I finally managed to get the pics from my London trip sorted. There are a couple of arty type attempts in there that have been mucked about with beyond the usual exposure, contrast, and straightening adjustments. I hope you like them. :D

Very nice Penners, The first few brought back some memories, when I worked in London my office was just down the road from St James Park so I used to go and eat my lunch by the lake there on nice days.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Mad. My first job was in Carlton House Terrace, and we could see the park from our office window.

It was an amazing sight in the autumn, when it got dark around 4pm, to see all the birds swooping around before settling down for the night.

How the hell they don't crash is beyond me.

Penners, my office is about a 10 minute walk from Tower Bridge. You could have popped in for tea and crumpets!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh lovely pics everyone!

Is that YOU Dug???? I dont think I have ever seen a pic of you before.... HOW cool is the one in the spacesuit!!!!!!!! WOW!

So.... remember how I said I was hypnotised last week... well the psych told me I was walking through a field and I was to sit on a seat and look out over a beautiful scene of fields..... etc

So you all KNOW I live in Oz... and as Shadow once put it... "snakes in thier grass palaces" abound so no way I was going to relax in OUR fields and woods....

So Penners... I called up a pic you posted here once of a gorgeous scene of fields. :D :D and the walking through the woods one was off a pic I saw on here once too. No snakes!

Arent you glad you could have been of service to me.... :D :D :D :D :D
