You have such a good eye for textures and contrasts.

Thanks Hermes.

If I hadn't got left behind, the Reel and Barrel photo would have been posted on Boxing Day - a break from work.

Hi Lucy,
ummm - I left a comment on your last post - but it seems to have vanished away ... this is happening a lot to me on blogger blogs at the moment.
I like your last two pictures - and I hope you are feeling better.

Hello Karen

That's a bit tantalising!

What did you say?

Amy (of Blossom) left a note on Blotanical to say she had wanted to leave a comment here but the visual recognition thing wasn't working so she couldn't. She says that is happening on a lot of Blogger blogs - so maybe there's a connection.

I am feeling better, thank you, - but off and on . . . so I'm trying to sit back from blogging for a couple of weeks and be all family-and-Christmas-and-not-doing-much-at-present-ish . . . but it's hard not to be drawn to the laptop . . . and . . . to press the button . . . and . . . take a peek at how everyone is and what they are doing . . . and . . . an hour later think . . . oh, I wasn't intending to do this!

What I said was about the hut at castle cove.

.... I like this picture Lucy - the stories these old buildings could tell ....
It is hard to resist that power button on the computer :)
Glad you are feeling a bit better.

I like that splash of blue.

There is a lot to see in this photo. When I noticed the buildings in the background an idea swept through my brain: wouldn't that photo make a GREAT jigsaw puzzle!!! It would be so much fun to work. Hmmm, I wonder where the puzzle makers get their photos, and how would one go about selling a photograph to them.

Hello Barbie

It's interesting that you remark upon the buildings in the Reel and Barrel picture. I'd wished I could take the photo without including them in it.

Interesting suggestion too about jigsaws. I think the one with the bed of new nettles which I posted a while ago might make a good one too. (Certainly a challenging one.) I'll look into it. Thanks for the idea.

Incidentally, this is an example of a photo which could only be taken with a camera phone.

The reel and barrel etc. are on a pontoon a few feet from the harbour's edge so I knelt down and stretched my hand out over the water to take it. At that angle, I couldn't see properly through the viewfinder and had to rely on the blueness of the barrel to get things lined up. I couldn't possibly have used two hands without falling in!

When I take photos like this though, my worry is that I will drop the phone - and that would be the end of it!

There were fishermen working on the next boat along. I was a bit nervous that they would come and ask what on earth I was doing. Perhaps they decided women kneeling on harbour pavements are best left alone!
