and why not,

I say … dragon

No—this isn’t one of those ‘homilies’ filled with adenoidal angst and semi-sage advice. It’s a simple observation of how to make those wee snaps a little bigger. (Oxymoron? Hah—I’ve been called worse) (and by experts~!).


may well have been dreaming while Dawn’s left hand was in the sky—but he got up earlier than I do these days; anyway, I prefer to do my dreaming whilst sitting in Mooch café in town peering at a pair of distant eyes peering back at me.

Take a look below and you’ll catch my drift …

No … I favour Olympus but my wee Canon can get me in a helluva lot closer. However, Miss Canon was at home and I wuz here … but all is never lost to a determined idiot; feast your eyes on this

—it still amazes me what can be achieved with a mediocre zoom and a several updates on an out-of-date* Macintosh computer.

You simply need to zoom in on your selected image (or bit thereof) and screenshot**  the part you want. Easy-peasey~!


* I’ll never (! ! !) update my Operating System again (since that time Apple ‘upgraded’ and made a helluva lot of my archives totally inaccessible. Apple can go lick hedgehogs … sharp hedgehogs, hedgehogs with very pointy prickles).

**  Command-shift-4, and drag.

      1. No … we rarely watch anything these days but our own favourites on Dvd (‘Peter Rabbit’ springs to mind). The latest animated is pure genius.

      2. Hahaha! Yes, CGI these days are able to do phenomenal things… like create very Pretty Boy posters for photographers fiddling around with their zoom-lenses. 😉 😛
