Smile for the camera! [Sep. 1st, 2015|10:27 pm]

During the roadworks on Milburngate Bridge, the council put up webcams around the city, so motorists could have advance notice of traffic jams, and make other plans. In fact the traffic was no worse than usual, which is to say not very bad in this part of town, and the local camera showed mainly empty roads. Nonetheless, we told weegoddess about it, so that she could look at Durham and feel homesick. "Wouldn't it be cool," she said, "if I were looking when you were passing, and saw you!"

Well, these things can be arranged. The roadworks are complete, and soon the cameras will be removed, so we made a date, and this evening as we were walking to the residents' association meeting with a neighbour, we stopped and waved to the camera. And weegoddess was watching, and she took a screenshot, and here it is:

From the camera on the lamppost to the council's website to weegoddess's computer in Massachusetts and back to my computer in Durham. How's that for a selfie stick?

On this occasion, I think, size does matter!

I am never bored. I have even tried to read the situationists (their hijacked comic strips, of course!) but didn't understand them - my mind does not do abstract (I will never be truly French).

Knew there had to be some practical use for all those %$^&! spycams!
