Since my mobility is still hampered, I haven’t been able to get out and do much shooting so I have been perusing my old files and seeing what looks different to me; a review if you will. Some things look better, some worse, some about the same. Such is life, eh? While wishing I felt better and dreaming of traveling abroad again the trip to England file came up and I started to fondly remember my first day on the ground and how chilly it was to me that day. The jet lag didn’t smack me upside the head until after this picture was taken and I actually fell over backwards onto the bed at the hotel with DH trying his best to keep me awake.
He lost that battle but not entirely. I slept for an hour or so and wobbled back up and out into the city. My plan was to take the Big Red Bus (think that was what it was called) and see the highlights of the city on day one so that I could get a wee bit of my bearing about me and then decide what I wanted to go back to. Some things I did make it back to, some I wanted to but never made it, others were placed in the ‘I’ve seen it, I’m done’ file, and one – featured in this photo – I walked past every day we were there but for the time when we were in Devon.
This shot was taken as we were busing over the Thames (I made sure I scampered up to the top for the best views) on that tour. We will return but not until after the Olympics are long over. This shot was “tweaked” a bit for effect in PSE9. The old paper look layer just appealed to me so here you are.
