|Sunset from Castlette DeVice's doorstep.|
Nothing to do with this post - I just like the
colours and needed a header image.
However, I'm not going to let the walking take over. Besides, it'll be getting warm soon, then I certainly won't be intentionally walking anywhere and getting hot and bothered as a result. But before the walking bits dry up (until Autumn/Winter, I expect), I'm toying with the idea of constructing some sort of map to show where I've been (as inspired by Spike's various maps, and Hound's recent psychogeographical map). I've had a couple of goes at it so far, but don't really know where I'm going with them as I'm not quite sure what I want them to show.
Anyway, here they are (and I'll warn you now: the first one is absolutely enormous, so you might have to open it in a new window or something so you can magnify it):
|If you clicked it: See! I told you it was big!|
|No, I didn't fly Broom high enough to take this photo - I'm not bloody stupid!|
This one is much more managable. It's based on Googlemaps' satellite view hence all the lovely green. However, because of that, I couldn't decide what colour/s to mark out my walks, so I just went for plain old white.
I quite like having a map to show where I've been, but as I mentioned before, I'm not exactly sure what I want them to show. I've toyed with the idea of adding some sort of marker everytime I've taken a photo so you can see where it was taken, but that seems like a logistical nightmare now. I've also thought about having an individual map for each walk (in which I can show where photos were taken), which might be easier? As I can't really decide, I'm going to turn it over to you.
What would you like to see? What would make it easier for you to work out what's what, and which way I went? More importantly, do you even care?
