esther took this photo of me standing in front of a projection demonstrating how autochromes work at waddesdon manor a few weeks back.  i love how the letter ‘O’ rests on my head like a comedy hat

whatever happened to all the eros

i was going to just post the picture above, but then i realised i could make another pop pun title by including a few more.  or perhaps i should have put none up and then the question would have been more relevant.  as it is, it answers itself.  oh well.

these little chaps were hiding around the church yard yesterday morning.  i suspect it was for one of the sunday clubs.

i sometimes get asked if i ever get in trouble whilst taking photos.  well, mostly i avoid confrontation as much as possible, although i did get chased off by the security guards outside the gherkin recently.

this photo had potential to be a bit more exciting.  the guy on the floor is a drunk homeless type (street embassador as i like to call them).  to his right, just out of frame were too conscious drunks, and it was them i was worried about.

assuming they hadn’t been there, i would have laid on the ground and zoomed in on the union jack of his trousers with big ben in the distance.  but i thought his friends might jump on me so i got this shot instead.

sorry about that.

not my favourite kind of shots, but i liked this little chap’s bottom – his bee-hind perhaps
