    Great images everyone!

    I will post mine some day, there are not many anyway, but still post them I will.

    I am sort of hyper-busy these days though, so it might take a week or so ;)

    :lmao:

    ... same camera, but she got the longer lens!

    Once outside of the museum, it was clear that Chris was still in a state of shock

    [​IMG]

    And that the beasts had indeed got out during their rampage and crushed everything in their path

    [​IMG]

    We decided to take sanctuary in the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, as that had been there for hundreds of years and had survived plagues and riots and wars and all sorts of bad things which made the rampage of the beasts look like a pinprick on the thumb of humanity.

    I looked for clues as to how this aincient church had remained when all around it had changed (like the buses only rule up the High street)

    A large amaount of in depth investigation later, I think I found the answer as to why it was still there...

    [​IMG]

    Chris looked on sagely as I explained the rules, and he vowed not to remove the church without proper authorisation as Becky scanned the pews for rampant beasts

    [​IMG]

    ...however it was plain to see that the threat had indeed been dealt with in the museum and the beasts had all succumbed to the grate escape

    [​IMG]

    IIt was obvious that the church had a chequered past

    [​IMG]

    And on further investigation, we found out why duncanp had bailed out of the trip at the last minute, the Philpotts were known in these here parts...

    [​IMG]

    This scared Ferny and he started to shake uncontrollably - or was it something that the girls had done to him?

    [​IMG]

    I edged away and looked at the candles as if I didn't know him

    [​IMG]

    Looking back down the aisle, it was clear that we were being watched, so it was time to hotfoot it out of there and finally get some food!

    Why is it, Tony, that you seem to have been the only photographer during that Oxford Meet-Up, while everyone else is only WEILDING their cameras, apparently without making "proper" use of them?? :scratch:

    But hey, your narration fully (!) makes up for the fact that you were the only one to take pics!!! :D
