I’m in London, so I did some shopping last night. What’s great about being in a city you know, is that the hassle of finding things goes away.  I had a free couple of hours this morning and my plan was simple… To step out of the hotel, and go to the first gallery/museum/show that appeared on the side of a bus.

With a slightly better understanding of the focusing capability on my camera, I was able to achieve the above shot.  It was a best of twenty which is a significant improvement especially considering the motion of the horse – both the obvious rotation and the not-so-obvious up-and-down movement.

Our day started with a tube journey into Central London, followed by a walk by the Thames. Then we watched street performers near the Shell building (one named Richard was particularly good), and went on to see London through her Eye.  For lunch, we took the bus to Wigmore Street’s Wagamama (it’s bigger than the Picadilly one) – and had ice cream (99) just prior to taking the tube home.

The day was very much like this mary go round.  Nothing particularly new, nothing original, but loads of fun.

 

I recently joined an online Kuwaiti forum dedicated to Aviation.  Nice group of people, mostly captains I think.  The website is rich with information on aviation and links.  Photos and videos of airplanes and airports, and much more.  Best of all, in my opinion, is access to a softward that allows you to see planes over Kuwait… LIVE!  You have to qualify for access by registering and writing in the forum.  

It’s such a small world, I found out that the founder is the brother of an old friend.

I posted some of my old photographs at their forum, and while searching for images I came across this one. I took this earlier this summer just before landing at Heathrow.  If you look carefully, you can almost see the London Eye in full.  Almost direclty opposite are the houses of parliament which are visible in the larger versions.

Watching London go by….
