I'm very happily retired and am lucky to live near the Thames and some big royal parks, which all gives plenty of photo inspiration. I'm finding photography has become my main hobby/passion - but it's very frustrating; I can never seem to reproduce the photo I have in my brain! But I'll keep trying. Panoramio is one of my happiest discoveries; such brilliant photos by supposed 'amateurs'! Au Revoir, _Brian_.

Beautiful photo ,Like and FAV.

Your very kind compliment much appreciated, Andy. This beaten-up dented trawler was docked here for a couple of days undergoing lots of pretty extensive repairs. That water being pumped from the side went on uninterrupted for the whole 2 days! Didn't seem to make any difference to the readings of those plimsol markings at the front. Just how much water can a boat hold without sinking?!

Best wishes, Brian.

Thanks again, Andy. Chuffed you like this one too. Compared with the other one, gives a more accurate idea of the weather I had. See ya!


Hello, Andy! Long time no hear! - my fault, I know; haven't had any photos to upload, and I seem to be drifting away from Panoramio in favour of Flickr and 500px.Anyway, always good to hear from you. Sorry about the Canon, can't remember how I used to charge my Ixus 750; am sure, though, you could order what you need if you trawl Internet: ah, but what the heck! - why bother? Canon was only meant to be a stop-gap when you were 'without camera' (makes me uneasy when I hear of somebody without a camera!). Anyway, about this here Balnakiel beach - it really is something special, stretches for 1.5 miles and, so I've read, the 'sand' is actually ground-up shell from countless criturs existing eons ago. I quite like this photo myself - ignoring that lump of rock, has a sort of abstract minimalist look don't you think? And did you spot the half-naked backpacker trudging-by at the base of the rock? Lucky he was there, gives perspective as to how big the rock is. I think I'll make another photo of this by a drastic crop so that he's the focus of the scene. By for now - I'll be looking-up those Cornish photos of yours soon.

Cheers, Brian.
