I hate technology. It never works properly. Today I spent the whole morning trying to get my Canon inklet to print labels onto a CD. First of all the software, which I’ve put on my laptop before wouldn’t load. So I went to Canon’s site and downloaded the correct version. Then Canon’s label software told me I didn’t have the right printer attached. I tried everything. In the end I used Photoshop Elements, which could find the printer. But the printer wouldn’t recognise the CD carrier, and when it did only printed 2/3 of what I needed. I gave up at lunchtime.
So onto my walk in the afternoon with Max. Not only did Jez not want a morning walk today, she didn’t want an afternoon one either. We managed to persuade her outside the front door, but after a quick sniff round the drive she went back inside. So it was just Max and I who went over to Canford Heath. Our walk was ok, but to say it was dark and dismal would be a bit of an understatement. The walk was enhanced considerably by the sun breaking through the dark and foreboding clouds. This is the view we had across to Poole.
And a bit later on, as the sun started to set, I got this wonderful silhouette.
But my favourite shot of all is this one.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
