Imagine if the younger Angelina had been available... as ever, she and her fellow ladies would make the doing of everything so much more worthwhile.

Country clambering today; decidedly not good for the shoes.

I was rummaging about looking for a file and stumbled across this.  It is a view through the fortifications on the island of Tintagel across to the major fortification on the mainland.  Some day soon I hope to dig out the rest of the 4x5 negs I shot around England but this will have to serve me as a motivation for now.

Hi Walter,

Makes one realise what a hard life it used to be: even just visually it makes one feel uncomfortable. I doubt they faced it all with plaster and painted on Burano colours. Which is probably a pity: it would have led to a different national mindset.

Imagine: a nation devoid of empire-building genes... but that's probably wrong; the Venetians weren't backwards in going forwards.

Amongst the soft and rotting timbers of the stricken pine, Lady C found a moment and a place in which to brave the UV and catch a little sunbeam, not to mention a little tan...

Naturally, no way would I have deserted her in this place of luxuriousness; who needs more forest fires? So our love lives to burn another day.

Rob - this is one of your better ones !

1. She's no longer vertical - always better ... :P
2. Nice color at the edge of believability, but not over the top.

Cheers

Thanks!
First 3 are shot with a compact superzoom (Sony HX-50V), crap at pixel level but ok for small prints and I wouldn't get the shot otherwise (first shot is at ~ 710mm on 35 mm equivalent).
Last is with X-E1 and 55-200.

PS. come to think of my D90 with the 70-300 at 300 would get a similar picture but would be much bigger

This is a different view from the Necropolis in Son Real.
It was on the same shoot than Robs version above,
since we went together there.
So it can be seen a as sort of photographic answer.

Here's one that escaped the Necropolis - for the time being.

Several layers of age have been self-edited away, so I trust it fools the Grim Reaper a while yet.

I read a mixture of emotions on that face. Some satisfaction in having memories of better days hanging on the wall, but also perhaps a bit of disappointment that your latest, Lady C, is out of reach.

Fear not, Rob. She will return to enthrall us all again.

Eric

P.S. Nice portrait, Chris!

Rob, I have to say you have the look of a thoroughly nice guy, which is exactly as you present here on LuLa!


That's rather nice of you Keith, but not what the Beeb will be thinking: I bought five DVD RWs the other day, expecting to record a new R'n'R 'definitive' series that's been touted for BBC 4, and what do they do? They change the effin' broadcast footprint, that's what they do! I no longer get BBC 4 as it used to be, I get a scramble. Of course, the crappy soaps etc. still come along just fine, but the HDs are all lost!

Even worse, there are ads running for Sky Arts that will include something devoted to David Bailey, and that's a channel I never had, but that doesn't mean I don't get emotions running high!

So Eric, were Chris's snap taken today, not much 'benign' would be on show!

Screeeeeam!

;-)
