Porto in July 2014: a few more photos

During a day of almost continuous rain in Newtonmore (thanks I suspect to the lasting influence of Hurricane Bertha), I've made another attempt to get on top of sorting out photos. This time deleting photos from camera memory cards. I know I should keep on top of deleting photos once I have downloaded them. Unfortunately onceyou let this slip it takes a long time to check that all the photos on the card have been downloaded. So here is a small additional selection from our visit to Porto in July.

As you know, Jim, some cameras now harbour 2 memory cards, which you can use in parallel rather than in series. The second then becomes a back-up of the first one. I have the habit of erasing everything from the first one as soon as I have downloaded it, and only get rid of the pictures on the second after a few days, thus enabling me to sort out what I really need, and making yet another safe copy of it.

Luc. None of my cameras has this facility, so I download soon after I have taken them but got behind with deleting.
