"Hallelujah Hallelujah maybe there is a god above!" I had a stiff drink or two when i got back, showered dressed having booked a table in Fort williams best sea food restaurant, headed down the hill to the harbour area with my camera. Noticed a crowd of onlookers hanging over the harbour rails pointing shouting. Being nosey i looked found this puppy looking up silently, shouting to be rescued, nobody else was listening except the ears to my heart.

Six hours before this photo i was driving back to my hotel, (in Fort William Scotland very tired) i drove into a tight blind right bend must have fell asleep then woke up in a ditch on the side of the road, car was wrecked but thankfully i was still alive and unhurt. Went out to celebrate my good fortune and discovered someone else who needed rescueing. Thanks for your kind words.

Sammie please forgive my intrusion into your day also for what i ask! I have renamed a certain album "Brave", which i would like you to look at, i apologise because it may upset you that is not my intent. You kindly favoured one of the photos, the response from you and other VB members, inspired me to object to the cruelty of animals. VB used to do journals but i'm not sure how to do that let me know what you think. Please take in account the titles and details beneath many thanks and please forgive the subject matter. Regards Pat.

Just look at that beautiful, but sad little face :( Very heartwrenching. I can see from your other comments (on the rest of the album) that you tried to help this beautiful creature. Brought tears to my eyes and serves as a timely reminder of how cruel and careless mankind can be. A very thought provoking set of pictures.

Check out the album "Brave" which explains the seal photos, very interesting 48 hours in Fort William Scotland-Wrote my car off/ survived a car crash/ found this seal on my way out to celebrate, got arrested later for taking photos in a bar/ spent the night in a cell because of principal. Thanks for voting and a pleasure to meet you.
