HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Friday, 30 December 2005

The average taxi rank. Istanbul, Turkey.

Thursday, 29 December 2005

Well, this is were I play catch up. After being away in the wops for the last week and my camera batteries not lasting the distance, I've had to resort to quirky photos from the past. This from Ephesus, Turkey. At least their honest!

Wednesday, 28 December 2005

I think I spoke too soon..........

Tuesday, 27 December 2005

The weather certainly came out to play this year for a little fun in the sun....ahhhh!

Monday, 26 December 2005

To wear off that tyre starting to expand around the mid drift area, time to jump on the wakeboard, all the while trying to avoid a concusion from a high speed spill!!

Sunday, 25 December 2005

After a huge day of gorging out on rottiserie lamb and slabs of chocolate, what better way to finish off Christmas dinner than with an homemade cheesecake. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

Christmas summeryness.....





Saturday, 24 December 2005

Tis the day before Christmas. My car has bleed a good deal of stuffing out of my wallet. How better to drown your sorrows than with a chilled glass of bubbles! oh yeah...

Friday, 23 December 2005

And no,......it wasn't just the wheel bearing either...............!

Thursday, 22 December 2005

When wheel bearings go wrong, horribly wrong!!!

Wednesday, 21 December 2005

The mighty Big Ben and the Houses of Parliment at Westminster.

Tuesday, 20 December 2005

Fun and merriment on the Southbank.

Monday, 19 December 2005

A law written in the time before common sense stated;
"No one shall drive a vehicle across tower bridge, carting sheep, that has a beard"
This apparently is still engraved in the statute books.....! TRUE!!!

Sunday, 18 December 2005

When the sun goes down, the city energises. Docklands at dusk.

Saturday, 17 December 2005

The Greenwich Tunnel stairwell leading under the River Thames to the north side. Oh, and a telephone box!

Friday, 16 December 2005

An evening ale in the balmy summer evening....ahhhhh!

Thursday, 15 December 2005

The 'new city', Docklands. Full of upmarket residential and commercial space, it's a growing public interpretation of what a modern London should be and feel like.

Wednesday, 14 December 2005

Not far from the Millenium Dome,the push eastward of the 'new city' emerges on a daily basis.

Tuesday, 13 December 2005

Inspired by a good friend (Jonathan), I thought I'd do a wee series of images. From the flood gates in Woolwich (above) to the Houses of Parliment at Westminter. I'm following the River Thames in the late evening, during summer.

Monday, 12 December 2005

An ant view of Piccadilly looking towards the aformentioned Circus in the very busy West End!

Sunday, 11 December 2005

Following the London theme, a fast train drawing ever closer to the city as it threads it's way through the Eastern reaches of suburbia.

Saturday, 10 December 2005

Every 90 seconds, a massive and intensly noisy metalic structure cruises 100 feet above on route for Heathrow airport. Bringing yet more underburdened antipodean wanderers to the European gateway. Enjoy!!!

Friday, 9 December 2005

On the flip side, Winter holds something of a surprise in it's mighty grip. The wonderful and some what mesmerising aura of falling snow captivates like no other. This goes out to all you souls in the Northern Hemisphere enjoying the fruits of the cooler of seasons.

Thursday, 8 December 2005

Now for a change of scene, the London Eye. And apparently, this smoggy view is as good as it gets! Gotta love the city life huh?!

Wednesday, 7 December 2005

Well, it's been a hell of a week, and with that, the lack of inspiration has continued to rear it's ugly (some might say!) head. Nothing more than a well chilled Monteith's Summer Ale and a nostaligic look back at London and all her glory, will fill the void left by hard 'yakka'. Mornington Cresent, Northern Line, The Tube.

Tuesday, 6 December 2005

The grand Eiffel Tower by night. And there ends the short but most enjoyable (yes?!) tour of Paris. Maybe more in the future....

Monday, 5 December 2005

The veritable expanse of Champs Elysees.

Sunday, 4 December 2005

The swirling, almost sick inducing, spinning teacups.

Saturday, 3 December 2005

Journey towards Euro Disney on the metro. The suspense of thrills is almost to much to bear!!

Friday, 2 December 2005

Due to a little laziness, a lack of inspiration and generaly being to busy to care, I've needed to resort to past photographs for pixelated excitment! This the Paris metro.

Thursday, 1 December 2005

Well it's been another busy day at the coalface. This image is from Jordan, on a bus journey from Amman through to Petra. Quite a surreal and eye opening experience.

Wednesday, 30 November 2005

A small teaser of what's in store for the first dip of the Summer season. Bring it on!

Tuesday, 29 November 2005

A small town in the north-east region of Greece, Alexandropolis is the gateway for travellers entering Turkey from the west.

Monday, 28 November 2005

BIG UPS (I mean HUGE) to the Kiwi's beating Australia in the tri nations rugby league clash 28 - 0. A feat that will be remebered for a long time. Also, the mighty All Blacks rounding off the Grand Slam tour with a victory over Scotland 28 - 10. Now all we need is the Black Caps to do well in the cricket.....!!! Go you good things.

Sunday, 27 November 2005

The morning after (all be it very early). A great night had by all, thanks to everyone for the superb atmosphere. Till next time.....

Saturday, 26 November 2005

A little bit of bbq finger food, then out with the big tunes to get all and sundry with their hands in the air like they just don't care.

Friday, 25 November 2005

The day before the big one, getting all necessary provisions ready and chilled!

Thursday, 24 November 2005

Another image of the sky tower. It is truly in there somewhere!

Wednesday, 23 November 2005

A little bellated guy fauks action...

Tuesday, 22 November 2005

It was about this time 3 years ago, I was standing atop San Marco bell tower, looking across the overwhelming view of Venice in all her glory. A magical place.

Monday, 21 November 2005

It's raining AGAIN!!!!!!

Sunday, 20 November 2005

After watching the 'All Blacks' beat England 23 - 19 in an early morning test match, I've been reduced to lying in the sun to recharge my weary bones.

Saturday, 19 November 2005

A perfect day for the youngsters to fang it out on the harbour in the Optimist class.

Friday, 18 November 2005

It seems the weather is slowly playing it's part in the Summer season.....just!

Thursday, 17 November 2005

In preperation of the upcoming flat warming, the party utensils are being implemented and tested. The choice of the Kingsland generation.

Wednesday, 16 November 2005

This is one of the weirdest experiences I've come across. A driverless, completly automated train speeding through the Singapore terrafirma. Hope Windows doesn't crash!
