The day started out as Leanne and I going on a walk about to explore London with our cameras, but we actually just ended up finding weird and wonderful things such as strange food in china town, I think the weirdest thing I found was roasted coconut juice……… we stumbled upon Ripley’s believe it or not which had a scary animatronic band in the doorway and a real life guy juggling knives excitedly telling the watching audience ‘that’s it, come closer, closer!’….. The rainforest cafe where I asked Leanne what a huge round ball of a cuddly toy was, apparently it was a turtle, (this was agreed by the lady in shop that asked if we needed help)…..it so wasn’t a turtle! A five (six?) warehouse/shop dedicated solely to M&M’s and merchandise, I had no idea they were so popular, and I don’t think anything warrants the kind of price tags on the stock.
Anyway at St Paul’s we found a statue that stole our attention and they are the only photos I took! We also got to go in, something Leanne was very excited about!
These statues sum up our day for me, interesting but bordering on the creepy/sinister!
With christmas around the corner it was really fun to experiment with this weeks theme, with all the lights that are springing up you can get look at objects in different ways.
A close up. It almost looks like space nebula – link
I am thankful for my beautiful girlfriend, Leanne.

I think my photo suits this weeks theme very well. It is almost as if the butterfly is made up of different small shape arrangements and colour patterns. Natural geometry.
Around a month ago Leanne and I acquired an allotment space, in which the weeds were taller than me the whole way over the plot! With a pair of loppers and secateurs (and many holes and thorns in us) we cleared the whole space!
With firework night on Monday we thought it would be a good way to have a bonfire and get rid of all the allotment waste. With the odds stacked against us….the pile of garden debris was practically swimming in a pool of water. Tom and I being ‘the men’, obviously had to provide heat for my lovely lady, Leanne (see her photos of the ‘bonfire’ here) as the temperature had dropped to zero degrees.
Armed with a pack of dry kindling and firelighters we set to work, no matter how hard we tried we couldn’t get it going properly (even beating our chests wildly didn’t work!?). After focusing all the heat under a wooden pallete, thinking if we can dry that out and get that to take we would be laughing, though (see the photo at the bottom) we made it white hot in one spot it still didn’t want to play nice and we had to admit defeat 😦
