The bar is set high in the Where's Nifty thread, good stuff, but I'm going to have to get ready when my turn comes.

I've picked up my own fifty not too long ago so I'll be doing a little side-x-side comparison between mine and the migratory lens as well since many people on the site here talk about good copies vs bad copies of lenses. And I'll be sure not to mix them up.

The Euro nifty is a better copy than the 1.8 I've got. I did upgrade to a 1.4 after hosting nifty last time.

Thank you very much Joayne. :-) I'm working my way through them with the processing!

This terminal is only for British Airways. There are also some cool things on the other side of customs such as a large giraffe sculpture which I looked for but couldn't shoot as I wasn't flying.

Underneath the bridge is a bike rack.

I preferred the b&w of this, but also liked the yellow luggage tag that someone had stuck to the handle.

This was the pipes on the side of the terminal in the smokers courtyard. They go up five floors.

That's the end of the Heathrow images! I still have some Cirencester Cemetery to process and the Roman Ampitheatre in Cirencester. Plus I have quite a few from Windsor and Eton that I visited on the way home from Heathrow.

On my way home from Heathrow, I stopped at Windsor for a couple of hours to take pictures of the hundreds of swans on the the river Thames, the outside of Windsor Castle and visit Eton where the world famous boys school is.

Some of the swans, all of which belong to the Queen.

There are benches all around the perimeter of the lawns...probably to discourage people sitting on the lawns.
