I am glad you have all enjoyed this posting. I will be doing a series called [b]This is ****** calling[/b] .. and will try to capture something of the spirit of the cities and towns using abstract images instead of the normal touristy pictures. I have to own up here and agree with Eutal. Heathrow is my favourite picture of this set.

amazing mixture of surreal and hyper real and unreal pics, one of your best sets so far!

"london calling" is one of my favorite clash songs - i guess they would have visualized their song a little less "artsy" and a little more dirty street wise, but your music slide show is definitely worth remembering! :-)

Amazing set. So much variety, so much to see! Kew Gardens must be a fun place to visit.
