My World Of Giant Pants

Welcome to my world of giant underpants and other daft things. It makes a change from the incessant ‘glummy’ news.

First of all, I want to wish everyone a happy, prosperous and healthy 2020. Now then, you are probably wondering where this post is going to lead. Hopefully, by the time you’ve read it, you will feel a little happier than you did before you read it.

I Like Walking

I like to go walking whenever possible, with my wife. She goes every day, whatever the weather, but I’m not so brave and usually wait until it is at least dry. Most of our walks follow the same route, so after 12 months or so of photographing the same scenes over and over, I started to look for different ideas. Maybe photos from various angles, “Nah!!” I needed something unique.

Gimp

Thank heavens for the free photo editing software, Gimp. It’s not quite as powerful as Photoshop, but it is free and with a little imagination, you can create almost anything. With that in mind, I started taking photos of the mundane while on our little hikes. The washing line above, no one would give it a second look, so how could I make it more interesting. I know, a giant pair of men’s underpants!! It looks good to me.

There should be more Pie in Pye Corner

More Pie

It soon became a habit of taking mundane pictures and adding things to the view to make them ‘different.’ Pye Corner is the name of a small farm that we often pass. It is a beautiful place, secluded with the River Lugg passing through. What a Pye Corner photo needs is a……. pie! So I added a steaming hot chicken and mushroom pie. Sorry if you think I’ve gone mad.

Giant Slipper

Wouldn’t it be good to see a roadblock? How about one of those giant slipper boots? Just the job. The photo looks so much nicer now it has something interesting going on. Talking of slippers, how about a foot blocking up the road? Yeah, now we’re flying. This is much more interesting than the same old photos day after day of the same old bits of tarmac and fields.

The Day The Earth Stood Still

Another time, just after we had had a smattering (sorry if that’s not a real word) of snow, the robot from ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ decided to show up outside the local pub. He looked very intimidating, to say the least. Locals say to us they have never seen the things we encounter on our daily walks. Perhaps they’re not looking hard enough. I hope you enjoy these fun photos as much as I have enjoyed creating them. And of course, there are my Benchman photos which I do enjoy creating with.

Once again, many thanks to all my fellow bloggers, readers and everyone that visits this blog. A great big Happy New Year.

I'd love to hear from you

    Photo montage has definitely been a big thing recently (thinking ‘Coldwar Steve’). In my art class days it was all cutting up the pages of the Sunday Express magazine and ‘orrible smelling glue. Not many giant pants in that magazine though.

      Lol, yes, I did a bit of cut and paste back in the day. Gimp & Photoshop have made things a lot easier these days. Thank you, Bryntin, happy new year πŸ˜€

    Apart from the underpants, I think they look great by the way. You should paint them in pink though.
    Apart from the underpants, those cords you people ( I assuming you are from the US) donΒ΄t use anymore, here in Spain is the norm to see them hanging from the balconies. It was funny for my American friends that saw it. Just a new generation I guess.
    Have a great New Year and I do appreciate you taking the time to pass through my blog.

    Happy New Year! I’m enjoying your lighthearted posts: I live in Australia, and everything here has been very doom & gloom for the past few months with all of the bushfires. It really starts to weigh heavily after a while, and it’s refreshing to read something fun and normal. Thank you for following my blog back, and I hope you continue to enjoy your walks with your wife!

      Thank you, Sara. So sorry of what you and everyone else is going through at the moment in Australia. Although we see the news, it doesn’t show anything like what the real thing must be living there. Like most people on the planet, I hope it comes to an end soon. A happy new year to you and again, thank you. Best wishes for the future.
