Yesterday was pretty grim. Internet was intermittent-net. I hate it when it does that. No internet is fine but when it keeps dropping out at random it makes me use very naughty words. Not a good idea with children about and the window open. I also felt dog rough. I occasionally do but if I’ve been to the pub and had a skin full then I know it’s nothing serious and after a good walk and breakfast I’ll be fine or at least back to normal.
This morning I took the dogs out and feel okay, well, middling to good. I then packed up the truck, retrieved Bertha; I’d lent her to the site warden but I don’t think he used her or if he did I never saw the results. We then set off and drove south. What a journey I’d no sooner left than I’d arrived at Gairloch. The temperature gauge had barely shifted. It’s a good job I don’t have a particle filter on the van, the crap diesel I fill up with in Scotland would have filled it to the brim.
This is a bit of Gairloch, It’s actually a place called Strath but it’s a suburb of Gairloch.
Like most Scottish towns it is pretty much a one road town with little to recommend it architecturally. The views are better than many English ones. I will have to learn to accept the towns and concentrate on the scenery.
I’ll have to look into this and tune in. It’s Two Lochs Radio. Bloody mad are folk round here. There is also a good book shop and a Mace for the necessities. I’m only here for three nights, I’ll have a wander and see what I can find.
I did find a millimetre scale that was half reasonable. I took these this morning.
A Garden Snail’s head at twice life size. I did get a shot of it’s eye but the rest was a blur. The scale is life size so divide any scaling by two. This is a Wild Angelica flower and a bit of cobweb at life times two. It’s the same scale across the top but I got rid of the white background using the multiply blend mode. If I’d used lighten then the black writing would vanish.
I seem to recall that the other day I stated that the frames were 36mm on the diagonal. I’m sorry I was jabbering. 35mm film is 35mm across the film including the drive spools, the image bit is 36mm x 24mm. I’ll keep working at this and when I find an easy way of doing it I’ll pass it on. This is the fifth ruler and the best….Where did I save it?
