    Looks like you both had a great time.

    that shot of steps is amazing! I mean how do you make something so dull look so good? Now that is a talent!

    Hi Corinna!

    It is great to finally put a face to the name. You look as nice in pictures as you come across in your comments!

    Oooo, I feel sooooo flattered right now :oops: :blushing: But thank you so much, all the same, dllb.
    After this upcoming weekend with our London TPF Meet-Up I guess there will be lots more faces to be put to names, as I hope to see both many "old" friends from last year's meet-up in Saffron Walden AND many new friends who have become friends via this forum for long but will become even better ones when we meet.

    Like meeting Archangel.
    It just proved that somehow you look at each other a bit curiously at first (guess what: he hid his eyes behind SHADES - and there I was, expecting to see that man with the BRIGHT and SHINY eyes from the avatar!!! ;) ;)) yet feeling we had actually known each other for just about always.

    I just hope you weren't too shocked to see how old I really am, Archie!?!?!?!

    na, your not old.... you kept up with me just fine..... and we did plenty of walking!

    Corinna is not home yet ;) ..... she took two weeks, went to cornwall first, then came to plymouth (to see me) then went to portsmouth, then finally the london meet-up.
    So she'll have hunderds of pics to get through no doubt.... and will take a while to get around to the ones of me...... luckily. :mrgreen:

    Setting up shot again ... certainly yet another stunning photo

    9.

    The lonely man (can you find him?)

    10.
    [​IMG]
    "The Anchor Project" (did these photos come out the way you wanted then, Archie?)

    11.
    [​IMG]
    One of my attempts to get the photography exhibition on "The World From Above" into frame

    12.

    Archie admiring both our declared favourite of the photography exhibition.

    My "shooting the warship" did not turn out for I had the white balance of that little camera still set on "tungsten", so my photos all came out blue :roll: - and I took all in all 4 before I noticed. Ts! (And the little one does not even BEGIN to shoot RAW, so that would not be an option...!)

    Once again I must say thank you to you, Archie, for spending that afternoon with me, helping me to get The Monster (i.e. my bag) into the cloak room at your office, showing me around, explaining things, having lunch and cappuccino with me and all this. It was such an enjoyable, if only short, stay at Plymouth, I loved every minute of it.

    AHHHHH..... i look too normal!...... yuk my hair DID get cut too short.... thought as much...... and i appear a little ill in the second one :meh:
    Anyways, personal critique over......:mrgreen:

    Corinna these are cool..... its so much better to see someone else take on my boring ol' city...... cuz i'v seen it a thousand times and can never get inspired.

    ok, my helicopter pic wasnt good..... it was way too small with my kit lens on... i'll take another look though... might make an interesting abstract!

    Love your 'Drake' and 'Masculinity' ones with the wheel behind it..... thats cool :thumbup:

    .....ahh...... the anchor ones..... yea mine were ok..... although you were in the shot in two of em :lol:

    ..... that gravestone image was awesome!..... def my fav.

    It was good to meet you too corinna..... glad you enjoyed it. ;)
