flicker html5/ iframe slideshow

(updated nov 17 2016). happy to say I found this iframe code here, it works  on a flickr album. This code works on the ipad. A simple free solution for your blog or website

another test

Powered by flickr embed.another test this time using a small set of LumiĆ©re app photos from flickr with  It works well and viewable on iPad. The flickr slideshows used to work, but doesn't now. Its about time they got it together. Anyway this one is good for now

non flashy slideshow for iPad

UPDATE, Had to redo this slideshow as the previous hosting sites stopped working, as usual. So I found a great guy who worked out a embed code for Google Photos HERE It uses your Google Photos from an album and generates a nice code to embed on you Blog etc. Thank You
(Previous rubbish.)Have been browsing around to find a solution for the iPad and viewing non Flash slideshows on it, would have thought it easy by now, but lots of problems were found instead. Visual Slideshow seemed as if it would work, but wouldn't connect to Photobucket where the photos were. This one by is very easy to use, but the photos are not very big, with a lot of space around them. Not very elegant. I be looking out for something better. If anyone has a good solution lmk. These hipstamatic pics were taken at The Social music festival, using Salvador 84,Lens/Sugar Film, slightly weird. But am mainly searching for a good code.

iPad Flash Browser. See what your missing

Missing stuff on your iPad?. Annoyingly bits go missing, no flash players, pages not displaying as they should. Well I get round it with a great app. Its a flash browser app for the
 iPad. Like Safari only you get to see everything as it should be. Photon. Easy to use.
 Check it out here

Vintage Typo Errors for iPad

Who doesn't want to do their typing on a French vintage typewriter on their smart new iPad. Well me for one!! I'm a real sucker for unusual apps. It is almost impossible to use, no undo button, different keyboard layout, and small keys. But it does type on wonderful old papers with cool French graphics, and I love the sound. Yea I could be a real writer with this app, with some practise, if I had something to write. If I could write in French. If I had the time. If you want to find it

Pacha Posters Wrecked Journal

Lucy gave me a 'Wreck This Journal' few years ago, and of course haven't touched it. Its supposed to encourage you into journaling by means of simple prompts per page, like rip this page up, or stand on it, a little out of my comfort zone to be fair, but that is the point. Anyway I got a few to many Pacha prints when my laser played up, so being the same size, thought I would pimp up the journal's cover with one and some mementos from my holiday in Ibiza.  (so wish I was back, grey and rainy here:( 
I've always been a fan of the Pacha Flower Power posters, don't know who designs them but they feel very free. I collected some digital copies and put them on a Pinterest board, if you want to see.
