can anyone guess what’s going on here ?  you’ve got to guess the two parts to win.  as a clue it was taken in central london.  the blur is thanks to me experimenting with motion blur in preparation for a different shot.  20 pence in cash for the first correct answer.

embellishing service

got anything you want embellishing ? an ill-formed anecdote or a poor excuse for not meeting a deadline at work ? they’ll sort it for you

a deliberately uneventful evening

i saw this giant foot floating around trafalgar square on the way to a reception at 11 Downing Street (nice name dropping hey?). Number 11 is where Tony Blair lives (because he did a house swap (and job swap) with Gordon Brown.

when the formal part of the event finished, i had to rush back out of downing street to a meeting at church and so i went without the free house of commons wine, and the free pint of beer given away with the london evening newspaper to celebrate saint george’s day (they know us English too wel).
it turns out i missed this fantastic record attempt in trafalgar square which i’d have seen if i’d done more adventuring before. but i did get to go to downing street and the refreshments at the church meeting were mighty fine.

a funny old day, which could have been slightly funnier. but that’s most days isn’t it ?

bladder control

these chaps were carry weed killer tanks on their backs and were studying a map – i assume working out where to go next.
the pipe across the back of the chap on the left obscurred the letter ‘d’ in weed, making it look like he was wearing some medical ‘wee control’ device.
