Gailen Mapes42,567Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera G-K - 3 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 15th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday  #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle  #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  #handpickedcircles Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles cre2013-09-03 17:01:2229510410CC G+

Super Bowl Sunday

I'm one of those people. I'm a non-American who loves American Football. And today is the big day of the year for us fans of the sport closest to chess in padded armour there is (excluding actual chess in padded armour (which isn't half as exciting as it sounds)): it's Super Bowl Sunday!

I took the time to introduce my wife to the sport when we first started dating and I'm pleased to say that she's a massive fan of the game now too. Subsequently, we've entered into a little tradition in our home where the pair of us book the Monday following the game off and spend the entire day subjecting our bodies to the best and worst that America can offer from the food and drink aisles of the local supermarket. Note: there are some non-American drinks in there too; we're not completely crazy.

As for tonight's game, after some... more »

The Cone Of Shame

"I feel like an idiot."

"You're fine."

"I look stupid."

"You look fine. Trust me."

"No. I really look stupid. Everyone will stare at me."

"Nobody will pay you any attention. They've seen it all before. Hell, they've seen far worse."

"You're just saying that. I look stupid."

"You don't look stupid. Please, can we just go out?"

"I don't know if I can cope with people staring at me all the time."

Condensation-formingly warm inside.

Outside - which is where I was as you can possibly tell - it was colder than a witch's tit.

Eastney Beam Engine House

An ever-so-slightly processed (subtle, but if you look closely you can possibly tell) shot of the Eastney Beam Engine House in Portsmouth.

Described on the museum's own website - http://www.portsmouthmuseums.co.uk/museum-service/Eastney-Beam-Engine-House - as "an impressive Victorian building containing a pair of classic Boulton Watt beam engines and pumps restored to their original 1887 condition." They're not wrong about the impressive part. Or the engines part. I'll have to take their word regarding the original 1887 condition part because my time machine's in the shop getting fixed.

Boycotting Tesco

The rain was falling lightly but persistently and the musician in the next alcove over from me was playing to an audience more concerned about hurrying along to the next store or wherever they'd left their cars than considering fishing about in pockets for loose change.

And then, walking his bike laden down with bags that looked like they contained all his possessions in the world, up strode an old man; lank hair framing a stubbled, weathered face under a pair of large sunglasses and hat festooned with badges, many of them birds. He stared at the musician for a while, bobbed his head in time with the tune, then pulled out a harmonica from his pocket. It looked like we were in for an impromptu jam.

But it seemed that the musician liked to play alone. In the space of seconds he'd stopped, packed up, and wandered off with a wry smile. Some people... more »

The Big Bang

For the briefest moment of time everything that ever would be was contained within a space seemingly far too small for the mass that would emerge. A great history stretched ahead of it; a time when it would explode outwards, blossoming with life and colour and joy. There was a death on the horizon too, a time of withering and crumbling and fading into nothingness, but right now so far away as to be meaningless. This was its moment. This was its birth. This was its big bang. Oh, there was also sex with a bee to look forward to as well. That was going to be freaking awesome.

Jazz Busker

I could tell you about all the dreadful buskers that Chichester has to offer - I could talk at length about the bum notes from trumpeters as well as the key changes and pitches from various singers that were rejected by the original songs' composers on the grounds of violating the Geneva Convention against cruel and unusual punishment - but I'd like instead to talk about a very good one.

I don't know her name and she seems very shy so I won't dare to intrude and ask. She is, however, an absolutely fantastic jazz guitarist, often playing along to a backing track from something by Ellington or Coltrane or some other proponent of the art with whom I'm less familiar. Unlike other musicians who sometimes haunt the precinct in the city she loses herself in the music, barely even noticing or acknowledging the passersby or those few who grace her guitar... more »

Deal Pier

On a recent trip to Kent we spent a couple of hours in Deal as we knew it had a castle there and we do like a good castle.

But we also like piers and we saw that Deal had one of those too. This necessitated a walk down it and led my wife to remark that Deal Pier was "without a doubt the ugliest pier I've ever seen."

Well, ugliness is in the eye of the beholder and it just so happens I didn't share my wife's opinion. Deal Pier is a wonderful example of a simple, brutalist structure; raw concrete and rusting iron creating great lines and shapes everywhere you look. What sort of beast couldn't possibly like that?

Please don't tell my wife I just called her a beast.

