You know the way one tends to forget where certain pictures were taken? Or one collects brochures and booklets which get lost by the time one wants to put together a slide show? Or one tries to memorise all the interesting bits, but by the time one wants to relate them, memory has failed?

 It doesn’t help much to go Googling if one can no longer remember the name of the place.

 No, here is the perfect answer, born of laziness. Many touristy places, particularly in UK, have these handy little signboards which give useful potted pictures of what one is looking at.

 Taking pictures of the potted pictures isn’t at all potty as something to be seen to picture the scene.

 Look at how much information I can add to my slides from these Buckler’s Hard pix (where Victory was built, Esmerelda) if they arrive safely back from overseas. Fortunately, I quickly took them on my cellphone camera to save time, so these actually came back with me.

    That is a GOOD idea and one I shall steal if I ever go travelling.

    Any sign of your camera yet?
