One of the best ways to see a large city is on a bicycle.  For someone with my level of fitness, this means taking a bike onto a train then spending the day exploring, remembering of course to take regular breaks.  It was the last day before Ramadan so I had to take my chance despite the forecasted wet weather.

I was standing in the cold trying to get the right settings on my camera; and without a tripod, I had to use a flat surface nearby to keep the camera steady.  While doing all of this to get “the perfect shot”, this guy stops walking, takes out his camera, points, shoots and walks on!

When I looked at this photograph later, I really liked it.

It was time to test the high ISO capability of my camera.  This was taken last night shortly after take off from LHR.  We were high up, it was dark and partly cloudy.  The result was not perfect – but I hope you will agree it’s worth sharing.

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.

 

All those who know me will know how much London means to me.This photo summarises many of the things I love about my favourite city in the world.

….. even (especially) when it’s raining.
