Rule Brittania

Since today's the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, I have yet another excuse to post this picture, taken by yours truly in a moment of daring in the crypt at St. Paul's in London, where you're not supposed to take pictures because it's a. either disrespectful to the people who are buried there or b. because flash photography will hurt the tombstones or something to that effect.


If you couldn't already tell, I'm pretty proud of this picture.


Of course, if you want to know what actually happened during the battle, go here for Robbo's account. The Big Hominid has chimed in as well.

Woohoo! I've seen that. I should have risked the picture. I capitulated and bought the souvenier book. And a couple of fizzies.

Great photo, BTW.

Wow, you admit to taking that picture in contravention of the law? I can't believe it. I'm so gonna nark on you to the Society for the Protection of Dead British Stuff. You can expect a good thrashing with a tightly rolled umbrella delivered by a stout old woman in a tweed suit and very sensible shoes. The good side, though, is that she'll bring tea!
