I was fiddling with my mobile phone and exploring the options I didn't know I had, 
when I noticed a panorama mode,  so I played some more...
the first  was of the extended view of the Castle opposite my work. 
I have posted a view of the Castle from the museum before, 
but never quite like this...

... and this is the view from behind the picture above.
On driving home, well l know it appears lazy and unecofriendly but it was pouring today!!
Anyway this is the skyline view in panorama mode!

from left The Cathedral then the Castle and then Dixons Chimney
 (which is l believe the tallest mill chimney still standing in Europe, can that be right?)

this is normal mode and you can just make out the green of the cricket ground through the trees,

Not bad for a mobile phone eh?

  1. Uhhhhh, those are better than my first digital camera could have done and I just replaced that one last year!!! Gorgeous!

  2. I agree! Those photos are incredible... I have skills, Lady!

  3. Hrumph. My phone doesn't have a panorama mode. :(

  4. That's awesome! I'm going to check out my camera and my mobile to see if I have that feature. :D

  5. These are from your camera phone!?! Amazing! Love them all!

  6. Yes - those ARE impressive for a phone!! Holy cow - nice job!

  7. Wow, panorama opens up a whole new world, doesn't it?
    Nicely done.

  8. Wow, those are much better photos than my phone takes.

  9. Seriously good work with your phone.

  10. Those are good photos..I am just trying to learn how to text on my phone..LOL..

  11. Not bad at all! Wow! That's pretty darn amazing for a camera phone. Panorama is awesome.

  12. Wow, you've got quite the view!! Beautiful stuff! My phone barely has a camera, much less panorama mode!!

  13. That was a brilliant thing to be able to do on a mobile phone.
    Lovely pictures and scenery! Good for you.

  14. wow, I want to know which phone you have! It's obviously not mine.

  15. for your info..

    Sony Ericsson K770i

    free on contract £15 per month not bad eh..

  16. Lovely photos. I am afraid my phone does not have panorama mode or any other mode for that matter. It just takes phone calls and even that is a bit hit and miss!!

  17. Lovely Sazzie,and from your PHONE!!!
    Thanks for fixing my first SWF, another tutorial I think. At this rate you'd better add another day.

  18. Wow! Those are really impressive photos! I can't help but wonder what will be the next step for the mobile phone. It's a bit of a scary thought.

  19. Those are some great pictures especially for a cell phone.

  20. These are very pretty pictures! :)

  21. That looks just lovely. It must help the mental health to work near such a picturesque scene.

  22. suldog- mental health! well thats not for me to say maybe, but it doesnt hurt put it that blog title says it all really...ask me in another 5 years LOL

  23. I wonder if we have the same type of phone? Mine does the same thing and I love to layer photos of people with the panorama mode. So fun to play with.

    Great pictures!

  24. Wow what great pictures, you have a beautiful view.

  25. Wow, a mobile phone that has pan mode? Awesome! I love it!

  26. That's amazing from a phone!

    How's your Bah humbug?!

  27. I don't take pictures, I tend to break cameras....and as Americans don't usually have castles across form their work place, I am so jealous! Even though we didn't live terrible far (a few miles)from Windsor Castle, I couldn't see it from the upstairs window, more's the pity! Lovely photo...lucky girl!
    added you to my blogrole today...I do love your blog!

    Stunning. It makes a Brit obsessed American like myself pea green with envy. So much history RIGHT THERE.

  29. Amazing photos, and beautiful landscape. Puts what I take with my digital camera to shame.

  30. Great photos - checking my phone now to see if it can do that lol

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
