A fantastic weekend. Great to hook up with friends old & new (some i hadn't seen in 17 years - Hi Jayne!). Shame not to see any mobloggers (speaking of which, apologies to alfie. i was vodka-fuelled and didn't realise it was you texting!), but there were certainly plenty of happy-snappers with their cameras out.

Good to queue with Femi-Fem and dance some boog' with Sugapop and my sister. Thanks to Norman for the grooves.

Last picture by Andy, taken on his useless iPhone, but his timing was impeccable :)

The carnival spirit well and truly captured there, Nige. I'm a bit worried about that early jump, though... I mean - accessories?

Believe it or not, it was a dull, overcast day in England, Mara, yes!

Thanks Caine & 095. It was a lot of fun. I'm still smiling...

Hari, cheers! I know! Had to be done though.

Thanks for the highlight :)

I knew the bum shot would be one of yours from the thumbnail. I like the one of the little boy with the watermelon best...and the jump.

On that subject, when does jumping resume. I seem to have started already and was feeling a little lonely until I saw yours.

Really enjoyed looking through these - cheered me up no end on my non-bank holiday!I like that last shot, and the first and fourth are great too.

nige says:

Heh, thanks!

The watermelon kid was my fave too, OJ. Do i really take that many shots of butts though? I'd better watch that from now on. It's certainly not intentional!

Jumping resumes quite soon, I believe. Must check my book ; )

I forgot you were in Scotland, Jun. No BH for you :(

No, you don't Nige. I don't know. Something about the colour and composition (and the fact I knew you were going to the carnival...)

Looks like you had a blast Nige!
Did you not get involved in the big fight at the end? Hi-viz vest on, "war correspondent" mode?
The HL'd shot is just fab, but shouldn't it have been the last one in the series?
The bottom-shot?
