I recently went home to stay with my Mum for a while, The negative side of this is that she lives in the middle of nowhere (a small town called Great Snoring). Seeing as I live in London and whilst there have never seen the point in learning how to drive it kinda means I am stranded whenever I go back, basically I bought myself a nice road bike so I could cruise around the countryside whenever I go back.

This is some resulting Bike Porn taken using a 10mm wide angle in Wells Next The Sea

The Masons Arms

The Masons Arms, originally uploaded by Harry Sewell.

A unique protest this one, I have never seen someone protesting against the freemasons. I thought they were like a tame version of scientologists or kinda like a a grown up version of scouts for businessmen

This is Matt

If you are out late at night and happen to see him loitering in a car park looking this sinister then you would be well advised to turn and run before he begins forcefully reciting the entire works of Shakespeare.
