I was on an open top bus yesterday and thought i would take a couple of photos.
Was a bit of a breeze, expected on the coast.

First Pic, all was well

It was a bit hard taking pics as with moving it was hard to get angle right, as seen by this.

Then came the lighthouse pic i wanted, was too close and couldnt get the angle right as was turning a corner but was going to take a few quicky hoping one was going to be a decent pic.
However, i only managed this one because i had to rest my hand on the edge of the bus and as my finger took the photo, with the help of the bus turning a corner and a bit bumpy, my phone decides to leave my hands and go crashing to the ground below ending up in several pieces.
Had to run downstairs and ask driver if he would stop.
Couldnt find it at first, told the driver he could carry on without me but he said he would wait which was good of him.

Found the back cover of the phone, was still in one piece surprisingly as it had tyre marks on it.
Battery was nearby and then found the phone.
Yep, damaged screen but was still working when i put it back together thank god.
And all for this crappy picture lol.

New product idea JD - hand straps for phones just like for the digital cameras. Only the eyelet missing, maybe some phone maker reads this thread :D :clap:

My own fault really.
Shouldnt go out drinking the night before i go travelling.
Probably could have kept hold of the phone better if i wasnt so knackered, but the bumps didnt help lol

Ah, I think I know why. The first picture looks suspiciously like a MOD listening post. Someone didn't like you taking photos of it and 'zapped' your phone with an electromagnetic pulse when they saw you had it positioned over the rail of the bus. As they planned it, it fell onto the road and was destroyed. Then the guy in the lighthouse with the 'zapper' returned back to his screen and Raping Rhino.:cool:

Agreed...You should be proud of that picture! Just think how hard some
photographer would have to work to get that angle?

Actually it is a great photo....You should frame it!

Got a nice pic of the bay at the weekend.
Not bad to say it was a miserable but dry grey day.

That is a great picture. I wish it was clearer and I could do wonder with it. You obviously like taking pictures so go buy yourself a real camera.. It's a great hobby and much more rewarding than gambling:D
Ok, it is possible to have both as a hobby. I do!
