Pisa I

This the Arno River in Pisa, Italy. Unfortunately I have no 'good' pictures of the famous leaning tower, so this will remain as quite possibly my only photo from Pisa. [Taken: 13th June 2007]

Rhodes IV

Well here is my first "wildlife" photo. There really wasn't any intention of taking any arty shots (as you can see), I just thought the donkeys looked slightly funny! Maybe if I make this picture back and white then it might look professional (taken: 4th July 2006).

Tuesday, 13 May 2008

Berlin II

0019 - Germany, BerlinI took this photo at what remains of the infamous Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin. I believe this isn't the original sign, but still remains an important landmark in the history of Berlin (taken: 7th June 2006).

British GP 2007 II

0018 - England, SilverstoneThese are the famous Red Arrows (minus one plane) performing at the British GP 2007. I find it amazing how precise their manoeuvres are, especially as such fast speeds (taken: 8th July 2007).

Amsterdam I

Here's one from Amsterdam showing the famous multi-story bike storage thing. (taken on 6th June 2007). I'm amazed people can actually remember where they left their bike.

Sunday, 4 May 2008

Bratislava I

0010 - Slovakia, BratislavaHere's the view from the castle in Bratislava on the 11th June 2006. Bratislava is wonderfully unspoilt city and I'm sure I'll post some more from this beautiful city in weeks to come.

Saturday, 3 May 2008

London I

0009 - England, LondonThis is a night shot of the Tower of London (taken on 11th March 2006). I used a long exposure to ensure the image came out, and in the process inadvertently gained the red tint to the photo (most likely due to all the light pollution in London).

Friday, 2 May 2008
