haiku + images
giant walks overhead and
no one notices.
The walking man is protecting his head, just in case.
You just can’t be too careful when there are invisible giants walking about.
In the past I have complained about how the WordPress Reader crops images – portrait shaped images are particularly badly affected as a horizontal slice is shown and without text this is a very thin letter-box shape. Sometimes however it does an image a good service. I don’t know whether you ‘follow’ yourself (sounds daft I know) but if you do then you can see exactly what WordPress does to your images in the Reader. In this case, the Robot/Computer/Zombie that runs things over at WP has shown a thin slice through the central area showing three areas of fabric and the two sections of buildings between them. It’s the image within the image – and very powerful it is too.
I agree completely with your complaints about the way the Reader crops images, which is usually detrimental to the photos we post. But, once in a very great while the Robot/Computer/Zombie does something good!
(And yes, I do follow myself. I did it early on, so I’d at least have one follower!)
Spotting those shoes made me laugh. And the kid walking by with his hands up like that added…something…to the scene.
By the way, I’m going to be in the U.K. at the end of the month. Watch for me – I’ll be the one with the camera…
Haha, you’ll be easy to spot then! You are coming at the best time of the year. Are you travelling within the UK or just one destination?
Yes, I should stand out! We’ll spend nearly a week in Stow-on-the-Wold, and take day-trips from there. Then we’ll join up with a tour group in London.
Excellent. Coincidentally my wife and I will be down near Stow this coming weekend. I am doing a presentation to the Royal Photographic Society. Hope you have a great time!
That’s funny – once again, I’ll be just behind. Maybe I’m closing the gap and we’ll get to actually meet one of these days!
