    After a kind and nice advice from Tigre, I’m starting this new thread named “photos”, so please share your photos for the pleasure of UIB contributors and readers (some of us love it !)

    Here is one I took a while ago

    Our garden is a little full of building rubble but these little beauties managed to find their way through.

    My garden at the last house – now, sadly has been left to overgrow, rack and ruin.

    'Forever Together' Hydrangea

    My garden now – where on earth to start!   :wacko:

    I took this one in october, a bit of our honeysuckle

    15th February 2019 at 1:09 pm #457141

    It’s a sparrowhawk I think Babeth – I love honeysuckle!

    Beginning of a love story ?

    “what beautiful pics”

    Thank you Commandmum

    Great Sunset pics Pumpkin and Fruitcake.  Love the buster Pigeon trying to fit in the birdbath  LOL

    Great clarity on your photos Babeth – what camera do you use? The Honeysuckle is amazing. :good:

    I’m using a Lumix TZ70. Clarity talking, here are others pics I took a while ago. This is a nice pocket camera, but doesn’t do everything, the light and subject are important too. A lot of my pics finish up in the bin !

    15th February 2019 at 7:34 pm #457224

    I just love looking at them all, thank you.  :rose:

    15th February 2019 at 8:20 pm #457246

    A walk on another beach in guernsey, just before sunset today


    15th February 2019 at 9:33 pm #457271

    Those are great! Thanks, Babeth – I have the TZ20 so, I guess I need to upgrade – I see there is an ad for best 2018 camera – Panasonic Lumix TZ 200! When I got the 720 I was on my way to USA  and we did the Grand Canyon – but, driving through a canyon drive with snow falling and then on the highways  – I was just snapping this little camera out of the window and the clarity, considering we were travelling quite fast (not the time in the snow), was amazing. I find it frustrating not being able to see the shot in the window if it is sunny, my last camera had a viewfinder and that was a great help, but focusing took a second too long! The Panasonic is good for pocket and can go anywhere. What do you think of the little square go pro jobs with the anti-shake and anti all the other things? Trying to put up a couple of mine that I like but too big – gotta go back to source and change the size  :wacko:

    It’s hard to go wrong with water, columns and arches

    15th February 2019 at 9:58 pm #457283

    Chekiwiki, here is a link given by VK months ago to downsize a picture. As I’m posting mine on Facebook too, I just copy them back from it, and the size is already ok for the forum. I don’t know about the little go pro, I’m a complete beginner in photography. What interest me in my camera, is it has a good zoom, which is precious when you like taking pictures of wild life. It has a view finder too, but don’t often use it. I sometimes think I could do with a tripod, but I’m not sure it will works with a pocket camera …..

    Not a pond but a window in a derelict building


    15th February 2019 at 10:10 pm #457291

    Where is the first picture BartyB ? I like the second one very much too, love it when it makes your brain think a bit !

    15th February 2019 at 10:19 pm #457304

    It’s the cloisters on Isola di San Michele (the cemetery island), Venice

    16th February 2019 at 1:42 pm #457434

    Lovely photos. Clever Barty!

    Here’s one of my favourites taken in Australia

    Very good pics BartyB and Fruitcake :heart:

    16th February 2019 at 10:32 pm #457597

    Out of focus, but one of my favourite snaps. Mombasa. Kenya.

    16th February 2019 at 11:30 pm #457601

    Isn’t it where health and safety has starded, no ? :scratch:

    17th February 2019 at 12:08 pm #457676

    Thank you for the link Babeth – I have checked it out and it will be a great help. I use Picasa and usually go back to that and re-send back to my file re-sized – but such a pain going back and forth. Unfortunately, I had prepared this message uploaded some pics and then realised that the internet had dropped – lost everything!

    Your pond/window pic is very interesting BartyB – love those ‘figure ‘m out’ photos – very clever. What camera do you use? The reptile/bottle has great clarity.

    Here is one of my favourites – taken on the beach one sunset last summer Les Grèves d’en Bas, four minutes from our house.


    17th February 2019 at 12:10 pm #457677

    [quote quote=457083]My favourites through the window[/quote]

    Gotta have the camera at hand for those kind of pics Fruitcake – love the one of the pigeon having a bath – squeezing himself into the birdbath LOL
