More from Earls Court

Apart from the ocean rowers, my attention wasn't caught by much else at the Earls Court show last weekend.

However I was intrigued by the triangular sail for the kayak (above). It reminded me a bit of Arab dhows or the small boats used to cross the Pacific.

There were also a couple of authors there to sign copies of their works, but tend not to buy books this close to Christmas - just in case someone gets it for me!

I was more tempted by the beautiful photos on display at the Kos stand. Imagine the picture below blown up huge with a lovely frame......

Alas it was as expensive as it was attention grabbing!

More examples from their web site here.
