Why do you go biking?

These pictures ( from Jim Bauer's blog ) sum up the feeling you get when you hop on two wheels...

I never actually owned a BMX ( though I do have a 24" MaxMax now ). The closest I got was a Raleigh Grifter ( with 3 gears! ). Way too heavy to jump with though ( that was my excuse then and it still stands! ).

The Lake District with the D90

Nothing super exciting here, just some playtime with the new D90. Some nice shots of little Immy though and I am presently surprised at how easy it is to play with the apperture and shutter speeds.

No doubt there will be many more shots to follow...watch out Flickr!


New Toy - The Nikon D90

After far too much faffing I now have a nice new Nikon D90 with a 18-105mm lens plonked on for good luck.

First impressions is that this is one sweet bit of kit. Seems ages ago that I was standing on a weirside with my Nikon FM taking pictures of kayaking competitions...nice to have a big boys camera again.

Watch this space...images to follow!


Wasted on Parisiens...

...I wonder if the British Transport Police would approve? Or would they need a busking license?

Do a search for 'Naturally 7' for more...

Everything is Amazing...

Being a bit of a sheep sharing this...but it did make me smile.

..take note 'Zeros'!

The latest Ex-Parrot Sketch?

To quote the original Monthy Python sketch...., "E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!!


Move on 30 years and there is now a funnier 'Ex' reference.... welcome to the comedy world the hilarious P4CM and their 'Ex-doingnaughtythingstoonesself' t-shirt...

Maybe I have just interpreted it wrong, but then again maybe they have?? Just a thought...
