Ah - yes - I forgot about the deconstructed chameleon - here is the rest of it. Created by the same guy that did the badger, squirrels and rats piece. Strangely - I don't have a picture of it in its entirety - I seem to just have photographed it in bits - not sure why. The Spanish for chameleon is camaleón - not much of a remove? Yours - I.

Hola B. - I just went back and looked at the negs - ha ha - there are no more negs these days - how charmingly old fashioned of me - I mean going to Photo Mechanic and looking at the original files - I think I did it that way because it was in a very narrow street - the piece is quite big - you could not have photographed in its entirety without the picture starting to bend and distort - due to having to use a very wide lens - which I can't be doing with. That's the way I found it and photographed it - I thought it was worth looking at in detail. - yours - I.

Cubism? Fragmented images?

A very good painting of a chameleon, he /she has a good eye. Well done for capturing it. :) P.

I used to have a Cannon ultra wide lens and loved the way it distorted pictures, but not everyons cup of tea, would love to get back into photography again. Sold all my gear for my next must do thing! :) p
 
Thanks for the info Iain,perhaps they were a bad omen at the start of our walk in to our objective of the day.Three Munro’s,Ben Starav,Glas Bheinn Mhor and Beinn Nan Aighenan (three of us, three Munro’s, three mushrooms).A drench day with low lying mist and constant drizzle we did however manage to stand on the last Munro of the day.This is where it all went wrong getting back down to the bealach we proceeded to head in the wrong direction “ bloody mist,or was it the fungi ? “.Down the opposite side of the mountains we had to walk the full length of Loch Etive,now standing at the river that flows into the Loch we made the decision to wade across (waist deep) as there was a cottage on the other side and the hope of a lift back to our car or even a phone signal as I new my wife would be worried.A woman from the cottage probably couldn’t believe her eyes seeing us in the river and came over to ask if we were alright,not really was the answer.She invited us inside where we said hello to another five people sitting around a big table next to open fire.They sat us down and gave us home made pasta and a big mug of coffee,still no phone signal we got a lift back to our car (ten mins).Driving along the single track road we came across a deer that was standing in the middle of the road,did it scamper?,no,it decided that we weren’t going to get out of glen Etive so fast and proceeded to walk up the middle of the road three foot in front of the car,it decided to head into the darkness five minutes later.Driving along the A82 I eventually was able to phone my by now frantic wife to put her mind at ease.
I can’t thank those people enough for their wonderful hospitality.

PS
I forgot to bring my Satmap active 10,a navigation device that would have showed us the way in the mountains,yes I’m blaming that on the fungi too.

The great outdoors !!!

Some adventure that Pat. I think you are completely right to blame the fungi.
