Really nice Spritzhenry, will it damage the roof?

3 Oct, 2009

 

Nooooo....no probs! The strands were a lot longer - but my husband got fed up with them brushing his head, so he cut them shorter! Boo!!

3 Oct, 2009

 

Beautiful, but dare I say, I love your garage more.

3 Oct, 2009

 

My husband considers it HIS territory, Dawn! lol.

3 Oct, 2009

 

Hmmmm, my husband is the same with ours Spritz. That's fine, we have the garden and they have the garage, fair play. lol

3 Oct, 2009

 

True....but he does have a workshop as well - he's very lucky!

Beautiful colour reminds me of the story I was told as a child at 5 of the garage that was covered in Nastutiums on a sunny day, from a distance it looked as though it was on fire, so they called the fire brigade and when they arived they found it was the glow of the nastutiums which were glowing with colour with the sun on them, made it look as though the garage was on fire.

Morgana - please don't dial 999 about our roof! LOL.

Lovely fiery Autumnal colour.

I love my vines! Especially at this time of year!

4 Oct, 2009

 

That is beautiful, I am now going to take a photo of mine.........will be back later!!!

4 Oct, 2009

 

Absolutely lovely Barbara......

Went out, got carried away, but, did take tthe photo but the file is too big, will try tomorrow on another setting.
Your shed is far too lovely to cover!!

4 Oct, 2009

 

Shed? shed?? That's the garage, Dd!! My husband woud have a fit if he heard you call it a shed! LOL.

Can you crop the photo to get it loaded?

4 Oct, 2009

 

It looks stunning..........

4 Oct, 2009

 

:-))

So sorry Spritz thought it was a very posh shed!!! if you crop it it makes the file larger still.......will alter the setting on the camera, watch this space!!!

4 Oct, 2009

 

We don't 'do' posh, Dd!! Our shed is wooden and boring...lol.

I see - you had it set on better quality, did you? I did that, and the photos wouldn't load. When I cropped one, it did, though! Strange??

5 Oct, 2009

 

Tried cropping mine it made it much larger.......my photographer friend told me the more you do to a photo the larger the file becomes, so I never alter my photos if I can help it.

5 Oct, 2009

 

You should be able to resize it, DD2 - have you got a manipulate setting or similar - its usually one of the options under there, 920 x 920 should be fine.

Love this pic, its the only time I like these plants, Spritz

Bamboo have had another look at my photo,have now returned it to its original size of 2.4.....cropping had increased it to 3.2, as a rule I have no trouble unless I use the bigger lens.

6 Oct, 2009

 

What you need is an ordinary little one like mine! Haha.

( I'd like a better camera, really, I'm just jealous, Dd.)

7 Oct, 2009

 

There's a difference between cropping and resizing, though, DD2 - If you crop, you get the same number of pixels in the original photo, but in a smaller space - if you resize, it just shrinks it all.

7 Oct, 2009

 

Bamboo opened it in Photoline and did a jpeg compression,.....loaded no problem, it is now sideways on? can you tell why this has happened? I could do with a Masterclass in photography, fantastic camera rubbish owner lol

7 Oct, 2009

 

I hope that question is meant for Bamboo, Dd!!

That's why I have a non-techie camera!

7 Oct, 2009

 

Yes it was Spritz.....dont panic lol

7 Oct, 2009

 

PHEW!! Thanks!! :-))

8 Oct, 2009

 

Bamboo........found it in preview, you can adjust size and colour, still finding out how to do things on the Mac...lol

8 Oct, 2009

 

That's a stunning colour against the stonework!

11 Oct, 2009

 

I reckon you could create a beautiful painting of it, Antigone! :-))

11 Oct, 2009

 

I'd give it a good try! Never confident I can do justice to nature's excellence - if you let plants go where they will not only do they do well but they create the perfect picture themselves - even dandelions but maybe not bindweed.... although whats in a name its same as morning glory but white!

12 Oct, 2009

 

DD2 - thank heavens you've found it - I had no idea what the answer was to your "sideways" query....;-))

12 Oct, 2009

 

Lovely colour Barbara!
Virginia Creeper is a Beautiful vine, it's a shame it gets bad press, maybe it's a marmite plant! you either love it or hate it.
There is no problem as they have little sticky pads that just stick onto things, if they grow you just trim them back, job done!
