great flower pictures lyn i still cant upload pictures to this site dont know whats going on i might have to back to Chrome
and you punkdoc and David loved your pictures as well
Thank you, Ann.
Can you not upload your pics into Photobucket first, then copy them (click direct option) and post them here via pasting them to 'an external site' option? ...I do this sometimes.
I use IE version 11.
its this tablet thats causing the problem David it was fine until i removed google chrome because after the last time it upgraded the text was very small on all web sites.
no problem with my laptop but i dont usually turn it on every day the tablet is more convenient easy to carry round the house, i have tried to load a picture that i have put on before and it wont let me its just this site i can put pictures on face book
Ah, that must be frustrating for you, Ann.
I use the old fashioned steam desktop mainly; with Virgin’s 32mb broadband connection it’s pretty quick.
I do have an Acer laptop that I only use when I’m out & about, that uses a Virgin 2G mobile dongle……pretty slow though.
Thank you David, i really do love those close ups of flowers, you see so much beauty like that.
Ann, i only ever use Chrome on the laptop, it takes ages on the tablet to load them and i dont like the photo's it takes either, quality not good. Typing is quess work as well!!
well its working again i downloaded Chrome, technology is great when it works
This is a colourful border I made just using a few cheap packets of annuals.
Not that this will be very interesting to many, but I wanted to say that yesterday evening's camera club session was extremely interesting.
The topic was taking panoramic pictures and I can see it may open up a whole new aspect of photography interest for me..... although I'm not sure how the results would translate to here.
I won't bore you with the technical details, but would say that there is a package to stich the pics together and assemble them. It's called Microsoft ICE and is a free download.....even for me who had never heard of it, found it very easy to use.
180 degree shots are very impressive.

thats a good link David, did you know you can do that with your camera i had a little play the other evening i am hoping to do a complete rainbow with a lot more practice, that flower bed is impressive when you say cheap annuals did you mean seeds or plugs
Hi, Ann.....yes, I've done this with my camera, but it doesn't offer anything like the same scope......and *the software is free & quite easy to understand. As I see it, printing would be my problem, I would probably send it to a CD & have it printed for me.
No, not plugs (perish the thought) as I said 'just cheap packets of annuals.'
*Not sure if there is a Mac version.
These are a few of the Asters in the border of annuals posted earlier and I would add that there were a few geraniums that I did grow from plugs.
Btw, I bought the seed cheap from Wyevale in their end of season sale the previous year.
My take on today
B&W with a colour pop
Thanks, James.....a really nice mum & baby shot.
Cacti make an excellent macro subject.
For anyone interested (participating or lurking) I've found this more detailed tutorial demonstrating Microsoft's ICE free download.
Clueless, what a beautiful picture. What a cutie.
thank you Lily
I have some more to take for a friend in January.
Hiya James. Is this your family? Black n white seems to capture more sometimes. Lovely
