It has been a long time since I ventured to Chatham as I don’t really have any need to go there. It might prove a potentially interesting place for a proper wander sometime tho.
The first spider (shot) of 2008.
Whilst waiting for the Circle Line train it seemed sensible to fire off a couple of shots. I was careful not to be ‘covert’ so that I would avoid arrest. Damn this country and the hysteria about using an SLR in public. Contrary to popular* belief this country is NOT full of terrorists and paedophiles walking around with ‘pro’ cameras taking photos of buildings and children. I am pretty sure your average terrorist already has blue prints for buildings (not photos) and, sorry to say it, but your average child molester doesn’t get off on taking random pics of children in public!

I know this film shooter. Odd chap. Anyway, it is his birthday and he loves pigeons and one day hopes to own many hundreds. Happy Birthday.
I may well have taken another bee shot by now, but this was the first one of 2008, taken a couple of weeks ago (the day before it snowed here). I sincerely hope that this summer is good as I plan to use the D200 in some sort of wild macro frenzy. I can hear the rain already.
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that, whilst at Hever Castle, I had some rather lush Carrot Cake. This is that very cake.
Since I now have a fish eye lens and occasionally travel to the Gherkin for work purposes, it seemed only fair to combine the two. Love it or hate it, it is an architectural marvel and the loos are nice too.
I am a little addicted to the new fisheye lens, but damn it is fun. Saltwood Church, where my Grandad is buried. I like to go see him every now and then.
The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds. It is also referred to as Common Barn Owl, to distinguish it from other species in the barn owl family Tytonidae, any one of which may be called a barn owl. Tytonidae is one of the two groups of owls, the other being the typical owls Strigidae.
I like them. They is pretty.
