ABC Wednesday - H

Help!!!!! I've tried every which way to make Blogger upload this photo the right way round but it won't!!!! Any suggestions?

Okay, deep breath. Slowly, okay, I'll calm down in a minute.

I chose - very appropriately as it's turned out - Help as my Beatles record for this week. This sculpture, called Breathing at sea, was commissioned by Mumbles Community Council in tribute to the local lifeboatmen who voluntarily man the lifeboat, and risk their lives to go to the help of others.

The sculpture by Hideo Furuta (not Futura as I've put on the photo but cannot even begin to try and change now) is meant to encompass both anguish and hope.

To take part in ABC Wednesday, go here.

Oh I wish I could "Help" you cuz it's obvious you "need somebody" and "not just anybody" someone who does blogger not wordpress like me...I know you need someone to HE e elp!"
Great H choice Liz...
"when I was younger so much younger than today" I probably could have helped. but now my independence seems to vanish in the haze...

l think you have to rotate it in your image /photo software first, resave it then reupload it...not sure that help any..


Thought Harvey would be todays H!!

I did my gymnastic as I turned my head down to see your photo! It's funny to put it like this! Don't touch it!

Reader Wil said...

It's a good H for Help but also for Hope and I agree with Ellen and her Beatle song: Help you need somebody!

I had that problem some time ago and it was terribly frustrating.

Never got a real solution.

I resorted to hosting the photo on my website and accessing the photo there rather than the one loaded up to blogger.

If you don't have the option of hosting it elsewhere try - clearing the photo out of the picasso-album.

Alter the image on your computer in a very subtle way (add a border and then chop it off) save with quite a different name - upload it into a NEW post and then copy/paste the text of the old post into the new one and post that instead.

It looks good anyway.

It makes the point!

I love it the way it is, makes a change

Can't you put the picture in windows or Microsoft picture manager and turn it around and then upload that. It is an interesting picture and should be turned around.

I only have one "H" for my post today. I hope you like it. I put it on Canon Pixels

Lovely photo :-)

PS: I hate blogger and photos, that is why I put most of mine on flickr and link ;-)

Great post Liz, and your photo is good in spite of the odd angle.

I've never had any trouble with Blogger and photos - until yesterday! Maybe they're having a daft day or two.

Hurray for Gerald for Helping you out of your predicament.
And imagine using the Beatles tune of "Help."
Clever.

'Help' sounds a very suitable song for you to Blog by!

babooshka said...

Love how you tie them into a Beatles song. I had the smae photo issues.

Neva said...

How frustrating is that? Too funny...but still very nice for an H.
