"Whilst Betty was taking the air in the glorious Kent country side that surrounded her village, she spied a wonderful vista worth capturing on her bejewelled Box Brownie, but as she looked through the view finder, down in the undergrowth, she saw Mr Smith the Butcher man-handling the soft white buns of Rita from the Bakery.
Poor Betty was so shocked, but still managed to capture the scene perfectly exposed."

Oh my word!
What would the Vicar say?

Super image (as always) here Anna and made all the better with the humourous words - getting to be almost the old saucy beach postcards.

I wish I had your imagination and talent

Superb imagination and creativity - there's humour but also a touch of surrealism I think, very unique.
