Royalty Free Zone

Royalty Free Zone, originally uploaded by The Flying Monk.

"Catriona has been back on the island, catching up with friends and family. The past seven days have been a pleasant break from her hectic work schedule. She was due to return to work in London today but her travel plans changed abruptly on hearing a couple of holidaymakers discussing the Royal Wedding. In her time on the island she'd totally forgotten about it. A split second later she was sprinting up the ferry slipway, not stopping until she made it all the way back to Scalpay and her grandfather's house, 28 miles and three hours later. No TV. No radio. No phone. No bunting. No street party. No electricity. No possible means of hearing or seeing anything remotely connected to the 'big day'. Now Catriona can relax. On Friday, just like every other day, grandfather's house will be a royalty free zone."

Dukes view...

Dukes view..., originally uploaded by ouldm01.

There was heavy mist in the Trossach this morning, so I found myself going over the Dukes Pass to find a beautiful sunrise... and some wonderful layered forest views...

All Aboard

All Aboard, originally uploaded by The Flying Monk.

"Brand new Special Boat Service for the Isle of Harris was launched tonight, literally.
Katie's Kruizes offer moonlit boat trips in the waters off the east coast of Harris. Former fishing boat 'Dileas' has been fully renovated and complies with all current safety standards. Climb aboard and enjoy a couple of hours fishing in the peaceful waters of the Minch or simply kickback, relax and help yourself to a drink from the well stocked bar.
Skippered and maintained by Katie herself."

Before and after

Before and after, originally uploaded by dictybloke.

"We watched the "Dove" commercial on youtube - you know, the one about how girls' self-image is harmed by processed models that look impossibly thin and tall and unrealistic shapes and complexions - and of course she wanted to be processed just like that.


So here's my girl before and after digital treatment.

Fortunately we both know how she really looks, and we both like her that way. A photo is a photo."

Smells Good

Smells Good, originally uploaded by David C Walker 1967.

"It has been a while since I actually set out to capture a red squirrel image and decided to give them a treat with hazelnuts for past services rendered. This little guy was only a matter of 6 feet from the hide and was not bothered by me clicking away - I think I will go back next weekend before these lose the winter coat and long hair on the ears."
