    So she lies on the hill up back facing the sunsets forever. This is her possy.

    Well, it’s beautiful. We moved recently, and the card you gave me many years ago with Stella's photo on (IIRC?) was still above the coffee machine in the old garage. Now I’m trying to remember where it ended up. I’ll probably find it in 5 years time, when we finally get all the boxes unpacked. :-)

    Stella dog has been pushing up daffodils and daisies. These are on her grave at the mo.

    Oh, arohanui Sofie. Was this recent, or did I miss something previously? Anyway, wishing you all the best.

    In town to grab the new Foals album, which I predict will be the one which makes them so popular, we'll have to start pretending we don't like them;

    For ‘What Went Down’, written in their Oxford “stinkbox”, they have found their fulcrum. Riffs. Massive, fucking heavy cavern rock riffs, the size of cathedrals and the weight of God’s balls.

    sayeth NME,

    I was distracted by the release of Jean Paul Sartre Experience I Like Rain, in a mouth watering, wallet busting, vinyl box set.

    Wow. The download code gets you 54 Flac files. 3 hours and 20 minutes of JPSE goodness.

    Flex.

    These tui were just contributing to our binge drinking culture.

    Jetty St, Dunedin.

    The plaster on blue horizon is one of my favourite things. 2nd only to petal on blue. :-)

    Excuse me while I test a theory.

    ETA: Theory proven... sort of.

    The images you posted were full size, and the system may not like that when making a thumbnail. I resized them using preview to maximum 1200 height, then saved them again.

    However, in an unscientific moment, I also changed the case of the extension from .JPG to .jpg, as there have been issues parsing the uppercase version before.

    Which means... I don't know which one worked.

    Further research may be required to change current practice. :-)

    iPhone, actually, but I guess the same issues apply. Alternatively, I’d go with photographer incompetence as a plausible explanation. :-)

    The Apple fell sideways from the tree?

    Actually, at least for me, if you click through to the image itself, it re-orients to right way up. So something going on in the thumb-nailing?

    Anyway, nice shots, and thanks for joining in. :-)

    Strangely poppy like magnolia against the blue.

    unfolding

    It's a very springy thing, innit?

    It's the eye contact, right?

    She's a femme fatale.
