Quickie! 16GB Sandisk Ultra (Class 10) SDHC Cards £7.70

without comments

Memory card prices fluctuate like crazy – especially the slower Class  4 and below cards – and at Christmas, you can’t have too many empty SD cards to hand to capture the misery… joy of everyone! :)

The Sandisk Ultra card is a good quality, fast and reliable range. The 16GB Sandisk Ultra SD card is currently available at £7.70 (check the page and look to the ‘More Buying Choices’ section at the right – as I type this, MyMemory has them at £7.70 delivered) making them cheaper than two standard, slower (Class 4) Sandisk 8GB cards.

Swanny River

I don’t really do filters and playing around with photos. I do dabble in a bit of cropping and maybe a bit of brightening but, other than that, I tend to leave well alone.

Anyway, I took this on the River Exe by Topsham and had a play around with some filters and things that, to be honest, I don’t really understand. This was the result – which I kinda like!

The end of the Peace Camp on Parliament Square

The end of the Peace Camp on Parliament Square, originally uploaded by jamesmb.

I went to London recently and had a chat with Brian Haw – his picture is elsewhere on my photostream.

He was scathing about the ‘peace camp’ that had spring up around him. It was a distraction and a mess and nothing to do with him. Today, the ‘peace camp’ lost the latest round of its eviction battle. www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-10659518

To be honest, it was a mess and badly kept and, if it was meant to be making a point, it wasn’t doing it very well.

This picture was taken outside the National Gallery in London. Perhaps one of the better ways to cool down on a hot summer day!
