May 24, 2004

So yesterday afternoon I was out and about in London town, taking salad and coffee with a friend, and, inevitably, taking the odd snap, including this very odd snap. Sometimes I misunderstand when the photo is actually being taken, and by the time it gets taken, the camera is pointing in the wrong direction entirely.


But, of all my photography mistakes, this is the one I have so far liked the best.

I think, but am not sure, that the shadow was thrown by one of the Billion Monkeys, and that the big thing sticking out at the front is a great big lens. It would figure. I am often in a confused rush when I spot particularly fine specimens, and you never know when you are going to meet one.
