Weight and Stuff Report – 28 April 2013

Back up today, possibly because I had a large Subway thingy for lunch and drank a gallon or two of water while working. Yes, working on a Sunday, shock, horror, etc. Stuff had to be moved and sorted out…

But enough of that, here’s a photo. I’d passed this memorial cross once or twice, but I don’t think I’ve ever really looked at it before. It turns out to be a memorial to the Venomous[1] Venerable Bede, erected in the early 20th century.

It’s covered in engravings, images, Celtic-y patterns and the like, and this inscription, which I guess is a translation from the man himself. This is a close crop of the above image, and shows how much detail the Fujifilm X100S manages to capture.
