Today's effort was so poor (worse, even, than the cat defence number of yore) that I am too ashamed to include it here. Suffice it to say that several pints is not the best preparation for taking photos.
18th August 2004 - figures fighting from the Parthenon. None of the sculptures in the BM, be they Egyptian or Greek, Roman or Etruscan, appear to have a pen!s - is this a result of Victorian social mores?).
16th and 14th August 2004 - a cheat and a dreadful picture all in one - how marvellous. Can't get this pic beamed in an accetable format to my pda for transfer to computer... blah blah. Anyway, taken on Saturday then again today, it shows sunset over the main stage at De Montfort Hall in Leicester (ah the romance) and was taken just prior to the Super Furry Animals coming on and after The Beta Band (their penultimate concert apparently - they were superb).
No pic for 13th - travelling to Leicester, I forgot all about taking one. Must do better....
7th August 2004. This is Charm, a neighbour's hamster. I am looking after him (?) for a week. Two points: (a) his teeth need a clean (worse than that Mexican fire god's); and (b) s/he apparently bites without compunction. (a) and (b) are not, I fear, a good combination.
5th August 2004 - almost Hopperian in it's simplicity and use of light I'm sure you'll agree. Mind you, the absence of figures precludes it being the work of that American master. That and a couple of other factors.
