It’s been a bit nippy this week. I wonder if there’ll be as much snow as last year?

This was taken, as you may have guessed, at the other end of this year.
I was putting together a 2014 calendar for the AD and I realised this was the picture that got the biggest ‘oooh, I like that’.
I took this in early May, 2013. Apparently, the mound it’s on is artificial and made of chalk blocks – that’s a tough job today, but the castle was built almost 1,000 years ago. More detail.
I think this makes a nice change – I’ve taken a picture in Lewes and nothing’s on fire.
So ‘selfie’ has been awarded Word of the Year by Oxford Dictionaries*. There’s only one thing for it:
Quick n’ dirty with heavy processing. Long live the selfie!
* The dictionary on my computer disagrees.
I really must take an evening just to take some time to photograph Tower Bridge – every time I shoot it, I always seem to be in a rush to be elsewhere. This time I was on my way to meet my brother. Of course, the trains were delayed, so I had more time than I thought. Ah well.
Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast at Night
I was at the London Aquarium on Hallowe’en night (it’s a great time to go – much quieter than normal). So many watery beings to choose from – I decided to concentrate on a genus of Oreasteridae.
I wonder if, with a bit of skilful blowtorch work, meringues could be made to look like one of these…
I probably should apologise for the butt-shot, but just remember that’s its mouth too.
