Going to the Pictures

At the start of this project John Hee very kindly agreed to post pictures to my en route blog as I could not find a way to post pictures using my Palm TX PDA through my mobile phone. (That's a cell-phone for the US of A congregation).

So every time I took a picture on the walk I had to take two: One for me (a biggish 7.1 million pixels) and one for the blog (a weeny one) so I could email the weeny one to the excellent Mr Hee via my stone-age telephone on the very rare occasions I had a phone signal or when the O2 servers were behaving themselves. John then very kindly, out of the extreme goodness of his heart, posted them in the batches I sent through, in the right places amongst the text I had already blogged.

This way the blog had a little more 'readability' and impact and I would like to think that it made the fund-raising for Sue Ryder all the more effective.

Since coming back home I have been throwing myself wholeheartedly back into my business and so have not had a lot of time to indulge in my blog. However, I have occasionally been diving back into the bowels of my LEJOG photo library - the biggish pictures.

What has been fun is finding the pictures that I took in my minds eye, rather than what the camera actually captured. Put this down to catching a view in the far off distance and your mind zooming in on it and distilling the image. Its all there in the image, it just needs recapturing.

So - I have almost finished and the really good news is that there are a lot more big pictures than weeny ones. So I shall stick them on the web (not sure how as yet!) in the next few weeks so that you can all experience what I saw.

I had an incredibly good time and it's nice to share it with you all.

  1. Hey, Alan, will be great to see your big pics! Especially collected in one place for us to browse through.

    I had a good experience posting mine at You can put them there at high resolution for a few months for free, after which it's pay-a-bit or they low-res you (still very acceptable) and it stays free.
