#QEDCon – Sat 12th April – just Rob’s pictures


Once again, this is simply me stealing a small selection of some of the fantastic photos taken by Rob so that you get a quick 30,000 foot view of what has been happening. Tempting as it might be to actually type in some notes … nah, I’m too busy enjoying it all, I want to pay attention.

It’s back … you know that you are in the right place when you find this …
