Hi and thanks for visiting.
Please note that this site is no longer active. My main site is at hairy1travels.com, which includes all of the content here and much more.
Why? You May Ask
Early in 2018 I seriously considered moving my blog to wordpress.com, rather than running it as a self-hosted site. Ultimately I decided not to change. The posts here represent my tests on WordPress.com.
With a few new ideas in mind wordpress.com is still a strong possibility for other subjects, but, for now, The Travels of the Hairy 1 stays in a hosted wordpress site.
Kitesurfing, Umhlanga. Kites in the sky, but the two surfers are invisible, hidden between the waves in this at Umhlanga, near Durban, South Africa.

A view along the Leeds – Liverpool canal, at Shipley Wharf, a short walk from Saltaire. This view has probably been much the same for over a century.

Just trying an edit for a WordPress follower.
Couldn’t do too much about the blue cast, but here’s an edit which seems to work.
in XnView MP:
- Downloaded the low res shot;
- Reduced lightness, blue colour and saturation
- With the high res image I would use GIMP and mask the beak to bring up the orange. Also bring up the detail in the white area, and crop for thirds, keeping the sticks at bottom left.
And don’t forget to look at the Travels of the Hairy 1.
Christmas is close when the Christmas markets start. For us the Birmingham German Market is the big event. For 2016 we stayed over and enjoyed it. The post Birmingham German Market – Christmas Time! appeared first on Travels of the Hairy One.

Lookout for more in this space, though.
