Cracking photo of the truck Roy, and looking at it I've just realised that the strange object down the far end of Maury Sough could be the end door from a tipper truck....

First one lacks scale, in the other two the model should be facing the camera. Back to the drawing board Roy,

I beg to differ about the person facing the camera. The photo is not of the person, but the location. The person is looking at feature as it should be in this record type of photo and it also gives some scale.
Well done Roy your superb photoes are correct photogenicaly

The guy is an utter pillock, as everyone knows, but like the court jester, he is tolerated and pitied at the same time.

Any chance You could change Your Xmas record? I hear the same damn thing
every... single... year...

I am personally going to make it my mission to show scale in something next year, and see if you chirp up with that particular gem.

Now, get off my bloody lawn you kids!