On The White Cliffs Of Dover

We took a short break recently, spending a few days exploring the county of Kent which describes itself as "the garden of England." I don't know that I'd describe it that way myself but I suppose my first choice description of "far better than Norfolk" - whilst wholly accurate - might be a tad contentious.

We explored castles, we visited stately homes, we wandered down piers (and up them too as failure to do so leads to death from exposure or seagull abduction), and a good time was had.

We also decided to take a walk along part of the famous white cliffs of Dover (spoiler: no bluebirds were spotted) in order to reach the South Foreland Lighthouse. This, incidentally, is something you too should do should you ever find yourself in the area; there's a rather lovely teahouse there but the personal tour of the... more »

Siderodromophobia

I used to have a not-quite-phobia, not-quite-fear of trains. Let's call it an apprehension of them.

I could watch them on television - not that I ever would; they're trains, not entertainment - and I could travel on them with no real problem other than the standard sort that accompanies any form of rail travel in this country (South West Trains, I'm looking at you). But my general unease would manifest itself if I happened to walk near a track or cross a pedestrian bridge over tracks while a train was approaching.

There's this noise, you see. It's metallic and quite high-pitched, and it builds. It's the vibration of the metal rails and the air being pushed ahead of the approaching train. It's something eerie and threatening and, being industrial, it's unnatural which makes it worse. It doesn't help that I'm... more »

Against The Wall

You had one job to do. You had one little job to do. And you failed. Worse than that, you failed on purpose. Your comrades bravely suffered the abhorrence of the enemy as it crawled past them, but not you. You abandoned your posts in a time of great conflict. You allowed... Ugh! I can barely bring myself to say it! You allowed cars to drive freely. You failed to maintain the contraflow. You have been found guilty of desertion by a court of your peers.

Firing squad, take aim.

The Bear Tree

Bears grow well in temperate climates but it's when you get greater than average rainfall - such as that currently otherwise blighting the south of England - that the crops really thrive. Over the past few months one of the largest sectors for employment growth has been for bear pickers as it's vitally important to make sure every last one is plucked from the bear tree branches at just the right time; the only drawback to bumper bear growths is that those that ripen and fall to the ground naturally often go on to terrorise neighbourhoods, savage locals, and - worst of all - steal pic-a-nic baskets.

The Mirror

A mirror can add a lot to a photograph. It can add depth or light or the presence of something you wouldn't normally be able to see. It can double the appearance of something key to the composition. It can change the angle of some object. It can flip part of the image and force you to look at it in a different way. For me, though, probably the best thing a mirror brings to a photograph is evidence that you're not a few feet from a vampire. This guy in this photo: he's not a vampire. Good work mirror.

Smiles

Miles and miles of smiles, all thanks to the Coca-Cola truck paying a visit to Chichester yesterday (http://www.flickr.com/photos/neonbubble/sets/72157638878750734/) to spread joy in the form of tiny cans of coke, photos in front of the aforementioned truck, and Christmas songs from a group of enthusiastic singers.

The Terror

They are terrifying things. Powerful things with arms that swing and, yes, destroy if you should venture too close. And the noise, the noise; dull, incessant, so frightening. We are wary of them. We try to keep them at a distance. Perhaps if we gather together for safety, perhaps if we amass out at sea then it will go away.

Yes! Yes! It runs! Look how it heads back to its parents!

We are safe. For now, we are safe. But we must be ever vigilant.

Described by Time Out magazine as "the hipper Brian Cox", Jim Al-Khalili, OBE, is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Surrey, but is probably best known to the general public for his television documentaries such as The Secret Life of Chaos, Shock and Awe — the Story of Electricity, and Order and Disorder, as well as his regular BBC Radio 4 show The Life Scientific, where he interviews famous living scientists about their scientific lives.

Professor Al-Khalili has written several science books aimed at the general reader, the latest being Paradox, published by Bantam Press.

In 2013 he became President of the British Humanist Association, but most important for us he is the Honorary President of Portsmouth Skeptics in the Pub, and we were delighted to welcome him back for the second time.

Norway Cruise - Crown Princess

I've finally finished going through the photos I took on our cruise through the Norwegian fjords on board the Crown Princess. Nothing too arty, nothing heavily processed, just a little bit of cleaning up, and a very, very small selection of the pictures taken. You don't want to see them all; trust me.

Pictures in this album are in no particular order and feature various fjords, Geiranger, Olden, Stavanger, Bergen, and Flåm. The cruise itself was great (second time for us with +Princess Cruises) and Norway's got some stunning scenery.

