A great image, Amelia! F&L. I hope you can take it as a compliment when I say it reminds me of the Fifer painter... Regards, Ian
Hi there Amelia :-) This is a cracking shot! What a perspective you have captured :-)
It looks as though the weather for Queenie's big day was kinder here than in Blighty :-(
Many thanks Ian, and I'm sure that it is a compliment, but I have to confess that I have never heard of the Fifer painter! Maybe you can enlighten me.
Warm wishes, Amelia
Hi there Steve, thanks for that wonderful compliment. Yes, it was cold but beautifully sunny day, and we watched the Thames proceedings on the BBC when we we got back to our apartment. Such a shame, but the weather didn't seem to dampen the spirits!
The woman flying the 'pyjama' kite was very worried about getting her string caught up with all the others I think. ;-)
If the Queen saw this she would be pleased.
I'm sure The Queen often visits this site ♥Fairy♥. I know this, because she sends me lots of Panoramio mail, and yes - she loves this one! ;-)
Well done, love the pyjama shadow!
The Soccer one is great too!
greetings Tomas, Toronto (29 c today)
my Jubilee photo is on Pongoramio!
That one makes a good shadow! It looks like a lovely sandy beach. I like kite festivals with a good wind behind them! Like.
Best wishes, Rosa.
Lovely shot Amelia, I really like the shadows, I am amazed they actually fly!! Best wishes. John.
Like and greetings,
Lovely one with the shadow! I'm sure the Queen would have been delighted if the weather in London had been like this:-)
Of course - Vettriano. What an admission of ignorance Ian. I somehow think that those wonderful beach paintings of his, with romantic ladies and their parasols + a butler or two, would have been blown away to the back of beyond if they set foot on Hellestøtranden that day! ;-)
Good morning Tom, I'm really pleased that you liked the shadows here - that was the reason for the photo. The footballer didn't make much contact with the ball though I have to say. He'd never make it on the English football team! Well ... maybe he'd be good enough! ;-)
A 'good wind' doesn't quite describe the conditions here dear Rosa. It was a stiff and cold 'breeze', and we sheltered in the dunes for most of the time; but at least the sun was shining. It's such a pity that we couldn't have transported the sunshine to London!
I think most objects would have been able to take flight here on that day John. In fact, if I had stood on the top of the dunes and opened my anorak, it would have made for an exceptional photo as I took off over the hills. The only problem being that I was holding the camera! ;-)
Hello Arpad, thank you for your visit. I am very happy that you liked this photo.
Yes the weather in London was not good on that day Gudrun - such a pity. We watched the Thames boat procession on the BBC when we got back to the apartment. The poor weather didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm though, I have to say.
The atmosphere must have been fantastic! When I visited England in May many shop windows were already decorated for the jubilee, it was great fun:-)
If you look for it, My jubilee photo was not accepted on pongoramio after all. They said that the Queen is a puppet not a pongo. I am just guessing that the queen would not be amused....
