Watch - To observe with attention.

Says nothing about what you're observing. You can watch a street performer whose key talent (other than being painted silver) is not moving.

One of my favourite birds, coming in to land at one of my favourite places.

A gannet at Bempton Cliffs, East Yorkshire, about 80 miles from my house (Saddles up the road bike)

How can you tell it's your favourite among all the other gannets?

Amazing. I can't find these other cool pictures I saw of that day. I think it's just internet filing failure, I didn't just imagine them.

Yup, that shows once more that the German efficiency has a more appropriate taste for the aesthetics. Wicked.

I am an engineer and at the time was assessing the viability of using the mothballed mail rail tunnel infrastructure for an alternative purpose. I have walked the majority of the tunnel, but never got a ride in the train, unlike HRH :(

and bruce willis :P

Some of the police that went down there were amazed by it, never knew it existed, whilst others were just fed up with the darkness and damp of it and could not wait to get out. the way people react to things always intrigues me.
