So far I’ve posted …
… and so here below are a few shots I captured in the evening during Day1 (yes, I’m that far behind now) If you would like higher resolution copies, ping me, or if these are OK, feel free to simply grab and reuse.

Looking at it on the map I realised we were a short walk to the Alan Turing statue, so suggested that we make a small detour there on the way back, and that is exactly what we did. So here is the Alan Turning special interest group …
and since I was holding the camera I’m not in it, so here is me (least you wonder, I’m the one on the right).
