The rest is missing - it got spilt.

On Federal Agents in Comedy on 26th June 2003

Comendions, as a vital cornerstone of the society in which we live, are very important to all of us, I'm sure everyone will agree. Almost every morning I wal… -more-

On Prime Meridian of the World in England on 20th June 2003

I guess you're right :o)

On Nek in Celebrities on 15th April 2003

Wait…. isn't that me? I don't remember this being taken…

On The last message in Tour de la Mangosta! on 11th March 2003

OK this is getting silly… this is on the front page twice - why does it need to be in 2 galleries?

On ESB from Bleecker St in Greenwich Village in United States of America on 20th January 2003

I just noticed that the tree is upright but the rest of the world is leaning right…

On my pretty new hair color(s) in phoenix, arizona on 19th January 2003


It's good to see your pictures. We haven't spoken for (what seems like and nearly is) months, I'll call you when you're back in MA.

On Alive? in Comedy on 17th January 2003

I don't think cats have homosexuality. Anyway, how would you tell just from the picture?

On Extra 300L in Flying pics on 9th January 2003

Nothing's the wrong way up! What are you talking about? This is a normal flying attitude for me.

On Kristin Kreuk in Celebrities on 3rd January 2003

You need to get out more.

On Rangitoto Island from Mt Eden in New Zealand 2001 on 30th October 2002

This was the maximum focal length of my lens so I couldn't zoom in any more. It is more of a landscape than a picture if the island.

On Shakira: Doing what she does best... in Celebrities on 23rd October 2002

hey, that guy's wearing my t-shirt!

On Atocha Overview in Gef's Travels in Europe on 17th September 2002

Aren't those people at the bottom right? They don't look much like terrapins.

On Mitre peak in Milford Sound in Tom's travels on 11th August 2002
Wow :

I, thought NZ was spectacularly beautiful, but it looks like I didn't even get to see the really nice bits!

On Mark in James's Random Gallery on 24th July 2002

Haha, actually I was thinking that about some of them… they look like old photos you find in your grandparents' stuff.

On Another test pic - the camera wasn't a waste of money in Gef's Travels in Europe on 22nd July 2002

You tend to lose things like 'colour vibrancy' when you scan prints anyway. It's better to scan the negatives ;o)

On Kristin Kreuk in Celebrities on 22nd July 2002

You're right gef, I know plenty of girls who are better looking! (disclaimer: that's just my opinion, please don't kill me)

On Candle Tree in Georgina's Sculptures on 9th July 2002

That's not a terribly flattering picture of your dad.

On Kings Road in United States of America on 8th July 2002

yeah, it's the same colour as a tube sign.

On Sarah about to eat the kitten in Northampton MA on 5th July 2002

The strange sepia-like tone is caused because I forgot to set the scanner to B&W mode but I quite like it so I kept it.

On My kitchen tidy! in James's Random Gallery on 4th July 2002

It's funny you should mention that, but one of my old flatmates used to use gin to clean his PC's expansion cards' contacts…

On Allison Mack in Celebrities on 3rd July 2002

hahaha yeah, it's really easy to 'prove' that someone is better looking than someone else… um yeah. Well I have to say I prefer allison mack, whatever an… -more-

On Steep mogul run on mont fort... fun! in Ski on 31st March 2002

On Richmond Park from the air in New Zealand 2001 on 23rd March 2002

On 4 in SDOE on 20th March 2002

The picture titles aren't very interesting! How about something like Vickers Wellington Mk.whatever, or something?

On Tristan at the top of Homeward in New Zealand 2001 on 25th August 2001
Dust & Scratches :

On The Remarks from Remarkables Park in New Zealand 2001 on 25th August 2001

On Stewart and Tristan in Parties on 20th July 2001
