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.

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!
