It Never Ends



Inevitably after sunshine come mist!  It has taken all morning to disperse.  It was almost like being in Edinburgh once again!  This morning I had intended to return to the cemetery and grab some early morning pictures but the mist hindered this so I did nothing whatsoever, although I was supposed to do several things.  
The problem you see was the pictures on the WW2 memorial they were too big! The wee camera pictures come out at around a 1000k, the fancy new camera bought at a quarter of the original price come out at around 6-7000k each!  This means I ran out of space quickly.  Bah!  I discovered this when I had almost completed upgrading the original photos.  I could not work out why I had used 95% of the space when I had 27 pictures and around 90 men there and the WW1 memorial had 61 photos and over 200 men!  Technology is too much for my dim mind.  
So once again I had to slog it down the road, this time in bright and indeed hot sunshine, with weary knees and a lack of food inside me, I forgot to eat properly last night again.  When the mist cleared off I went seeking out the stones from last week.  They were still there I noted.  It would have annoyed me had they moved during the previous days.  
So now I have to once again go through the site removing and adding for the umpteenth time.  Oh joy! Sometimes I wish I had not started this.  Bah!

In other news the election continues....yaaaawn.....

I'd been thinking of getting a new camera...but am now too terrified by the technical challenges of using the brute to go ahead.

Is it a setting on the camera to change the resolution ~ you might need to read the manual or Google.
I sometimes don't eat properly too when I get preoccupied with this and that.

Lee, Most of the day....

Carol, The new camera i computerised, I need your brain to understand what it is telling me! The manual makes me faint!

Adullamite said...

Fly, The wee camera is simple enough but the new one takes time to adjust to. I use the 'auto' feature a lot!

You will be thrilled when it is done though. Not only will it be over but you will have achieved something!

Adullamite said...

Jenny, Indeed that is so. It has also helped others find relatives and that also is what it is there for.

You tube is a good way of learning the manual quickly. Election continues but when you go looking for campaigners in London none are to be found. Not even a leaflet in the mail box. Do they all think we aren't worth the effort?

Mo, I suspect you will get plenty of leaflets through the door via Royal Mail. We used to get paid around 6 pence for each one we delivered so they will be arriving soon.
