The rest of the pictures (well, most of them)

OK, I promised them and here they are. Same rule as before, reverse chronological order (roughly) from top to bottom (so best viewed from bottom to top). You might notice that some of them fall between earlier ones, as I had limited space and time while on tour and so I had to select sparingly - thus the earlier ones here fill in spaces in time between those I first posted. I have not selected those which show me in the best light as a photographer (that will be obvious enough from looking at them!) but rather those which I think best capture the sights/events/atmosphere/whatever. Also I need no reminding that those who've had lots of practice smiling for cameras are better at it than me. This is by no means a complete view of the tour. Perhaps it could be filled in a bit more by also putting in video stills, but that will take much much longer (and may in fact never be done here). But for what it's worth, I hope you enjoy these pics.

Cheers.
