Lots of Pretty Pictures This Sunday
Here are Will and Ed busking on a street corner in Bath ten days ago. They asked me to take a picture of them, and they particularly wanted to be photographed with Advert Girl because they rather liked having her looking over their shoulders while they sang.
I am ridiculously pleased with this picture. It was taken on Will's mobile phone. For me mobile phones are a technological step too far and I am the only member of our family not to have one. Will had to show me which way round to hold it and what to press. Looking at the screen was a waste of time because the sun was so bright I couldn't see anything on it, so this photo was taken by just aiming and pressing. I took several just in case, because I was sure I was pressing too hard and giving it camera shake. I'm not used to taking photos with gadgets not much bigger than a packet of fags.
Will and Ed are now making good progress on their walk northwards. They are taking some wonderful photos on the way, which you can see in their Flickr gallery. My particular favourites are of poppies in a field of rapeseed and of a pony and foal - completely gorgeous pictures.
