I think that James, Carol's son did much better job using Robert's camera. Here's the link [].

Got up at 9.30 and went to Reuters with Gina for an interview. Monkeyed around their offices dressed like two call girls (we were going straight to the show afterwards). Took some tourist pictures with the camera that annoys the crap out of me. I really should got a disposable cameras.

Interesting to see your shots AND the ones on Robert's blog... his are a great recording of events and yours are a great grouping of artistic impressions, such totally different posts and both really fun to see! And when you meet your goal (which you will) we'll all say we "knew you when"... :)
