Noticing good improvement in your shots Ian.
These I took last night:
Was a bit ropey at times, but in 6hrs I only got hit with bricks twice.
The whole set is (here) if you wanna see more ian (21 pics in total)

A bit of an accidental shot this one.
was trying to get some pics of some sparrows on a bird feeder, which really wasn't going so well.

Then I got to the Heugh, part of Hartlepool headland:
Is the ferry going to get it?

All taken with a Sony Ericsson k800i mobile phone (of all things).
