Punting Jam on the River Cam
  [Red light.  Green light.  RED LIGHT!  Green lightredlight!]

April 18, 2018

I was watching punters on the River Cam for a bit. It was a mix of tour groups run by a professional punter who does it all the time, and smallerl groups of people who rent (or "hire" or "let") a boat and do the punting themselves. Typically the latter group have less control. And some were having more problems going back up the river and steering and not losing their pole. While I didn't see anyone fall in (apparently that's common among both groups, I did see one boat start drifting backwards back under the bridge and then at one point one woman almost lost her pole (and her balance) and the "Oh scheisse!" was very clearly heard by all. But in the end, I guess everything worked out. Well, I assume it did, as I left to see other things.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
