Sucker for reflections and repeating geometry. Erratic uploader but always taking more pics. Now more behind than ever thanks to several recent work trips.

Currently shooting with a Panasonic DMC-TZ3, which has all the zoom I could ever need, but lacks some other refinements. It'll do until there's an affordable SLR with enormo-zoom that I can fit in my pocket; watching the Four Thirds consortium with interest ...

That's wonderful. Assume they're lashed up there in cunning matelot style such that with one swift flick of the wrist they cascade to the decks like giant rubber raindrops.

Hypoglyceamia. It's not clever, it's not grown up, it's time for my dinner...

LOL! I thought you sounded very poetic. But probably it's good if you eat ... ;)

I was looking at the knots in the rope tied around them all, and thinking "I'm no boy-scout, but I'm not actually sure that's a quick-release knot ..."

Ah, right, er, that'll be a safety measure so passengers aren't tempted to test it.
Should read, "with one swift flick of a wrist attached to a hand brandishing a sharp, bladed instrument..."

Yes, it was really nice (the islands were too). On the day we went, it had been warm but just kept getting colder and greyer ... we hired a tandem to keep warm! It was enormous fun :) Thanks for commenting!
