Hi Wiz,
Chears Mateyy.
The vultures, Well I accidentally slipped with the brush tool and it looked a bit like a bird, (if you squint after alcohol) So I did a few more for the circling Vultures look. I think it may look fake but not sure it matters as the pics been altered to have unreal colors etc anyway. Be interested in any opinions on that or anything else.
Thank's Wiz.
Mark

Hi Mark, I really like your pics you post, its almost like a travel brochure at times. I spotted Spud in 2 and 5, which are very close in composition. I never knew England had such wide open spaces. These are very interesting.

Ah, I was worried you may be a serial killer and these were pic's of your dumping ground...

I feel much better now...

Hi Robert, Cheers Mateyyy.
You found Spud, I cloned him out of a few others as he was taking over.
"I never knew England had such wide open spaces" Well it's funny I was born here and have only ever been away to France so I,ve never really questioned how it compares here to other places.
There are big open spaces "the moors" but there never far from Civilization. It's like theres a lot of stuff all crammed into a small area. It's unusual to walk for very long without meeting other people walking as everyone wants to get to the open spaces when they have some time.
Plymouth city ( Pilgrim fathers) is a 5 min drive and 10 min ferry crossing away, 30 mins in either direction goes to old moorland with ancient mines, caves and derelict buildings. Quaint old fishing villages are a 10 min drive away. Rocky, pebbly or sandy beaches are 5 to 10 min drive away. Old churches seem to be everywhere. and there are 3 interesting islands within an hour drive.
Crikey theres a whole load of photo opportunities here. I think I'm lucky being on a Peninsula as theres never far to travel to find interesting things. I,m loving this taking pictures and really thankful to everyone who comments. I have bipolar disorder and having such a great hobby and great friends on here is brilliant and is driving me forward.
Thank's Mateyyy.
Mark

While it was rather easy spotting the dog, I spotted domething else rather interesting in the first pic. If you zoom in on the window that is partially hidden by the tree, I can imagine a face in the window. I know it is the stonework but with just a little imagination it looks like a womans figure with her head turned left over her shoulder. Is that place haunted? or do I just have too much vision for my own good? ( I zoomed in about 400 percent to see it closely). Frank

Hi Frank,
Lol, you made me laugh, have you thought about joining the new group Pixel Peepers Anonymous ?
Well we have seen it, Well spotted, it's just like you say. my wife found it creepy. It could be haunted there.
There is a Big Black cat that is spotted up there sometimes, it's called the beast of bodmin people think it,s a Panther.
I can hear my Wife shouting,"" put the printer on I want to see a close up of the window""
It's amazing you seen that. I'm going to have a look at the colour original and see wht it's like.
Cheers Frank
Mark
