Another Earplug Smart Phone Wallpaper?

Months ago – I don’t recall how many, a lot of things have happened since then – I posted an experimental Earplug Adventure wallpaper for  smart phones. I’d rather hoped that someone would download it and give it a try – just to see if I had the specs right. So now that I’ve been reminded of that chronologically distant event, I’d like to try it again – if that’s alright with you. If it works, just leave a comment in the ‘comments’ box. The same if it doesn’t, obviously. Thank you. Here’s a wallpaper featuring the scary version of Folie Krimp…

Wallpapers 578 & 579: More Truthful Autumn & Light Relief

Autumn is a glorious season in the northern hemisphere – foliage full of browns, golds, reds, etc. And brilliant sunshine too, of course. Well actually that’s not always true. In fact, in some years, it’s more than a little rare. So after snapping away during the fair weather, I thought I’d put on my mack and disport in soggier climes. This is the more truthful Autumn…

But when the sun does shine…

…it is a joy to hold a camera.

Earplug Adventures Wallpaper 70: A Ghastly Communication.

In this scene from ‘The Time Tamperer volume 2‘, Magnuss and Hair-Trigger receive a video call from the future. Unfortunately it’s not good news from Cushions Smethwyke:  apparently time travel has become impossible, and they’re now stuck in their own past. “Oh shit,” or words to that affect, springs to mind.

Wallpaper 571: Field Scabious in Divine Light

After the funeral of my wife of Thirty-eight years, I decided to spend the following bright and blustery morning looking for one of her favourite wild flowers to photograph. It’s not really the time of the year for the little bloom, but recent excellent late summer weather had me hopeful. So, taking myself to open chalky downland I began my search. There were a few there, but they were scrawny, ill-fed, and barely recognizable. I was about to give up, when a shaft of light suddenly burst through a dense hedgerow – to reveal the very item I sought, waving back and forth in the stiff breeze. Divine light? I like to think so. Look…


Smart Phone Wallpaper Test: When Bathroom Walls Close In

I found a blog in which the owner gave away wallpapers for smart phones. I thought: “Neat”, so duly downloaded one to test its properties – those being 26mp resolution, and sized at 473 x 1024 pixels. I then duplicated those dimensions with an Earplug Adventure picture. As a Mark One, it kind of worked, but will need tweaking. But just as a test – should you own a smart phone of course – could you download the following picture, to see if it fits and is of acceptable quality? That would be very useful. If it works, I’ll do some more – hopefully better.
