Fairy Lights (ICM)

ICM is when you deliberately move the camera... often night time lights.
This is two different ICM photos of our 2021 Christmas lights, combined then mirrored.

'Bout time I changed what I look at in the mornings!!

 I haven't posted for yonks.... mainly because there's been nothing like the hare incedent happening here at all.... and I had very nasty legs for a while and that and Covid kept me from doing things that I could blog about.... so what have I been doing.

With the help of Alex and Nicole, I have managed to get on top of the potager.... just in time to start gardening properly and get hit by this years drought!! Gah!!!!

I have been putting data up to iNaturalist because it is important for data to be collected and publicised during this period of rapid climate change and it is a worldwide site.... and very easy to add your observations to as all you have to do is post the photo and it lifts date and time from your photo's metadata.... and your position if you are using a 'phone or have your camera's GPS turned on.

I have also been posting photos to a site called Photocrowd.... you put photos in for adjudication under different themes and the "crowd" rate your photographs.
I am currently in the top 3.5% out of 17,000 photographers.... which is quite a boost to the old morale.
And because of that, I thought I would post some of those pictures on an irregular basis, but more frequent of late.....

Now, how do I add photos on this.....
