Windy Night at Tower Bridge

Flipping windy today with gusts that stop you mid-step.. So I was a little worried I might lose my camera whilst taking some long exposure shots at one of my standard fall-back options... Tower Bridge. (According to my tag stats, this is its 46th appearance!)...

Read on the news today that Egypt's new leader, President Mursi, has just passed a law banning challenges to his decrees, laws and decisions and that no court can dissolve the constituent assembly and ordered the re-trial of a bunch of his opposition who were recently released.

Hmmm... And this is what the West had in mind with regime change last year then eh?!?!?

And onto different news, it's the work's Christmas party tomorrow.. Bit bloody early. Well, in truth it's a Pre-Christmas Christmas party.. Whatever that is!
Nice shot, Andy. Enjoy the pre-Christmas party and try to stay focused!

i think mursi didn't really play ball .... and the west should have known, he wouldn't

@tunes Thanks - no tripod, just resting camera on a wall using the lens lid under the lens for a bit of elevation... and hands gripping tightly on the strap :-)...

I remember saying last year beware what you wish for...