And all this means I might soon return to taking pictures and posting regularly again! Oh happy day!

Filtered Fjord

I know, I know... I haven't posted anything in ages.

I have an excuse. I took just under one billion photos on my recent Norwegian cruise and you know how it is when you have just under one billion photos to look through and say to yourself: "That's okay... exposure tweak... that's okay... sharpen that a smidge... that's not that great but I'll keep it... that's a variation on the previous three shots but I don't want to delete it... that's okay... that's bloody awful... that's okay..."

Yeah, so it's all taking a while.

Anyway, this morning I've been going through the last of my shots around the Geirangerfjorden and it was on this part of the trip that I started playing around with a set of filters that I'd bought especially. As someone who typically shoots street-style the need to... more »

A very quick thank you for the many, many birthday wishes and mentions that took place last week and which I'm just seeing now as I've been away on a cruise around the Norwegian fjords on the Crown Princess; internet usage was quite limited on my data plan in Norway and completely impractical while at sea. And then yesterday was spent tackling the mountain of washing and crying inwardly at the prospect of returning to work.

As you can probably imagine one or two photos were taken and may start to trickle in over the next few days, weeks, months, or years.

Plug

Not a photograph and probably not of interest to anyone who isn't British and who didn't grow up watching television in the 1970s and early 1980s, but having discovered this little gem of a YouTube channel this morning by accident and having laughed my head off (not literally) at loads of the videos I felt compelled to share especially since it doesn't seem to have got much love. If spoof episodes of 1970s/1980s British shows are your thing then this channel is well worth a subscribe/look.

I've linked to my site where I've picked out just four of the videos but the YouTube channel itself is http://www.youtube.com/user/victorialucas38

A Gathering

They gathered en masse under the awning of the stall, grabbing a little shelter from the light but persistent drizzle. Even from a distance it was clear that they were crowding the proprietor of the street business; it looked... odd.

"Do you have any large bags?" asked the woman at the front, her eyes scanning the stall but not glancing at its owner.

"I've got some small paper bags," she answered with a smile. "They should be big enough for anything you buy here."

"We're after large bags," came the reply after a moment's pause. "The more impractical for wandering around the streets with, the better."

I watched the lady who ran the stall look around uncomfortably. She did her best to smile again and pointed at the signs that decorated her mobile place of business.... more »

Chichester Tramp

What majesty there is in being a tramp!

Fresh air every day. Watch the seasons change moment by moment! Well, every moment not filled with hunting through bins for discarded food and the butts of cigarettes. See strangers grow up, form relationships, and steadfastly refuse to make eye contact with you!

To live a life free from deadlines and the worries of paying bills: is it any wonder that the position of tramp holds so much respect amongst the non-tramp populace?

Look! Look at the space the tramp is given! It's not the smell (it's not just the smell, anyway) and it's not because of the random talking or wheezy shouting at passersby (although that probably helps a bit); that's the space that comes from pure, unadulterated respect! Maybe even reverence!

Okay, probably not reverence.

Portsmouth City Museum

Took a wander down to the museum today as there was something advertised as "a Saxon Invasion" taking place. It turns out that the reason that England isn't named after the Saxon people is that their invasions - a marquee and a smaller tent showcasing food, jewellery, and weapons - were often on the wrong end of a sturdy defence of kicking the crap out of the Saxons and telling them to get back to Saxonland (I'm not convinced that's where they came from to be honest).

Still, there was a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle exhibition which was interesting (author of Sherlock Holmes as you know, a bit of a spiritualist nutball as you may know, played in goal in Portsmouth as everyone around these parts knows) and I even discovered that there's a garden area in the museum, that you can go into it, and that the view of the museum from there is... more »

Buskers

Chichester is a reasonably affluent place and it attracts a lot of tourists on account of its... okay, I'm not entirely sure why it attracts a lot of tourists although it certainly does for some reason. Anyway, where there are tourists and locals with money there will be buskers, and in all the many lunchtimes I've spent observing and photographing people I've come to recognise a lot of these buskers.

There's Guy Who Plays The Blues who's very good and doesn't really seem to make as much money as he deserves. Great voice, great skill on the guitar.

There's Girl Who Plays Jazz and, again, she's very talented. Although miserable as sin. Maybe it's her jazz personality shining through.

There's also White Guy Who Plays Reggae and he's an oddity; he's not bad, not great, but he just seems wrong somehow.... more »

Innocent

You'd never suspect it was him just from looking. You'd probably not even believe it could be him if someone simply told you. But it is him.

