Good Day to you all…

Firstly thank you all for your wonderful comments, messages and votes following my 'Funky Chicken' upload yesterday with a further mention going to Jukka for his User Award.

I've been in Worthing for a week now and I don't know where the time has gone. The weather over the weekend has been terrible to say the least so it was a matter of a little indoor photography to keep me out of trouble. These three delightful chaps were very obliging allowing me to photograph them in all their finery.

Although technically it was not a difficult image to capture I was drawn towards the colour and the reflections in the mirror. Furthermore I think the image will make a wonderful Christmas card.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me who knows it's still chucking it down..

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrinGrin

Well done for 'improvising' while the weather's inclement.
I think you'll be doing some more of that, with Storm Emily on the way.
