David Wilson's conversations

aka Playa Las Marinas

muchas gracias Greetings from Javea, SPain

An insect, obviously, but not a bug (Hemipteran), but an Orthopteran. Bugs suck (literally!) Orthopterans (grasshoppers, locusts and crickets) chew. Best I can do. You need an expert or keen amateur entomologist to identify the species.This one looks like one of the solitary locust species to me.

This one was the Lumix on "simple" (?) took it into iPhoto. I think the shutter leaves on the Olympus SP 35 are beginning to tire of Cornish rain, I've had some disappointments.

We've had masses of rain,I wanted to try getting something from it, these two are taken on a Lumix digital camera on a beer glass, I was being a smartyass with the name Longrock Long=Hir Rock=Maen.

Yes, I like that Cidre from Northern Spain and Basquelands in particular, I was thoroughly humiliated by a bar tender who stood on a step ladder to refill my glass in Donestia thus forcing a "head" on to the drink - pure theatre at the cost of my pride; quickly restored after witnessing fresh happless victims, I also accepted what I thought to be a sample of Basque Cider, which I gulped in one, only to be charged a euro, I was expecting my host to be looking for a nod of approval before pouring a descent measure!

Well...so so. Just an aide memoire regarding the flood after effects really.

"I saw the contest button and just had to vote. It belongs right up there with some of the other photos that have won the contest!" _ lol! Excellent backhander! _ Yes... well technically it turned out OK, which is gratifying, but its not a thing of beauty that I'd want printed up large and on my wall...collections of ugliness should be kept hidden away from the light of day, and enjoyed in solitary perverse pleasure.. like pRoN... ps Thank you for your vote

Sadly the palm tree is no longer there as it was blown over during a recent gale.

The softening and grain caused by IS0 1250 works very well with this subject. Normally these effects are unwanted and detrimental, but I think in this instance, the image is improved.
