I could've called this 'Random pictures from my time in the UK', but where's the fun in that? The title is a reference to those old slide projectors.

Not everyone was amused

"You can take the girl out of Ohio..."

Name that London mayor

A time traveller from the future arrives in Trafalgar Square before it was pedestrianised. Fortunately he brought his mother.

Penny for your thoughts

Big wheel keeps on turning

Sorry, the phone’s ringing

She caught it and lived happily ever after, at least until she sat on a pin

Beat of a different drummer, obvs

Thank goodness they're vegan

Great Britain still makes a damn fine bluebell

Honey I’m home

What fresh hell is this

"I'm an alpaca, not a llama, thank you very much.”

Badgers are hard to catch! Plus I was on my bike at the time.

Never surprise a bunny

“Took you long enough, I’ve been scratching at the door for ages.”

Thank goodness for online anonymity

Auntie would like a word

Mutually Assured Destruction for your neighbour

The last selfies they ever took

Pray it doesn’t sneeze

New heights in social distancing

Getting extra comfy in the great outdoors

There's fly tipping, and there's surreal

Statue of Rudyard Kipling in a nearby village. There may have been some photohopping in this one.



Put that in your tea and drink it

Ken Livingstone retired to a pirate life

Shouldn't have built on a flood plain

Wanted: dead or alive

What every churchyard needs

What my refrigerator needs (there is a severe underappreciation of root beer in the UK)

Give me your jabbed, yearning to breathe free

"You'll go far," he told her

You must be this tall to enter the ride.
No, this tall.

How did I take this selfie? Very carefully.

My country 'tis of thee

Albatross must be bored to go digging through the archives to find these old photos.  My favourite is the red phone box, when I used to work near St Pauls I would see asian brides posing in wedding dresses near phone boxes almost every day.  I must be in hundreds of wedding pictures all over the far east becuase I never missed an oppourtunity to squeeze into the picture.
