Despite my prediction of fog there has been barely a wisp of cloud from three thirty this morning until just now when the odd bit of fair weather cumulus has arrived. It is baking hot. Not even a sea breeze to take the edge off.
We had a walk first thing but I didn’t take the camera. I then came back had breakfast and watched the GP qualifying on I Player. It looked freezing in Montreal.
I was just setting out on my second wander when I was accosted by a young lady. I took no notice. It’s not something that happens very often. The Swiss girl staying next door had seen me playing with mine. My camera! Cleanse your minds it’s a religious day up here. She wanted to know why hers wouldn’t work. I took a look, sucked air hard through my teeth as I’ve seen experts do, then after a minute of nodding and perusing….. Asked her. “Where is the battery?” It was on charge in her van, often where mine is after I’ve walked for miles with a useless box of tricks. That problem solved she then wanted to know how to use it on manual settings…..Yes!! My luck has changed but it transpired she was still referring to the camera. I had never realised but for Canon to get an exposure reading you have to half press the shutter button. I’ve just always done it but looking in the book it doesn’t say you have to. Her boyfriend then came out and told her. In no uncertain German terms, that playtime was over. Spoilsport! I know I had much more knowledge to impart.
I’ve framed todays snaps as I know I could come back here twenty times and never see weather like it.
Have a great week.
