Mobile Statue Standing...



A looooong time ago I received this fine little picture of Sarah (more widely known as Rufus Fan to some), but this picture was slightly different to the ones I usually post in that it had been taken using her mobile phone. At the time I also had a couple of statue pics on my phone, so I thought I would simply transfer these onto my computer and then I could write a nice little post on the joys of taking photos of statues on your phone…

…four months and a fair bit of faffing around later and I have finally managed to transfer my photos onto this here computer! I’m a bit rubbish at these technical tasks you see.

So, my humble apologies to Rufus Fan for taking so long to publish her photo. The effects of a few glasses of wine and an obvious desire to hug the Robin Hood statue at Nottingham castle is clear for all to see!



Unlike the photos from my phone! This one allegedly features friend Espen stood by a statue in Waterloo train station in London.



While this one features Ems and Sean stood by a lovely golden Buddha statue in Hyde Park, London. It wasn’t foggy, honest!

I think I have finally worked out how to get phone pictures onto the computer now, so if you are out and about but do not have your camera with you, then take a snap on your phone and send it to me and I’ll publish it. They’re bound to come out better than my efforts!

Four months, you say? I think I'm still recovering from the hangover.
Still, it's an opportune reminder of what not to do after a few birthday vinos tonight....
Thanks, John, splendid timing!

That's the Albert Memorial, isn't it? Rather than a Buddha, I mean.

Ahem, thanks Bee, you are quite correct (as illustrated here). My statue research reaches horrible new lows!

Happy birthday Rufus fan - hope have a good night! (although the hugging of statues of legends is strongly encouraged here)
