Photo on BBC News site

November 19, 2010


I sent  this photo into the BBC news web site under ‘Your Pictures’ which is always worth checking.  This photo was taken in Inveraray on Sunday morning (Rememberance Sunday) on our way back from our Campbeltown trip.

One of the blogs I follow is (warning though, sometimes the content is questionable).  Basically a photobomb is when someone gets into a photo either deliberatly or randomly in the background who isn’t supposed to be there, say someone making bunny ears behind your head or jumping into the shot just as the photo was taken.

This is slightly different…


You can read the story here, but basically the squirrel seemed to be interested in the noise made by the self timer on the camera.

Of course this has since led to the squirrel appearing all over the web, the best one I’ve seen so far is:

Uploading Photos

April 13, 2009

Uploaded photos from Fun Monday trip to Balmaha and Inch Cailloch in Loch Lomond.  For the first time I’ve added these to Facebook as well as FLICKR.   I found FLICKR as quick and easy as ever, Facebook was fairly straight forward, but it wasn’t very good at keeping photos in the right orientation with lots of photos needing to be changed again.  But then again you have the advantage of photos only being shared with folk you know and of course the ability to tag people in the photos which adds them to their account.

I don’t think I will stop using FLICKR, but there are certainly advantages from putting photos on Facebook.  Anyway, here they are…

Good Friday Labyrinth

April 11, 2009


This is the fourth year we’ve done this big Labyrinth at St Silas on Good Friday.  The setup took just about all of Thursday (I wrote a bit about how we do that here), and the Labyrinth was open from 10am to 9pm on Friday.  Just as the last people started to make their way through the tear down started.  It was great to have so many people turn up to help pack everything up, fold fabric and move chairs back so that the church is ready for Easter Sunday.

Thanks to all who helped!

Street View fun

March 21, 2009

Google Street View was launched in the UK this week, so like many people I had a look around my area to see if I had been caught picking my nose or scratching myself.  However, I don’t seem to be around my flat, I’m not in the coffee shop or walking about the neighborhood.  I’m not driving because I found where my car was parked.  So basically I have no idea where I am on Street View.

streetview-woodlandsWhat I did find just around the corner was that there was a comfy chair ‘at’ the bus stop around the corner.  I remember this being there for a few weeks,  it doesn’t seem to have been picked up by any of the papers as one of the odd things to find on streetview, but I like it and wonder how long it will be there and if those hilarious drunken students(*) who played this prank know that their hard work has been recorded in this way.

streetview-woodlands2(*) ok so it may not have been students, or indeed drunk and call me boring but I don’t think it is hilarious either I have just typecast them – it’s my blog, I can do that.

I’ve added some photos from the carol service ( and a few from the sale/craft fair on Saturday) to the St Silas FLICKR group.


Not so innocent!

August 28, 2008

I’ve been working on something that’s turned into a challenge and has been incredibly time consuming. It has also meant I’ve been working on the computer all evening so haven’t felt like posting much. Anyway, here are a few photos I took last month and didn’t get around to…

This grass covered van was parked on Woodlands Road Glasgow,
