Wow! Fantastic shot Lilith.

Hope you had a good hol and are feeling refreshed.

Lilith said...

Thank you Philipa! I can't take credit for it however...Boyfriend took it whilst I gazed, slack-jawed...

A bit stiff and chilled but in good spirits, thank you! How's your head?

Lilith said...

I have also decided that camping in the south west is probably not a good idea when Glastonbury or Wimbledon are on: certain rain.

Great pic, wouldn't have wanted to endure that storm in the VW Camper to the left of the shot(s)!

Lilith said...

HaHa TT! The camper was gone first thing in the morning...three ill equipped young men...

I thought the camper was yours. I was jealous.

I like camping too.

Lilith said...

Kev, I have a plan to weld a caravan onto the back of a Mercedes Sprinter truck....maybe even a bespoke shed....dunno if insurance would wear it tho.

Camera takes the credit for the shot(s); it has a panorama feature which allows you to flag successive pictures as linked together, and the software stitches them together best it can.

Bless digital cameras; after a lifetime with Brownies and Instamatics, taking pictures of my fingers all over the world (I'm huge with huge hands), digital camers mean I can now actually take pictures that are worth looking at :-) (Mind you, I'd had the camera some months before Lilith worked out HOW to make it take panoramiic pics. The women are (generally) smarter than the men, as the song goes.

My god ! He's huge ... with huge hands !!! :-(

I'd better not try chatting up Lilith then !

(Nice photo)

Lilith said...

Focus on the Campermobile Kev, not the hands!

Lilith said...

He is huge Kev. He got called an "overgrown hippy" by an irate Urban 4x4 driver he took issue with yesterday...

electro-kevin said...

Not THE 4x4 driver I hope - that guy needs filling in.

Lilith said...

It was hilarious Kev, almost worthy of a post...

Boyfriend said...

Am delighted with the soubriquet "Overgrown Hippy" and feel a T shirt coming on. Her right to own said 4x4 being

a) She towed a caravan
b) She paid the same road tax as me
c) It kept her kids safe
d) She was a safe driver

a) and your point is?
b) exactly!
c) and is twice as dangerous IN an accident to others
d) evinced by her i) stopping a bus getting through a narrow stretch of road past parked cars & ii) then driving up on the pavement in a residential area.

However a fine exchange of "Fuck yous" enlivened the morning and made for a good workout for my only relatively recently discovered "inner cunt". That's what being any sort of hippy doers for you.

EK, last time I was involved in fisticuffs was at a league cup semi-final at Old Trafford back in the late 60s, where a united fan took exception to a) us winning courtesy of an Alez Stepney mega-Horlicks, and b) the 14 foot long city scarf my beloved Irish Granny knitted for me, as a change from knitting none-matching socks for African refugees. I legged it.

V. peaceful me and not inclined to violence. Not excessive anyway. I leave that to my one of Irish cousins.

boyfriend is a fully paid-up member....

The idiot drove her 4x4 over the pavement outside a childrens' playground and then had the cheek to say she was "a safe driver" and that she needed it to "keep her children safe". As there were no children in her car, and no caravan being towed, her excuses were too flimsey for Boyfriend to swallow. And why did she need "bull bars"? Was that to make sure she wrote off any children she hit completely?
