One of my planned purchases whilst in the UK was a new laptop computer to replace my ageing 5-year old model in China. I've spent the last week or two loading on the software I need and trying to figure out the new Windows 7 operation system (what a mess!). My parents left for a 5 day holiday trip to Torquay this morning, however, which gives me the chance to hijack Dad's internet connection for a few days and get all the updates I need downloaded from the internet.
One fun site which I've discovered is http://tiltshiftmaker.com which can take normal photos and then, using various defocussing techniques,
make them look like model toys. Some photos I took in XiJiang, really look dinky! Bear in mind these are photos of real, full-sized houses and bridges.
