Taken by minipig, who had by then worked out what the viewfinder was for and stopped taking photos of everyone's knees. Billy then attempted to reciprocate with a picture of minipig, who promptly ran off to play with his union issue helium balloon.

I went to sixth form in Shaftesbury, but haven't been back to the town many times since I got into photography. This is the best shot I've managed of Gold Hill so far: the sun was shining! Not perfect yet though: I did a bad job clone stamping out somebody walking up, but I couldn't be bothered either doing a proper job, or waiting for the street to clear because I didn't know how long the van was going to be there, so gave up for the day. If you don't recognise it, put on Dvorak's New World, and it should click.

Two hours sat on a wall, compressed into four minutes. Apologies for using WMV format -- I'm currently making do with the horrible piece of software that came with windows.

Enjoying an encore. The Nikkor 50mm f1.8 does its magic.
Benn attributes his longevity to his annual trip to the Tolpuddle Festival. I've forgotten where he was in the speech at this exact moment, but I seem to recall the arm gestures was part of an anecdote about somebody.

I just threw this together in ten minutes because I'd already seen that output of the better prepared, equiped and talented flickerites and knew I couldn't compete. Cropped from 200mm at f5.6, ISO 400, and variously 1-2secs. Sharpness wasn't helped by the buildup of condensation on the lens, and the fact that focusing was probably affected by the thing cooling down.

The Anglican cathedral in Birmingham, with its first Bishop, Charles Gore, outside. The building was constructed in 1715 as a parish church, when St Martin's proved insufficient for the city's growing population. It was consecrated as a cathedral in 1905 when Gore split the Diocese of Worcester to create the Diocese of Birmingham. Because of its origins as a parish church, it is the third smallest cathedral in England, after Derby and Chelmsford.The grade I listed cathedral is of brick faced with stone, in the Baroque Style. The original architect was Thomas Archer, though it was enlarged in the 19th century by Birmingham architect J.A. Chatwin. Stained glass windows are by Edward Burne-Jones, and were saved from bombing in WWII by the civic society.

I think that river is probably Crooke Gill anyway. It's the valley between Pen-y-ghent and Fountains Fell, taken from the Pen-y-ghent summit, in the Yorkshire Dales.

The village of Kettlewell in Upper Wharfedale, Yorkshire Dales National Park, in the north of England. The village is sheltered between Great Whernside, and Buckden Pike mountains at the confluence of the River Wharfe and Park Gill Beck. The first market was held here in the 13th century, and the industrial revolution of it was a site of textile manufacture. It was location of the fictional village of "Knapely" in the 2003 film Calendar Girls.

From Knighthayes Court. I over saturated the foreground then converted to b&w with channel mixer, raising the greens and reducing the blues, to create the frosty look.
