    Bob decided that he would document his retracing of his ancestor's travels to Brobdingnag.

    I didn't know that. I recall that he studied (Trinity) and lived part of his later life in Dublin. A brilliant satirist, sadly poorly remembered these days.

    A dusting of snow on the cave hill. 212624299-3ad233d9-4e1e-4988-a727-d3ab87168284.
    As he lay in his sick bed , the view out of his window was of the cavehill overlooking Belfast. It reminded him of a sleeping giant in repose, and the inspiration for Gullivers travels.

    Anything more than 500 yards from the car just isn't photogenic.

    (A quote attributed to Edward Weston and later his son Brett, who didn't like carrying their large cameras.)
