    Yep today I met up with Lafoto for a few hours..... She was on her way to Portsmouth..... and kindly stopped off at my home city of Plymouth (England).... So we did the photo meet-up thing..... the following snapshots and pics were taken from todays lunch and stroll to the sea front.....:mrgreen:

    Luckily, Plymouth is home to a series of photography exhibits for the next 2 weeks and we spotted an outdoor one on the way..... the theme was 'Earth from the air' and features several well known shots of our planet from above..... unfortunately i didnt get any good shots of it tho.... :mrgreen:

    We had a fun day..... and i concluded that corinna is a very nice person (i paid her to say the same about me)..... and no doubt she'll add her pics to this thread.....(but check with me first on the embarrassing ones corinna K!!!)...... I may also have a few more..... but im shattered right now!... and the editing on these is dodgy enough as it is......

    we had a good day! ....... but unfortunatly when a mod meets another mod it rains frogs in another country... and a load of other wierd things happen. :mrgreen:

    Hallo-hallo, so here I am in Portsmouth, checking out this thread and seeing the photos that AA took of me for the first time, and he never let me check them out beforehand to tell which ones of me I'd find embarrassing (I like ALL of those I can see here now, I might add :D), so I just MIGHT feel tempted to post up his in here without letting him see them first, too :D!!!
    Today we are still having these gorgeous clouds here in Portsmouth, and wouldn't it be just lovely if the weather held until after this weekend, the important one, THE TPF UK Meet-Up weekend!!?!?!?
    Your photo of the steps is marvellous, Archie, I really like that one, and I aimed at the lonely fisherman too, only with a longer lens ... must see what it really looks like once I am back home and can download all that's on my memory cards into my computer. Then I can also show you what I was aiming at when you sneaked over my shoulder.

    For all of you folks I can say that when I met Archie I just went through a brief moment of wishing I were a) at least 20 years younger and b) single and unattached :oops: --- he's just such a cool guy. Ha! And I like his spacious office! And think SPACIOUS! ;) Shouldn't they, Archie?? Heehee :lol:

    Photos from me of the mini meet-up at the beginning of next week, ok?
