This Image Or Video Has Been Moved Or Deleted...

You probably cannot help but notice the cancer of dead images and Photobucket icons littering this site. Well, it appears that some of the content contained in this blog has been deemed a copyright violation.

Our friends over at Photobucket have decided to delete my account without warning. A simple email offering me a limited amount of time to delete suspected images would have been nice lads!

After a brief period of strained correspondence and humble pleas to re-activate my account, Photobucket have flatly refused. This leaves me with no option but to find the time to re-populate the site with my posts and sadly delete the images that were not taken by me...

I am personally disappointed as all of the images were narrated with a 'shout out' to the original photographer/artist. If they had contacted me directly I would have courteously removed them immediately.

Bear with me - this could take some time...

Busy Bees

Life can sometimes be a complete rush with people milling around like ants. All with places to go and places to be. Times Square is no stranger to this as my picture shows. I wonder what journey each person in this photo was on that night...

Sums It All Up Really...

Looking at this image of the Charging Bull (or Wall Street Bull) kind of sums up the next week I'm going to enjoy in work... This 7,000 pound bronze statue inspired by Black Monday (October 19, 1987), was created by New York City artist Arturo Di Modica in 1989.

Birdy Blooper

With the excellent Cloverfield currently pounding down the box office on both sides of the atlantic, it seems appropriate that this HUGE seagull flying over the skyline should be my new post after the downtime period ;)

Oh, by the way - Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and it's good to be back!!!

Thanks to Curious (Mike) Lee for this image

The Boyz Are Back In Town

I've always had a rather strange fascination with the pigeon. I love the little fellas. Their bobbing heads, cheeky walk and total neglect for anyone or anything. Food is all they long for. That's gotta be a good philosophy.

Couldn't resist snapping when I caught site of these in Times Square.

Wherever I Lay My Hat...

The second best bed in the world. Hopefully we'll be lying on it again very soon. It's been nearly two years now but I can still smell the fresh sheets. Sounds perverse, I know...

Golden Nuggets!

We've just returned from our yearly visit to Cornwall which saw fit to bless us with a solid block of non-stop blazing sun.

We visited the Wild West Theme Park to inject some much needed Americanism into the holiday. What struck me most about the park was it's valiant (albiet Cornish) attempts to ensure that you always felt part of the old west as each employee interacted as if you were a visitor in the 1880's. I particularly liked the way that they looked puzzled when I produced my digital camera!

At 1pm they staged a shoot-out outside the local Saloon and then invited us all in to the Courthouse to hear the criminal plea before we - the jury - took a vote on whether he should hang at 5pm.

Whilst walking around the museum we were agast to see that Frank mcLaowry, famous for partaking (and getting killed!) in the shoot-out at the OK Corrall, bore a striking resemblence to me!

Logo - 1, Food - 0

MacDonalds... putrid lumps of decrepid processed meat wrapped in a soggy flaccid bun. I am constantly astonished at the stranglehold this company has on the world. It beggars belief how people are prepared to pay for this crap. Each to their own I suppose...

KFC, Wendy, Wimpy, Pizza Hutt, Subway, Burger King - all of these do fast food so much better. However, even I can't deny that MacDonald's logo is pretty cool though...

The Meaning Revealed...

It's odd to think that in the 22 months since I took this picture I have NEVER attempted to discover the meaning behind this advertisement. It caught my eye whilst visiting Ellis Island and I have now, in the last five minutes, found out that it's merely a mortgage advisor! I have to admit that I was hoping for something a little more exciting than that...

E to the Power 3

Yes, It's that time of year again...
I am about to lock myself in a room and tether up to my PC.
See you all in three days!
