I keep turning up these photos from the Sherlock cosplay session I photographed in London in January. We’d lost @eyes-like-the-afghan-night-sky by that point but khorazir was still with me.

Here we have our detective doing some running repairs to his coat during a case when Mrs Hudson isn’t about to help out.

Living in a flat above shops, and near the sea, I am living in a colony of breeding seagulls. At the moment all the roofs around are covered in nests and squeaky gull chicks.

George Zucco’s Rathbone Era Moriarty from the 1939 film "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" versus Sherlock’s Charles Augustus Magnussen from His Last Vow.

Seems the B/W era film also had Moriarty on trial at the Old Bailey and attempting to steal the Crown Jewels … Nothing is ever new is it Mr Gatiss?

I realised that the computer at work hadn’t posted khorazir's cosplay of Sherlock's little snack for letsdrawsherlock. The challenge is around mealtimes, and the location is round the corner from Bart’s at St Sepulchure. This is the church you see from the roof when Sherlock and Jim are having their little chat. Sorry it’s late!

Finally getting the photos up from the last bit of the Sherlock cosplay photo shoot done with khorazir and eyes-like-the-afghan-night-sky. This time we turn to The Blind Banker and here we see Sherlock and John on their way to visit Sebastian at Shad Anderson.

Waterloo Sunset


They keep building new buildings in the City and changing the skyline. Because of the Cheese Grater you can’t see the Gerkin anymore and then there’s the Walkie Talkie which keeps melting cars that park beneath it …

Not so good, but since the most common vocabulary size for non-native English speakers is from 2,500–9,000 words, at least I’m in the average. Test Your Vocabulary.

33,700
(Yes, I’m bragging. There aren’t that many things in life I’m good at; amassing English vocabulary is probably at the top of the list, though.)

36 900
Not entirely bad for a non-native speaker, although there were words on the list I’d never heard before. Did well on old and obsolete terms, though, thanks to reading lots of Tolkien, I guess. Learning Latin at school helped, too, with some.

39,400
I AM native so I should be decent at it (even if I am also dyslexic). Think I might send the test it in the direction of bf as he graduated from Cambridge with a first in English.