He's not the innocent old man you think he is. He's got that appearance of frailty that comes upon everyone in their later years but there's strength just beneath the surface too. He quite likely is someone's grandad but he's not just anyone's grandad.

He moves among the crowds leaving a ripple of chaos wherever he treads and you see the perplexed looks on the faces of those he passes. No, they think, it can't be... Can it?

It is.

It's the Phantom Hat Gluer.

Farlington Marshes - Handheld HDR

I don't normally shoot HDR (although I do often create pseudo-HDR from a single exposure for monochrome work) but the urge to try it washed over me on a walk around Farlington Marshes yesterday evening as the sun was sliding down the western sky and the gentle off-shore breeze was doing its darnedest to blow away as much of the oppressive heat of the day as it could.

Handheld, three exposures, Photomatix Pro, and only five minutes of standing around under the gaze of an ever-more-bored wife while I hunted through the menu options on the camera, turning dials and pressing buttons, trying to remember how to actually put the thing into HDR mode.

Chichester Canal

I loathe this weather. I'm not a hot weather person. I'm really, really looking forward to my trip to Norway in six weeks' time. It can't be this hot in Norway in September. It had better not be.

It's not good weather for street photography when it's like this. The light is very bright and the shadows are very dark and metering on the camera is an ever-changing, bloody nightmare. But worse than that is the skimpy clothing people wear (and I can't blame them, of course, because it's hot as I might have mentioned). It's bad enough in less sweltering times swinging your camera someone's way and risking that glance or stare with that withering look of revulsion behind the eyes (if only everyone could understand it's art (ish; your opinion may differ), not perversion - the lament of the street photographer) but when... more »

You know it was a good beer festival when you look back at some of the photos taken and realise most people - yourself included, at the time - were far more interested in drinking delicious ales and ciders, chatting with friends, and getting burnt to a crisp under a relentless sun rather than pay attention to the local Jedi group who had turned up just to demonstrate through hovering sticks how the power of battle stations was insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Public Displays Of Affection

It's interesting to see the different ways in which people show affection or react to public displays of affection while on the street.

Here we have a couple who are madly in lust with one another and who couldn't care less who sees them. And why should they? Good for them!

And there to the right is James who feels a little differently about things. James looks absolutely mortified. But then, James is being followed closely by a small, black, wheeled robot proclaiming its love for James in a shrill, electronic voice. James has probably been tinkering with the robot's emotion circuits and is now paying the price. Oh James, you silly person!

Embrace

This happens a lot. This happens more times than you might imagine.

"Excuse me, miss?" is how it starts. Or mister, sometimes. But not this time.

"Yes?" She's hooked. There's something about him that she finds intoxicating. I don't know if it's his eyes. They all have these intense eyes. Or it might be his lips. I've seen people stare at them before. I've even heard it might just be some sort of pheromone. I don't know about that. All I do know is that I'm immune to it which is why I'm here. And I know she's a goner.

"Can you form a teapot?"

How many times have I heard this now? I've lost count. It just sounds so innocent. Of course she can form a teapot. Everyone can form a teapot. We're all taught it at school but have you ever thought why? Who even uses a... more »

A Filthy Habit

If I had my way it would be banned entirely. Sure, you can't do it in public buildings or workplaces now but that just sends them outside, and outside is the nice place. Why are we letting those people befoul the nice place? Ban it outright is what I say.

And yet it's often photogenic too. It can make the difference between an okay shot and a slightly-better-than-okay shot. It adds interest; the revolting is often the most interesting after all.

So I watched him, one of them, one of those people, and I waited. He looked guilty as he reached into his pocket and took out a packet. He unwrapped it and discarded the clear polythene into his bag; he'd dispose of it properly later. Shielding it all with his hands - shielding it from the wind or from the gaze of onlookers who might not approve? Who can say? - he took in a mouthful and some painful... more »

The Cone Of Shame

"I feel like an idiot."

"You're fine."

"I look stupid."

"You look fine. Trust me."

"No. I really look stupid. Everyone will stare at me."

"Nobody will pay you any attention. They've seen it all before. Hell, they've seen far worse."

"You're just saying that. I look stupid."

"You don't look stupid. Please, can we just go out?"

"I don't know if I can cope with people staring at me all the time."

"They won't notice you. I promise."

"You're just saying that."

"Look, I'll stick a transparent cone around my neck and nobody will even see your shoes."

