash meaning I then spend the next 10 minutes hunting for them, no it's a garden that to be honest I wouldn't object to walking around on my own and occasionally check for Wife and Daughter... occasionally.

Anyway back to the bees flying. After about 10 minutes of sticking to this bee I decided that I must have chosen the only bee in the place that was having a snooze. This is after I chased if from one flower to another... we walked off and 10 minutes later it was still there. Tired bee.

Boss Its the Crane the Crane
Boss Its the Crane the Crane (Samsung Galaxy S)

After a shocking pun if you understand the pun (if you're as old as me) why would you go any further? Well don't... thank goodness that I have got rid od my only viewer. Been a slow and busy week really. Lots of messing with house business and then a surprise. On Monday I got a month's worth of traffic in a day... what the heck was that you might think, in fact I was expecting a drop after banning a spammer from my site but no. Seems like a BBC program on 7/7 mentioned Matthew “Stan” Brewster who dies on that day and suddenly there was a rush to look for “stan brewster walkway” for which I am one of the top links. Hoorah.... with any luck I shall keep te new influx of traffic, but somehow I doubt.

In addition to that busyness, I have been feverishly (well perhaps that's going too far) extending my reach with the current What Bin Day country-wide domination. But you're not here to hear this, you're here for the pics and this one is in the museum at Manchester University. It's a picture of the 1000 cranes sited there. I'm assuming that these aren't the real cranes but it's about the good luck that cranes bring in Japanese and Chinese culture. The exhibit is about Sadako who was ill from radiation from the war in 1945 (there were no specifics really) who believed if you folded 1000 cranes for a wish then your wish would come true. Her friends and classmates helped here on the way to 1000 cranes. I'm assuming due to the omissions on the plaque next to the exhibit that her wish never came true but in some way she will be alive forwever... in the 1000 cranes... and in the plaque.
