May Gallery

Here are some of your shy and blushing red shots- first two very different ones from Stephen Knight and Leslie Duncan:

Stephen’s picture, one of the very few actually depicting shyness, is of a shy rocky face – he says it is a woman, I am not so sure – off the Lookout headland – you need to get the light right on your computer to see it properly – worth it as it is a goody.

And for something completely different, this, from Leslie Duncan, is of her husband, Ian, taken in India:

And here are a few more with thanks to everyone for sending them in:

These are all from Alison Shadbolt, taken in Bermuda:

Shy Turtles – no, we can’t see them either!

And this came from Pat Kaye:

And a final one from Leslie, also taken in India:

The next theme is buds, budding (as in the darling buds of May) or buddies, or even at a pinch a buddleia – please save your pictures as Jpgs (see how below if you don’t know) and send to us using this link: click here marking your email “June Gallery.”

Saving as jpgs:

You should be able to do this as you save your photographs from your camera to your computer photograph files.  But if not, there are several free on line programmes that can do it for you.  Or you can use a very useful (free) programme called Gimp.  And another, called Paint, can do all sorts of other useful things with your pictures, like adapting the colour, shape, size.

What we cannot use is photographs that are embedded in the body copy of your email.  They must be jpg attachments.

Naming your photographs:

Try and do this if you can – it really is easy and is extremely helpful to me as the last thing I want to do is credit someone else with your pictures!  When you have your jpg ready, before you pick it up to send, right click on it and you should find an option to “rename” – type over what is there with your name and picture subject.
