1658





I made and uploaded this photo with my phone when I was skating. Don't worry, I have eaten a lot of chocolate biscuits since, I am not getting skinnier.

The quality of the photo is a bit disappointing. This is the same photo made with my camera.




Today: second time skating this year.

First bumblebee - that should probably make me happy but instead it scared the crap out of me it was huge like a helicopter and it was dragging something long and white, if it was an insect protest slogan of some sort I did not stop to look what it read, insects probably use writing that humans can't comprehend anyway, I bet they write in pollen or something unimaginable, anyway, it didn't even occur to me to take a picture and blog it. I just wanted it out, asap. I had to get real close to it in order to open the window and help it to get out, but my fear of the monster made me overcome my fear of it, if you know what I mean.

And: I got a new cap for the side mirror of my car. It got knocked off by a passing driver over a year ago, and had to be replaced now to pass the motor vehicle inspection. A blue one would have had to be ordered and cost 150 Euro, an unpainted one (base grey) would be 20 Euro ... I chose the base grey, but then they found me a redundant nice white painted one instead. The paint should have cost extra but instead they gave me a discount because it was the wrong colour. Actually I love it and plan to get a red one for the right hand side.

I like those views. Of course the photo made with the phone has a low resolution, maybe 1 or 2 megapixels, and therefore a lower quality.
Have a nice evening!

Enjoy that mirror! That's a wonderful view. I have never succeeded at a photo with my phone. I am useless that way. So I appreciate what you did.

What kind of skating?

Wow that is really cheap for a car mirror, lucky you. lol

I say go with fluo, maybe people won't knock them off (although, they might steal them)

These mobiles will replace cameras soon.
Thanks (?) to technology!
