put right; correct.

Taji checking out Candi’s house keeping.

She happily rectifies any sloppiness (leftover crumbs)

she finds and cleans up for Candi.

What a Labrador!!

overcome (a difficulty or obstacle).

Some of my first posted photos were

several hundred kilobytes in size.

For example, this one is around 290 kilobytes.

 Posting images of that size would soon

use up my WordPress storage.

To surmount this problem I began using Google’s Picasa

which would export a 25 Mb file and reduce its size to

somewhere between 20 and 90 kilobytes in size.

I have opted to use RAW in the photographic sense today.

I also endeavoured to find a 25 words or less definition.

However, it’s late and all explanations were

too wordy for this time of night.

This image was shot as a JPG and is therefore

partially compressed in camera.

The  sky lacks detail and the trees are darker.

Same shot only shot as RAW

Overall colours lacking contrast, more tail in trees and sky.

I’m not an expert editor, however,

camera club colleagues, and research

state that a RAW image in not compressed.

All detail remains as shot and RAW images

can be manipulated more in editing software

such as Photoshop  and Light Room.

rude in a mean-spirited and surly way

I think that this image depicts

two young pups…

…who think that dear old Maggie was

a bit mean spirited by not sharing

her food with them.

Funnily enough neither of them

will share their food.

Hmmm!! 🙂


Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Churlish






deviating from what is normal or usual,

On a warm Florentine day we opted for

a cool drink and a few minutes rest.

When I ordered an iced-coffee

I was thinking of a tall large glass,

filled with icy-cold milk, some ice and ice-cream

with a hint of coffee taste.

My dreams were different to that which I received.

Refreshing but not what I would

call a normal iced coffee.

Then again visitors to Australia will also

receive an abnormal drink when

ordering an iced coffee.

When in Rome (or Florence, in this case)

do as the locals do because that is

half the fun of travelling.
