Need a longer arm

How many goes does it take you to do a selfie? Lots, ha ha. Ooops, cut his nose off. 
Ooops, cut my head off.

Where did that shadow come from? My nose looks a bit red.

 Oh sod it, smile Rocky.

We went a walk round Alkborough Flats today, it's a wetlands area on the banks of the River Trent. Hoping to do a bit of bird spotting. Not many about, think they have all flown south for the winter. This cold weather is not very good for Rocky's arthritis at the moment, he can walk a little way, then his front leg gets a bit sore. He still wants to go out though, so the pushchair is ideal. I get a walk and exercise, he can snuggle under the blanket and feel the sun on his face. He likes the sun.

We have had a bit of snow here, but not as much as other parts, thank goodness. Most of it has melted, only a bit left on the areas that don't get the sun on it. Have a nice weekend.

  5. Apparently there is such a thing as a selfie-stick which one can use to extend the phone away in order to take the photo! They were all the rage with students at Christmas - but my kids didn't get one! No surprise there!! Lovely photos anyway xxx

  7. Ha! This made me giggle! Last year i tried the same thing on Lake Superior. My hair was in my face, i missed half of my face… I finally remembered that the wind was coming from the wrong direction; actually, i was facing the wrong direction, the wind was right. But, by then i was laughing so hard at myself i couldn't even take a picture at all!
    What a lovely day you had!

  12. I find it difficult enough to take a good photo of something that I can see, I hate to think what my attempts at a "selfie" would look like. Rocky looks like a happy little chap, but then he is on a trip out with you.
