I know there are no bats in the actual picture but bear with me.

I had stopped to take a picture on the other side of this archway but it was, meh. Walking through the archway I heard this screeching like noise. Not sure what it was I walked on and as I went up the steps I realised it was bats. So, I turned around and captured this shot. Which I did like. With the people in the distance. The gentleman in the white shirt is actually holding about 6 bottles of champagne that he is then going to take over to the formal event I mentioned yesterday. The lady stops and takes a picture of the inside, because of the bats. Hmm pity my story is more interesting than the picture. But still doorway, black and white and actual people, so I like the picture. Probably could do with working on my “critical moment” some.

Ah this one was taken with the rather awesome 85 1:4D. Which weighs almost as much as the 24-70 (and thats a big pile’o glass) Sadly its the longest glass I have with me here in Sweden.
