Calais Picspam

I forgot to post my pics of my trip to Calais with calove and hesadevil due to alll the excitement of the explosion.

You wouldn't think Calais had much to take pics of, but you'd be wrong!



We went to the beach...

Big looming tower. Bet they threw miscreants from it. Eek!

Good times were had. I must make a moment to say thanks to hesadevil and calove for their generosity. People have been very kind to me this Christmas, I'm a little overwhelmed.

These are beautiful pictures! I could never take anything that would turn out like that.

(Cold moody arty beach was my fave -- closely followed by calove's artwork)

Thanks for sharing.

>>>Cold moody arty beach was my fave

Hee. You don't know how many different ways I took that to get it to work!

Love the moody beach pics, did some this Christmas. Must sort those out, but all my horizons slope, weird huh? Must be the camera...

That's what Paint Shop Pro is for. ;)

We have photo impact and it's rubbish:(

Ah yes. I remember that.

Might be worth looking for a free download maybe?

I certainly don't know that you can get it on bittorrent....


::whistles innocently::

Ah, research sometime then ...

Good night, I'm doing knackered this evening, been wrestling with the WIP, as in quit with the exposition already, just did a chp of that...it's getting better...it couldn't get much bloody worse!

I have my WIP open too, but somehow organising fonts seems much more fascinating tonight.

lol, I know things are bad when the housework looks attractive, thank fully almost never get to that point.

And I missed the shiny icon, tres pretty:)

One of my Hex collection I've spent way too much time on.

Oooh, lovely pictures. :) I've not been to Calais since Darcy and I were on our honeymoon (it was an overnight stop on the way to Paris). So we never went to the beach - it seems we missed out!

Paris way more romantic than Calais definitely. You aren't missing much, you can get a beach anywhere.

Like the first pic very much. There's something about the pattern the tide is making. I see Cass's art work remains the same as ever - fixated!

And BOATS!

Glad you enjoyed Christmas. Despite my emotionally depressed state, I quite enjoyed the trip.

Well, apart from the horrendous drive through the fog on Sunday. I'm glad I stayed over, I couldn't have faced the journey back here.

I was going to post a picture of your wall, but it wasn't very interesting.

I had to post Cass' art for those who missed it, didn't I? Gotta get the priorities right!

>>Despite my emotionally depressed state, I quite enjoyed the trip.

Sometimes you just need to get away from it.

The fog was fun! What I didn't tell you was that I got horribly lost in it!

Those are pretty pictures. I bet you had a good time.

A good time was indeed had, despite worrying about whether I had a job and a home to go to when I got back. Stupid explosion.

At least you were able to get away from it for awhile and hopefully relax while you were gone.


Mmmm. Something like that.

Lovely! and the beautiful heart-shaped Christmas lights are exquisite.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share these with us. You're very generous and sweet to do so.

No, I'm not. I'm just after the adultation! ;)

Oh! What beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing. :)

Trust you to be able to make even Calais look good! (Yes, there might be a compliment in there if you look hard enough.) ;)

I live so close to Calais that I can see it on a clear day. Can't remember the last time I went there, though.

It's okay in the dark...

Yeah but so am I... ;P

What a photographic beach! Those Christmas lights are quite something, eh? They are sort of stunning, but I'm not sure whether I mean stunningly wonderful, or whether I mean they have left me stunned!

Only you know the answer to that. They were lovely though, in a very French way. I can't see Hemel coucil smothering the town in hearts.

I had to make sure I kept the ferries out of shot.

Blimey! Was it really that pretty? I was clearly shaking too much from the arctic winds to appreciate it.

No - very lovely the beach and sky were too, and fab photos to do it justice.

Happy days. We must do it again - if you feel it's safe to leave the Homeland for five minutes without it blowing up. You must learn to control your alter ego.

She wouldn't be nearly as much fun then.

Loverly pictures. I've been playing around with creating patterns in Paint Shop Pro. Would you mind if I try lifting some patterns off these? Unfortunately, most of the ones I've done so far get pixelated or something when I save them. I haven't figured out what is causing it. This are very high quality so perhaps they'll work.

I'll have to try using them as brushes rather than patterns - maybe that's the secret.

By the way *heaps adulation upon your lofty brow for capturing and releasing these works of beauty for our admiration*

Snort.

Go ahead. Let me know if you need higher res ones and I'll send you originals, these have been re-sized and compressed.

Thank you. I'm not sure how well it will work but that's the fun with experimenting!

That's a very pretty harbor and an impressive tower but calove's artwork was the best thing there. I must say that it did indeed look cold and moody on that beach.

Well, if it isn't some photos that look like they should be in a Calais coffee-table book. :)

I like the boats one a lot, which is strange considering how much I hate boats in general...

They actually make Calais look like a proper destination.

I hate boats too.

Yes, and not just a place of many cash-and-carries.

Pretty! I can't take pics like that. THey always end up all fuzzy and it's just not cool to carry around a tripod so yeah. Glad you girls had fun over the holidays!

I try to lean on things to steady the camera, but believe me, most of them are still fuzzy.
