Fungi from a walk in the woods in Walberswick in Suffolk. The bottom two are interesting as there were two lots of different mushroomy things growing out of the same patch of ground. I should have taken a photo of them in-situ as it was rather odd.
Rebogging this following a conversation with a student.
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 Messrs Moffat & Gatiss?
2nd September 2014: the first one for a while, as I had to update my computer to keep on using Tumblr. This is Greator Rocks, near Hound Tor.
Lovely. Was in the area summer and want to go back there again because I love it so much.

Visit to Felbrigg House yesterday to see the assorted rag-tag of lost and strays they have re-homed in their orchard. This is Mrs Chicken with her brood of little ones. She was very gentle eating out of my hand and called her youngsters over to make sure they got their share.

Quite - later in the year hopefully as we really needed darkess for the shoot I’ve not posted yet.

More cosplaying with khorazir and bit of bonus A Scandal in Belgravia minus a firearm …
The area around Queensway where we were doing the His Last Vow stuff is also rather like the area around Belgravia. It’s also the area near where I used to work so I know this …
If a cosplaying Irene and John would step forward before khorazir and I next meet in London then we could do this properly of course.

An out-take from the cosplay photoshoot at Leinster Gardens proving that like Mr Cumberbatch, khorazir also does her own stunts. To get one of the shots we had her standing on the gatepost when the rubbish skip behind wouldn’t hold her weight.

Cosplay with khorazir and actual visit to the Sherlock location of Leinster Gardens.
We saw the events of His Last Vow set here but we didn’t get to see Sherlock first visiting it long before his injury and to scope it out as a helpful location.
Coincidentally, while we were standing around discussing positions and camera angles my friend Kevin (the train driver and all round London nerd) rang up. I was just saying we needed his advice! and yes, he told me to go round the back of the building and carefully hold my camera over the wall when I heard a rumble. I did so and got a lovely shot- meet one of the new Circle Line trains passing under Leinster Gardens.

Interesting day in London with khorazir yesterday hunting more locations and doing a bit of Cosplay.
Here’s a photo portrait, taken in not very good light in the crypt at St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square. This could just be khorazir being artistic, or it could be cosplay of part of a great fanfic we’ve both read. Coincidently we are also both working from different artistic ends on this story; I’ve done cover art and khorazir doing chapter art). More about this when I have sorted out the photos and sent this photo onwards to the author of Sketchy.
