May's Pictures

Lyme Drops
Lyme Drops (Orange San Francisco)

After tense negotiations with my daughter over how many pieces of bread she wanted for a sandwich broken down I hit the roof and the UN were called. Since the UN didn't think this was an issue of national importance they declined (how wrong they were) and I went back to slamming a ham sandwich together, yes slamming. Just a note for casual readers, there is no point in slamming a ham sandwich together, the most sound a slammed sandwich can make is a pathetic slapping sound which is no good for a tortured soul.

So with the conflict downgraded to guerilla war I plodded through to the lounge where I found that because of the sandwich crisis I had missed the start of one of if not the best spectacle in Formula 1... the Monaco Grand Prix. The only other contenders are Spa Francorchamps and Brazil, all for different reasons. Needless to say that this capped the day off to a tee.

So with the options of throttling members of my family (in a Homer vs Bart way) or going to Lyme Park I decided to choose the path that involves least criminal sentences.

So to the pic. This is one where at last the Orange San Francisco finally kicks out a cracking shot. It really does seem weird that smartphone cameras are pretty rubbish in general but get up close and get the light right and the pictures are pretty fantastic... well I think so, another example is a really close up picture of a baby frog which again was so close I was an inch or two off the frog, similarly here I was so close that I was in danger of darkening the picture with the shadow of the phone itself, luckily the day was so overcast that there was no danger of a shadow so I was probably able to get closer than on a sunny day... but then again on a sunny day there would be less chance of rain really. So bonus points for the San Francisco.

Kaleidoscope Window
Kaleidoscope Window (Nikon D5000)

There has been so much going on and so little time/opportunity to take pictures. Well where do I start? I have no idea other than last weekend was a weekend in Ireland to watch Eurovision... nah not really it was a 21st which was alright and very very successful for others owing to the time in the morning that people sloped back at. Needless to saw with a 10 year old in tow it was an early night after watching... Eurovision with the whole pub behind Jedward, every time they got anything there were cheers... and I thought that people were being ironic when they said that theywatched Eurovision. For my nephew it was all too much as Iteland descended the ranks and he wanted to go home. Better luck next year

Anyway back to the pic. Of course with no camera time there was nothing to take and so here's a picture of the stained glass window in Palma Cathedral. There were a couple, one of which was the light that it projected onto one of the walls which was pretty but whilst this is less abstract I liked it better so perhaps I shall leave that for another day.

Kenilworth Castle Carving
Kenilworth Castle Carving (Nikon D5000)

No pics this weekend. I'm assuming definitely no pics next as it might not be the best pic fest. I'm just being the perfect appendage and it takes a weekend.

This is where we went to Kenilworth Castle. Down in the dungeons I saw this. Now either this is authentic or someone is having a laugh. Either way I like the perfect carving. I don't think I would have carved this so correct and to box it too. I think the box impressed me to be honest, though they went over at the top left... but I can forgive.
