I think this photo kinda speaks for itself.

There is not much to say about this shot. Yes, it is a montage from four different shots put together in Photoshop. Does this constitute a real photo? There is always a great deal of argument on the subject of whether a photo, after you change it significantly, is still a photo or more like digital artwork. Essentially I have used a program to make the picture. I certainly didn't shoot it, as I don't have 4 arms! So does it count as a photo?

I think that is a discussion for another day (it has been a long one. Nik and I have been over her families’ house for Father's day and the wine did flow). For the moment I am content to post it.

For the future, it looks like a trip to London is on the cards for my mate Minty's birthday. He lives near the centre of London, the lucky git, so I hope I get the opportunity to take some photos while I am there.

The weekend has flashed by. I did work my backside off again so I haven't seen much of it, but I loved today.
