    Bad news: this computerphobic, or rather internetforumphobic sister of mine (uh-oh, if she reads this, I'll be in trouble!) did NOT post her digital photos of Day 2 on Saturday, like she had promised... what methods of tele-torture do you people know? What can I do to her now?

    Good news: her films were back on Saturday, I phoned her up to ask, and she sent a parcel my way this morning. By tomorrow around 11 a.m. it should have arrived, then I can start scanning... and I am SURE, absolutely POSITIVE, that there are a good many really, really good ones among them!

    (She never ordered a CD right with the prints, says €3,99 per CD with 6 films is way too expensive, over €20.- extra? No. Her sister can better scan the lot for her - phew! ;). But I will do so! I will! :D)

    Still no photos of Day 2 here, either :(

    Though there is some good in that. If my Christiane does not come here, she cannot find this sentence about her being an "internetforumphobic sister" ;)...

    Sorry, I am having a monologue with myself in this thread, or so it seems, but:

    The phonecall has come.
    The one in which Christiane is asking me to please! put up the remaining unposted photos in her stead. She says that with her work going (she's in counselling - alcohol abuse primarily - I do understand why that can lead to overtime, work that you take home with you in your head and all that!) she can't be sure she's back on before the weekend, and these threads are getting "cold", sort of (though we must keep them alive till Scurra's back from Switzerland!!!!), so that is why.

    So take this and the following posts as something that has been sent in by

    In Thaxted

    Policemen and the official photographer of the bicycle race that went through Thaxted when Vixenta, Hertz, Christiane and I were there in the morning - and we just couldn't have that HUGE lens be there "unchallenged" (i.e. unphotographed :)).

    [​IMG]
    Church in Thaxted with the wide-angle lens.

    What is the technical term for the fact that the sides of buildings seem to be falling into the picture when you use a wide-angle lens?

    "Hey, what is that for? I might be sitting on a cross, but am I a crow? Well, am I? Am I?"

    JonMikal should take a close look at this one, he might as yet recognise this one as a crow! ;)

    There is always something to be discussed! Always!

    Christiane called this one "At Work" ;).

    All these are scans from her prints.
    She did post her digital photos from Thaxted before, didn't she... Boy, there are so many photos up about our Meet-Up by now... I am even getting confused with OURS, i.e. Christiane's and mine! :roll:

    I wonder if anyone's still coming to really LOOK at these threads? Are we milking them to death here?

    In Finchingfield

    A slightly different take on the mill and the white houses, but I can tell you that also Christiane has taken one photo of the very typical view of this part of the village (cf. Hertz's photo for that very view)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    I am sure Christiane likes this one because of the wires leading to the houses... At least I like it for that fact! :)

    [​IMG]

    She captioned this one with "'So many crosses! And not ONE crow in sight???' - Crow-hunters."

    [​IMG]
    One that must not miss in our collection: Christiane's take at the man who clipped his hedge :D

    [​IMG]
    And another different approach at the white windmill of Finchingfield

    And what would our visit to this place have been without this little treasure?

    My, these are getting too many. Couple more of our second visit to Thaxted (WITH Scurra!) and of our going home later (must prepare lunch...).

    I hope some still come and enjoy these !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    yeah thanks Corinna for sharing them! I was curious what you were doing during the Day 2. and there's no better evidence than pictures, isn't it? :D
