Experiment Failed

It seems my trial of the Sway app on my photography page is not going to be a success.

Apart from reported viewing difficulties, I have found that I cannot modify it or add new images without uploading a whole new set and creating an entirely new page each time.

Given that Panoramio is closing, I shall look into other ways to display the photos I consider to be my best, or that are most meaningful to me.

Experiment 2

Experiment 1, My Photo Gallery, was a failure, so I moved it to a new page here or you can click the “photographs” link at top right.  I wanted to have a page that catalogued all my favourite photographs and I constructed it using the Sway App from Microsoft.  But the app seemed to play havoc with my layout and kept picking up bits of previous posts.  I am hoping it will work better as a stand-alone page.

I would appreciate comments as to how it appears to users who may be viewing it on platforms I am not acquainted with.  I am no expert when it comes blog page design and layout.  I just picked a simple theme and followed the instructions.

Determination.

This is me looking determined.

This is Taistealaí and me negotiating a washout in the track to Lake Komaterpillar.

It may not look like it in the photo, but it was a tricky spot.  Chasm to the right, gully to the left.  One slip and disaster.

I asked Rachael to get out and walk in case I rolled the car.  I’m glad I did because she took a cool photograph of me being intrepid.  Intrepid used to be my byword.

This post is a photographic art metaphor for my last few days.

Chasm negotiated.

Equanimity restored again.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

 

Every day is Mental Health Day.  Be nice to each other.

Lonely Places

“Seek lonely places and be still, listening, hearing the songs and cries of the winged ones, the sounds of the four-leggeds, and the cries of the insect people; feeling the breath and touch of the earth, of leaves, of bark; for all have messages for you… “

Sees-Beyond-The-Lightning, of the Sioux.

 

This year I am going to find out what a night out camping in a lonely place can do for the young ones.