"You'd do that for me?"

Boating For Landlubbers

I felt my stream needed some colour.

That's not a reference to anything urological in case you're wondering.

This was taken in Abingdon-on-Thames (as it's now known) on Monday. Earlier this year the area was very flooded (that'll be that Thames I'll warrant) and if I had to guess I'd say that this particular boat didn't quite make it back to the river when the waters subsided.

And there's a #NauticalWednesday theme so I'll tag that.

Starbucks Coffee

Times are hard if you're a large chain of coffee shops still facing a bit of public backlash over tax avoidance. Do you just wait it all out, relying on the media to find something new to get their teeth into and the laziness and short memory of the average consumer? Or do you try something to entice the customers back from Costa? Do you, perhaps, provide free front row seats to the latest sport sweeping the nation: Giant Street Skittles? Do you hope that the lure of big names from boules crossing over into the high stakes street sport world will bring in the coffee-lovers in sufficient numbers to offset compensating families for the inevitable skittles-related fatalities?

No, you wait it out, of course.

A Better World Is Possible

I'm always looking for ways to improve the world - sure, not everyone approves of my eugenics experiments and the way I recently tampered with the planet's grasses in an attempt to bioengineer flame-resistant cattle (I still firmly believe that ordering steak "well done" is one of the leading causes of unrest on Earth) - so I was immensely pleased to stumble upon a demonstration taking place in Manchester last weekend where it seemed they shared my ambitions.

I tried to determine just how it was that they were planning to improve things but couldn't spot a mad-scientist-looking individual amongst the throng. Eventually, though, I did see a gentleman holding up what appeared to be step one in the group's masterplan. I stopped him.

"Throw the tories out?" I asked him. "Interesting. Interesting. And then... more »

Queue

"Is this the queue for Iron Man 3?"

"I... Sorry? What?"

"Iron Man 3. Robert Downey Jr reprising his role as Tony Stark in a mechanical suit. Sequel to Iron Man and its follow-up, Iron Man 2. Iron Man 3."

"You're joking, right?"

"About what?"

"About this being the queue for Iron Man 3."

"No. Why?"

"A queue by the side of the road?"

"Yes."

"A couple of benches and us lot sitting here in the sun?"

"It's not that unusual."

"I think you'll find it is."

"I was only asking."

"What's going on George?"

The Barber Shop Window

"And what can I do for you today, sir?"

"Just a little off the back and sides, and thin it out a bit, please."

"Certainly."

snip... snip...

"Lovely weather we're having."

"Mmmm, yes."

"Going on holiday this year?"

"No, probably not."

"Understandable. The economy's still in a bit of a mess, isn't it?"

"You said it."

"Gel it is."

Ask Me A Question

As the sign says: ask me a question.

I might even answer.

And the answer might contain some elements of truth.

But I wouldn't necessarily count on it.

Free House

Free house? Tom stopped dead in his tracks. It was an enticing offer. Obviously, he already had a house - the one he shared with Linda, his wife of forty years - but who couldn't use a second one? Maybe he could get around to getting one of those mistresses he'd read about and setting her up in it. Or, naturally, he could always sell the building and use the proceeds on a sports car; that was something he didn't already have.

No, no, he thought to himself. I've come out for some stationery and that's all I'm going back with. And Tom resumed his slow shuffle towards the bus stop to wait for the number 84.

Behind the windows of the building two figures glanced at one another with looks of mild frustration on their faces. The taller of the two ran his fingers through the ice cubes floating on the surface of the water in the bathtub; his... more »

A Warning From History

You've probably never heard of the Great Cutlery War if you're not an actual piece of cutlery, and even if you were a piece of cutlery with a Google+ account you may still never have heard of it as it was a dark period in the items' history; many knives and forks will still not mention this bloody period to their little teaspoons and sporks to this day.

You can imagine, therefore, that it took a great many meetings with lots of unsettling negotiating to finally get permission and funding for a memorial to this awful event and I was pleased to be there at the unveiling yesterday. The choice of sculpture - a reconstruction of the execution of paper cup traitors who sided with the plastic cutlery against the silverware in the Battle of Chichester Train Station - did not meet with everyone's approval, being seen as grisly by some or simply... more »

Questions

"Hi, do you have a minute to answer a few questions?"

"That depends; are they about hats?"

"Hats? Oh, ha ha! No, no, nothing like that."

"Well that's good. I don't really know much about hats."

"No, these are questions about..."

