"And Another Thing"

By BlueRoom
This one comes with a nod to Phil (Backbeat) whose splendid ‘Stitch In Time’ has carved out a little niche somewhere in the dark recesses of my brain where his near neighbors include Robert Crumb’s ridiculous ‘Keep On Trucking’ men. You would have to have been a hippie in the 60s to remember them, and I know there won’t be many of you still prepared to admit to that. Smile

thanks for the nod eric, but this is far, far superior to the image of mine you mention...

I see you haven't got your new chairs yet then. In our house we think this is a bit 'Norman Rockwell'. well, Lady Marian does and she's better educated than me. It's a damn fine pic and at last the world can see you as those of us that know you do!

Thank you all for these wonderfully enthusiastic comments. I thought I'd got a pretty good one here but your comments have surprised me.
Well done Sara, you beat Mr Pooch by a whole inch and a quarter. Let's hope he doesn't come back with an even longer one.
And Moira, you were the only one to own up. You didn't have to you know. Smile

One of those shots I keep coming back to look at. It has that slightly surreal feel and look of a Beryl Cook painting. Intrigued as to how you achieved the mono effect in this.
