The Lorna Doone - The Baton Passes On



Of course, an even greater delight of blogging is the way that once someone has taken up the relay baton, others come forward to join the team. So today I received an e-mail from one of my all-time favourite bloggers, Philip van Bergan (of The Thoughts Of Chairman Bill). His e-mail went as follows:

"Alan - would you believe it? My dad was actually there as well and also took a photo, which I have scanned.  Seems your copy has been digitally manipulated to remove the evidence. Probably something to do with the safety of our boys in the Sudan".

So, before we move on, was anyone else's' mother or father stood on that dockside taking a photograph of the Lorna Doone? And what on earth will we find in their photographs?

How wonderful! Blogging is a matter of serendipity in many instances, don't you think?

Interesting! Who would have thought, long ago, that so much could be done to manipulate photographs.

Happy Christmas to you and your family. 'Hope it isn't a white one,' she says laughing.

How is it that we can change history by the stroke of a key? At what point will our brain be lost in what we perceive is real? The water in all the pis is the same. What fun!
