Sunday 9 May 2010: TALES OF THE RIVERBANK
The day began in an ordinary enough way and I had intended to take myself off down the road for a wander and a search for suitable blips. However I then took a 'phone call from MsGable and after talking blip for some time she invited me over to her place for a cup of tea and a chinwag. My camera and I took ourselves off and when I arrived at MsGable's abode we decided to have a walk around the village. We stopped off at the church (many photos were taken in the churchyard of cherry blossom trees, 'ordinary' trees of myriad hues, views of the hills in the distance and one of the very leafy lane running by the church). We then moved off for a walk along the riverbank and again there were plenty of blip opportunities. However, in the end I had to go with the above bloom which was found extremely near to the water's edge. I took the shot with my camera on it's zoomiest zoom but with no other alterations. MsGable also took the same shot and when we compared the two she declared that mine was by far the sharper and I have to agree with her.
No skill was involved (as far as I was concerned) but my camera seems to have compensated for my inadequacies.
Having blipped to our hearts' content we returned to chez Gable where MrGable made us a very welcome cup of tea.
