Always liked the cut of his literary jib, that one.

Painfully amicable bastard.

The Birb.

Enigma.

Poet.

Icon.

Man.

Birbee's a woman..

Me, Lynton and the dwarf Skoob met her at a bar in Waterloo..

She drinks pink ladies on the rocks with tequila..

other than that I can't give details of what happened later in room 68b of the Waldorf Motel in Bayswater..

Ask the medical team at UCL Hospital..

in strict confidence..

He's been taking pictures, lots of pictures - jolly good he is at it too. You can see them on Farcebook. Plus he's got a blog, which is very interesting and frequently hilarious, plus he might be moving to a different part of the country soon. Oh, and he's got a camel wot he nicked when he went to Egypt last year on his holidays, and he's been to Rome too. And he grew a whopping great moustache for that Movember thing.

Bloody hell...keep up!

Slow cookers.

Regards

Skoob.

are you questioning my propriety sir?

Me!

An honest maiden, all alone in the world with HIV positive twins and a dipstick idiot of a boss who pretends he once ran Bolivia..

You're a cad sir..

A cad and an evil bastard and a dwarf

One question..

Are you a one-legged dwarf?

Or a Portsmouth biped?

Cum on Skoob..

Own up!

This monstrous monopedal midget perversion is perniciously pervading posts purposely. Together with Inchcock's perverted fetishistic fixated fantasies of fantastically freaky, fleecy, flocculent, fluffy, furry, fuzzy,female, hirsute heterosexual Huns this place is getting towards needing an 18y+ classification.

Keep up the good work lads!

Hello folks, where you all been?

I have written hundreds of stories in the last XXXX months since you have been gone but there was no one to read them.

Now you have all appeared again.

Good to see you.............

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him........

Oh, and by the way, I'd better be Featured Writer tomorrow or else you can all fuck off again.

Right, I'm off to photograph a fly I have been slowly suffocating for the last 11 hours.............

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him........

Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

Nice one Birbs did you cool him down? - Is it a stacked image composite or do you have a frighteningly expensive macro with a good depth of field? Some stacked images of insects are impressive.

Hey Birbee,
If you undo the lens off the front and shake your camera out, it'll just fly away. Then you can get back to taking proper Facebook pictures - high wide-angle shots of pairs of drunk people pretending to lick each other's faces.

Lovely shot though - reminds me of a young Jeff Goldblum

All the best
Roy

Birb! They told me you had been captured by the "Onlee Meee GooLee Tribe in Feltham! I sent a search party out to find you but the buggers got drunk at the first Nunnery they came to. Thank God you survived, can I have the money you pledged for my sponsored walk to SKOOBS garden shed?

Your better off here with us mate, its a lot safer.

Love as always

Lynton, it's a 9 shot stack.

Here's one that got into a National Magazine recently (only a small photo, but it is one of mine and it was a national mag!!!)

Fireworks

And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.

Ellie, a stacked image is when you take multiple photos of the same thing, but focusing on different points, and then combine (stack) them all together to make one image.

With macro photography, unless you have very expensive equipment (which I don't), then only a very small area of the subject is in focus (depth of field).

Stacking allows the whole subject matter to be in focus..............

The Fireworks picture is amazing! Very impressive....

And congrats on being in National Geographic. That was my dream in high school...to take pictures for National Geographic.
