    It's not low is it, good vantage point for photos and a spot of vertego.

    Couldn't let you see them, didn't want any confusion...

    If you go over on an evening in darkness, you also get the sound effects of planes! due to the ones that are going in and out of London Central ;-)

    I only saw one. I looked straight into its eyes, but I don't think it noticed me.

    You were noticed ... and deemed to cute / innocent / small to eat. It was probably waiting for a tempting morsel such as a purple pony or some chocolate.

    Purple is the best colour, so it makes the best snack?

    Because there is no apostrophe in "its" when using it in the possessive form (his, hers, its). It should have one, but it doesn't because the apostrophe is reserved for the shortening of "it is"
    Pedantic?
    Me?
    NEVER!!

    I know, I know. I do try very hard to ignore it but it is soooooooo hard.
    Besides, I'm not a brilliant techie so I have to be good at something - CVs and grammar (with a side serving of spelling) - that's what I do.
    Yes, I did see that one - it is obviously a typo but why on earth it wasn't picked up before they printed it out several feet tall is beyond me
