Why not

By gary_d
Looking over my shoulder when I was processing this my boy said dad why do you take photos of fence posts, my reply was '' why not '' his was '' your mad ''

Am I, you decide.

Taken hand held as are all my images and with a 1.4x extender fitted this does show how good this lens is.

Regards. - Gary

Thing is he's probably wired for sound and not sight Gary. This is brilliant, in the Rhondda a bit of Welsh wool would be attached.
