Four ways of looking





...of looking at a rotting pier in a sea loch.

  1. It's beautiful. I thought for a second that Monet had started painting again ... Very impressionistic!

  2. Fascinating...

    You have a very special way to look at things, and to present them. Either with photos. Or with words.

    Thanks!

  3. Thanks people. That is a new crop of one of my all time favourite photos, taken in 2010, and you can see the original wider view here in my old blog post:

    It's interesting how just cropping out a detail can make such a difference. I do love both the old uncropped and new cropped versions.

  4. When I go back to that old blog post it seems some of the original comments from Claude have disappeared, so my responses make even less sense than they did originally. That is strange.

  5. It's a good thing some of my comments disappeared. I didn't know what I was talking about. Just trying to look smart.....

  6. It looks equally appealing from all angles!

  9. I thought I commented on this. Did I? Or did I get spammed again?
    Whatever, I really like this/these.

  10. I have just checked my SpamRobot's bin Dear Lady Ashley of the Eyeballs That Syncopate (to give you your full and formal title for once), and I see no comment from you (though I do see a few invitations to buy things I don't want and to visit places I, and probably my wife, would prefer that I avoid). Strange... Perhaps SpamRobot hates you so much he is chewing you up immediately without storing? But I like you, however much SpamRobot tries to protect me from you :) Persevere with comments please. I wonder why it is only you that has such troubles though? Hmmm... these very, very scary and Devilish self-portraits you sometimes post... That's not the real you with all the make-up and poster paint washed off is it?

  11. Oops! I'm sorry for sending you on a fruitless search through your spam files. I must have only thought I commented. Scatterbrain.
    Re: my pictures. Well, Andrew, just be glad I don't post my morning face, nor forget to turn on the soft focus. All much scarier than anything I've posted so far.

  12. Ach the spam files gave me and Dulcinea a fine laugh, since one of them matter of factly informed me: "Dozens of local women are waiting to become fuckbuddies with you."

    "This is a small village my dear," the lovely Dulcinea commented,"and you are not at your peak any more are you? so I really do doubt it, unless they think your royalty cheques these days are much bigger than the ones you show me."

    Honestly... A lady questioning the size of my cheques? I felt quite diminished.

    But then she remembered there were dozens of local women in the old folks home high on the hill, and actually she became quite interesting in sharing her burden with them.
