London (and Nottingham) calling

Landed in London and was faced with the sad news of Amy Winehouse’s death. Then discovered that my camera’s motor had passed away too.

Oh well…there was still the cricket to look forward to. At least that’s what I thought then…until…oh, you know what happened.

I do tend to forget to take photographs when I am preoccupied, but here are a few of the cricket and in and around the stadiums taken with my crippled camera.

"Look daddy, those green thingies at the Oval!"

View of the lights at the Oval from the sidewalk outside

The Alec Stewart gate at The Oval

At the grounds around Lord's

The bat fixers' workshop near the Nursery end

If he wasn't 6ft 8in tall, the crowd would have prevented me from getting this shot.

Heading back after a very, very special net session

Followed by this other guy who also had a hit at the nets.

When HE lorded over at Lord's

And again...

Entrance to the W.G Grace pavillion, with the Lord's stewards manning the door

At last...

Gulp!

This was to become a familiar sight in the weeks to come

He had the bowling and the hair going at Lord's

Bye bye Cook...

..and hello, Pietersen!

Another shot of the pavillion...

Raina signs one...

That turf...perfection...

Gambhir is all smiles.

Wall-E

Wall-E from afar

Random shot of Lord's scoreboard

"Tendooooooooooooooo !!!"

VVS in the outfield???

Bat making demonstration by Gray Nicolls

Dravid...poetry.

Where is that headed? Covers? Midwicket? Only he knows

Ooops...wrong stadium...

And the entrance to this beautiful ground

Cozy...intimate...Trent Bridge.

The scoreboard at Trent Bridge

Bell, listening to advice from the crowd about how to walk off for tea

Larwood and Voce (gulp!)...and Randall (smile)

Trent Bridge with the lights turned on
