Then an Now


Before any reminiscing, I’ve just eaten a piece of cheesecake the size of a brick, which has left me feeling a little bit sick. (It rhymes). Darn it, I’d forgotten we’re going out for a meal tonight! Think I might be restricted to just a starter of garlic mushrooms, and leave it at that, (burp). Well it’ll save a bob or two, (burp).

Perhaps I should’ve called this post:
 
“How to depress someone in 2 easy steps.”
 
It only came about because I looked outside before and did the comparison thing, you know, the one that makes you think “if only…”

A pumpkin on the pier

Here’s an example of how not to promote your own photo, without praise or prejudice,, or even pride and prejudice:
 
Let me introduce you to Percy the Pumpkin…

Our mean looking friend Percy here has got his own temporary mooring on our pier for a few days sat atop of a green box. He’s very welcome but gives you quite a fright when you’re staggering back from the pub in the dark.

No adjustment of colour, balance, contrast ratio, exposure, noise reduction, retouch or straightening required. Yet, as the moon rises, so does the luminous effect in this photo. Weird.
Fruity Pumpkin Power…?

Previously unseen footage of our last time out on the canal this year



Well, on the boat anyway…
 
We took some friends out for a trundle down the canal, on what later turned out to be our last "canal caper" till next year.

A sausage birthday?

First of all these were taken last night, hence the subtle mood lighting, which has been totally wrecked thanks to the flash on the camera going off.
 
Spot the sausage…

Note the colour coordination thing going on there as well…