"My wife, on the other hand, is quite knowledgeable where it comes to headwear. It's quite odd, really. I'm not sure why she knows the things she knows."

"Hmmm, that is odd, but, anyway, these questions aren't about hats at all."

"Then again, she has an irrational hatred of Peruvians - she considers them a deceptive bunch and it ires her immensely - and your hat looks like it's from that region."

"I see."

Love Me?

"Will you still love me when I'm bald?"

"Of course. I don't love you for your hair."

"And will you still love me when I put on weight?"

"Even more than now as there will be more of you!"

"And will you still love me when I'm a giant slug who walks around in a t-shirt and no trousers in a blizzard?"

"Absolutely!"

And she did.

Market Stall

"I see you're interested in my pickled onions."

"I wasn't even looking at them! How dare you! Anyway, what do you expect when you're sitting like that? Oh! You mean the ones in the jar? Oh! Ha ha! You cheeky monkey!"

"Not quite, but... we've got some eggs left and we're down to the last few jars of lemon curd and preserves. Anything take your fancy? Other than my pickled onions, of course."

"Hee hee! You are a one! No, no, what I'm really looking for is fresh cantaloupe."

"Melons?"

"They're tucked beneath my jacket where you can't see them! See! Two can play at that game! But yes, cantaloupe melons. I'm making a cake for my niece and she does love cantaloupe melons on top."

Balancing Act

There comes a point in every bicyclist's life when he, she, or it discovers the singular joy that is keeping the bike as still as possible, standing on the pedals, and trying to keep balanced whilst wind, the dizzying force of the Earth's rotation, or butterflies alighting on shoulders do their utmost to assist gravity in sending the vehicle's owner crashing to the ground.

That point in life is usually around the age of seven or eight and it forms part of that area of growing up that involves trying to beat friends and impress people of the opposite or same or no sex.

Occasionally, though - just occasionally - this joy of balancing comes late in life to a cyclist. But just because it happens at an older age those desires to outdo friends or colleagues or show off aren't necessarily suppressed by wisdom. It happened today to this man and... more »

DC Superheroes

Not to be confused with superheroes from American publications, the District of Chichester has its own motley collection of do-gooders battling the scourge of the south coast on a daily basis, and yesterday was try out day.

Most attendees didn't make the cut, of course, but the session did end well for a successful trio so I'd like to introduce the world to - and warn any potential supervillains about - Chichester's newest defenders of truth, liberty, and the West Sussex way of life:

Cumulus - With a cloud on his head and the ability to control water vapour, Cumulus is the man you need when a kettle is in danger of boiling over. Or if you're locked in a sauna.

No Valentine

"On Valentine's day? Please tell me this is a horrible joke Michael!"

"I can't. I wish I could but..."

"Is it me? Is it me being pushy?"

"It's not that, no."

"Just because I'm wearing a wedding dress... it's a joke, it doesn't mean anything. It doesn't have to be like this!"

"I said it's not that. Can't we just leave it at that? Part ways as, well, maybe not friends, but just, you know, part?"

"Is it because I'm a mannequin? You said it didn't matter!"

"It doesn't! And it's not that. I told you I had a crush on Kim Cattrall in the movie Mannequin. You were - you are my Kim... more »

Warm Inside

Condensation-formingly warm inside.

Outside - which is where I was as you can possibly tell - it was colder than a witch's tit.

My gloves: they do nothing to keep the feeling in the tips of my fingers!

Street Hypnotist

"Look deep into my eyes... Feel yourself getting... Are you looking up my nostrils?"

"I'm very sorry; it's just that you're quite tall."

"Perhaps you're quite short! Ever think of that?"

"I have done on many occasions, thank you. Are you here to hypnotise me or insult me?"

"You're right, I'm sorry. I'm new to street hypnotism and a little nervous and, yes, that's no excuse for rudeness. Sorry. Again."

"That's okay. Why don't you have another go?"

President Putin's Present

In a wonderfully warm ceremony - a great counterpoint to the cold weather - Chichester was today twinned with Moscow. Vladimir Putin could not attend as he was busy posing topless for Judo Fishermen On Horses Quarterly (Russia's top-selling magazine dealing exclusively with fishermen who like both wearing pyjamas and the feel of a stallion between their thighs). However, to impress the importance of this bond between the two great cities the Russian President did send along an old woman with a headscarf as a gift of friendship. This will be a welcome addition to Chichester's existing collection of old women in odd headwear. President Putin, thank you.
