This is my offering to the photography gods. You have to realise that I took 300 pics, so have had to cull brutally :). Here is the slideshow with bigger resolutions and more photographs.
Directions to the zoo and the entrance.
The no entry sign was propped up on the cycle path sign. I wasn't sure if the sign was for no biking or the left or right path.
A tale of two sides to one road. Rows of lovely tall trees. Rows of ugly ass plastic warning cones.
Battersea Park, a lovely woodland scene.
Papa tree and baby tree?
Curiously shaped trunk.
Oh! I dont know!
Butterfly banquet but no butterflies I am afraid.
The bear family Robinson.
Goats have en evil look, i think its because of their strange eyes and horns.
But then you have these lovely potbellied Vietnamese pigs. Strangely human like faces even if a bit hirsute.
This was one of the cutest horses that I have seen, tiny.
Big balls of fluff, although those big red eyes are a bit dodgy..
What a job!, the lady has to go around picking up donkey, pig and horse poo. Well, I suppose it pays the bills and improves character..
This hare like creature was seriously disturbing. This fellow sat there very still and looked at me with a basilisk stare for over 5 minutes. OK OK.
How about these emu’s? I caught one blinking. Now that’s a scary looking picture. Zombie emu’s in London. Sounds like a D grade horror movie from the 50’s. Those eyes remind me of eagle eyes as well, lol.
No animal/zoo post can be without the proverbial feathered flying rats.
These are love birds, very sweet :) The two in the middle are called as Dolly and Bert :).
I just love Meer cats :) Their inquisitive curious faces are just brilliant. Wotcha doing there?
That’s mine, bugger off, its very tasty indeed.
New and old ivy growth.
Then we have a fight between two donkeys. No prizes for guessing who is the male.
Giant Land Snails. The damn things were longer than my forearm. But should be quite tasty lightly cooked with some Tabasco :)
The creature from the red lagoon.
I didn't manage to capture what Bob or Luca did, but i got eating, drinking and sniffing shots.
They look so miserable. Well, so would I be if I was to be left out in the cold, wet, dingy place and given a mange tout for lunch.
A croaking turtle
The birthday bricks.
A Buddha Pavilion outside the zoo, extraordinary.
Lovely lamp posts on the Chelsea Bridge Street Lights. What’s with the ship? And the winged bull on the shield?
This is a military memorial to the officers and men of the VI Dragoon Guards who died during the South African War of 1899-1902. Most wars are frankly stupid, but this war was particularly stupid, not one of our finest hours I am afraid. Particularly ironic to see this memorial here.
I am not sure that I will use that estate agent.
We had lunch at a pub which as Bob mentioned, is a Japanese landmark. Women wearing formal kimono’s, a whole bunch of Japanese women, all frantically clicking photographs of the pub. Extraordinary.
Having lunch in the pub.
Fair few bottles there.
Chocolate cake called as Assisted Suicide. Brilliant. lol
