One from a while back taken at Greenwich Observatory. Just a couple of girls having their lunch in the shadow of the 40ft Herschelian reflector in the grounds of the Centre. Pity about the dustbin but a bit too big to clone out. (And I supposed I could've got rid of the light on the wall, but just pretend I did. Wink)

I was going out today to Greenwich to see the warship docked there but the sun only came out for about 10 minutes so we did the garden instead. Actually got the lawn cut and flowerbeds weeded before it rained again. Looks lovely now though. If only we could sit in it. Smile

You haven't tagged this as "humour", so I apologise for seeing it as such. But your title does suggest "you are being watched". It's just that the reflector struck me as an extemely inept big brother attempt at CCTVSmile. Love it!

I thought the same Pamela but didn't think it was humorous enough to get that tag. Thank you. Grin

I am reliably informed that Herschel invented the term 'snap shot' in respect of photography. One hopes that he didn't cart that scope around the streets taking candids Wink

LOL...I love Pamela's comment Grin

I don't think you need to clone anything out here. Perfectly decent candid capture, Chris Smile
