Our Vocation #1 : Groundnut seller

President Bush managed to disrupt the whole of London today. Not only did he hold the airlines up at the airport, loads of roads were closed off to traffic around the central part of London. It was so annoying driving in town today. I couldn't believe it! Even the Queen doesn't get such a reception. So why then does it seem that Mr Bush is the most important man in the world...I don't think the people London really care that much. I don't really get it...explain please.

The 'mista bush' problem ... it's an enigma.

This is a very good picture, the point of view is very well choosen, love the DOF.
(As long as 'mista bush' does not have a clue where the Netherlands is situated on this globe than you know how I think of him...)

This is a wonderfully evocative potrait. There seems to be such sadness in the boy's eyes and a look of patient acceptance. You have caught his expression perfectly. So much better than any studio portrait could ever be.
This is a fabulous picture, you feel his pain looking at it. What a shame that George W didn't spend more of his eight years as US President finding ways to help real people like this rather than finding ways to start wars and kill loads of people. Then perhaps it would have been worth closing a few roads in London for his visit.
