Photos of recent activities

Some photos, entirely taken by Richard. Click on them to get the pictures bigger. The photos are labelled on the bigger versions (labelling them here made the tables too messy). Very large versions of most of these photos exist should anyone want them (Richard had his camera in insanely high resolution mode).

I need a userpic of Richard behind a camera for whenever I'm posting pictures that he took.

Saturday 23rd April 2011: In which Paploo the ewok meets some bearded METAL wuzzies, and I meet Wolfsbane. Also, a tree:
Paploo with Martin of FuryUK Paploo with Jase of Wolfsbane
Me with Wolfsbane Low Trees!

P.S. That is a horrible picture of me! I forgot to untie my hair from the messy ponytail that it was in because it was TOO HOT in the venue!

Monday 25th April 2011: Richmond Park. Featuring bunnies, ewok and my favourite tree.
Bunnies, big and small Hungry bunny!
BUNNY BOTTOM! My favourite tree
Paploo in my favourite tree Me in my favourite tree
You have to look in the trees... Paploo in the hollow tree face


My favourite tree is awesome because, as you can see, it is broken but still alive and flourishing. It blew over in a storm some years ago and a large number of its roots are exposed - so it no longer grows upwards, but instead, sideways. Yet it sustains not only itself, but also resident wildlife.

I think this tree provides a useful metaphor whenever anyone wants to pity me too much for my health crap. My health and mobility could both be better, but my life is NOT a tragedy!

(Although the photo of me on the tree doesn't show how many spoons it took, or how dead I was the next day.)
