    Nice to see what you all got up to on day 2! I just knew someone was going to photograph that windmill! :lol:

    Was there a cycle race going on or something? Looks like an "official" photographer there on the corner!

    Yes, that was an official bicycle race, and yes, that is the official photographer on the corner. Good for you to spot him! :)
    I am quite happy about this cyclist's photos, for panning has never been my forte, you know?

    I must still send those from Finchingfield. So stay tuned.

    So for all interested, and for the interest of those who TRIED (much in vain) to get to Finchingfield with us on Saturday, but for some silly nav sat reason were sent WEST instead of EAST to "get there" (or rather NOT), here is what you missed:

    Hertz explained me all about authentic Romanic church doors and the myth of the keystone when we saw this door of the church in Finchingfield.

    I think there is NOT ONE visitor to Finchingfield who has NOT taken a photo of THIS scene here! Not one! (Finchingfield is said to be the most often photographed village of England, and I am not surprised).

    However, this man clipping his hedge may not have known that he was motif to at least three of us (Hertz? Scurra? You too????), for Vixenta's photo of him is already up somewhere here and I happen to know that he is among my sister's digital photos, too :D.

    And last, but not least, one TOTAL view of that "famous" Morris Isis that was parked there and that we all admired so much and in whose reflective mudguards we took all our photos:

    Sister of mine, do you hear me? Haven't you got any photos of our day in Thaxted and Finchingfield that you want to show here? Buildings, churches, countryside, windmills?

    Now I am tired.
    Maybe I have some time tomorrow.
    Corinna always says I must come and post photos and look at photos and answer - I have too much work! After work I am tired.
    I also have to work tomorrow. But before Corinna phones me again to ask, I shall try to send some pictures from Thaxted and Finchingfield.

    Gah my shots of day 2 are in Harrow and i'm in Kent.. i'll post some when I get back in 2 weeks time if you're still interested (oh and yes I got a picture of the chap clipping his hedge too).

    It's worrying how much crow spotting was going on Jon, in the end we had to resort to the flag because real ones were proving to tricky to get out of the trees. I'll be sure to take a bag of fresh eyeballs next time I'm near a grave yard and see if I can tempt them down :s

    Never mind, Scurra. We'll still be here in two weeks time! I sure will still be interested!

    But where is that sister of mine who promised to send in more of HER photos from Day 2???? Must get to the phone, I think, also to find out if her films were back today. For if not... then the earliest next chance to get them is next TUESDAY! My nerves! Oh, my nerves! ;););)
