A different angle on our holiday cottage's security personnel. It's all about the placement of the background figure.
Last Sunday some people seemed to assume that I might have planted the sunglasses. Not guilty, M'Lud! This is the work of the cottage owner, who is maturing into a Great British Eccentric. It's the fact that reality provided the scene ready arranged for me that I love.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Yep, the placement of the BG figure works really well Moira, but the Spider about to crawl up His Nose, works even better Smile

Thank you and a Very Silly Sunday to everyone. I briefly considered getting rid of the spider. But only briefly.

The background image looks like a meerkat Wink. As for John spotting that spider, wish I had eyesight as good as his Grin Carol

Stone me Moira, he doesn't half look familiar. Very fine chiselled features, with a stone faced expression.

Thanks to everyone who has called in here today! We've had a long day out and I have a lot of catching up to do, so my apologies for very little time on the site.
The weather has at last felt like spring. It was great to actually enjoy being out of doors, and also to get a little bit of new material.
Cheers everyone,
Moira
