Recent Aimless Wanderings

Recent Aimless Wanderings

I was just browsing through my photos folder and thought I’d post some random shots from the collection. These are just my ‘happy snappy’ efforts taken in idle moments while wandering aimlessly about. If you want to see top-class photos, you need to check Neil’s images on Facebook. We used to share more to our Symi Dream page there, but since Facebook has introduced a new page/profile system, it’s no longer easy to cross-post. I mean, if Neil added some photos, I used to be able to ‘share to your page’ in two clicks, ditto if I saw something from a page I belong to as me, which would help that page and mine if I shared it. Now, working on the laptop, you can’t just click and share; you have to save that URL, go into your page profile and make a new post. I can’t auto-share from the blog to FB either, and if I try and share a personal post to any of my pages when using my phone… Well, forget it. I don’t know why they’ve done this, but I assume it will have something to do with them making money and to be honest, it puts me off even having a page on FB.

Anyway, that’s why you may not see so much shared content on the Symi Dream page anymore. I have, of course, written a strongly worded letter to The Times (and Facebook) about this, but, also, of course, it will make no difference at all. Moan over with, here are some random shots from my recent aimless wanderings.
