Bloody hell there's TWO of them :shock:

3 if you include the phographer - GM, You DID take that photo yourself I hope :lol:
Lol In 1996 I took Carol and her mum my sweet wife to New Zealand for a holiday and my Daughter lent us her BMW and we toured the North Island and I took her to my primary school where I was the school dunce. Yes no fibs or lie I was the school dunce as I never learnt to read and write until my early teens. They were two seperate photos taken under each school gate post and I used my printer to scan them to my computer as one photo. Technically I took the photos, and all my wife did was to push the shutter twice.

Thank you Curly its been a great honour to win a photo contest such as this. I have never seen so many high class photos in the one spot.
And I feel privileged to have been chosen the winner from among all of them. I would in accepting this award like to dedicate it to
Bri who has been my greatest supporter and without his dedication and work in ensuring my works of art were displayed on
here enabling my devoted fans to ooh and arr my works of art. Thank you Bri. Your help has been much appreciated.
I would also like to thank my father and mother and my brothers and my sisters. For all their support.

After the luncheon for paticipants and guests I will be selling autographed copies of my school photo for fifty pounds each.
Thank you, thank you. Now lets go and eat.

Note that the above speech was only a practise version and any or all the words may be changed in the final version.

Note that this photo was in the days before the bikini was introduced to the world.
And was also in the days when the ladies had to bathe apart from the men.

I think I will post a couple of pics of a bridge now 8) ...had to go to Sydney for couple of days this week and as we got picked up from airport, I had the pleasure of taking some random pics as passenger....this is called the Anzac Bridge....it's the longest cable stayed bridge in Australia....quite a stunning bridge I thought. It's actually warmer by about 5 degrees in Sydney than Melbourne.

I have no idea why you can run faster in hotel corridors.
Someone else like a jealous husband might be able to tell you if he can run faster.

Great pictures Ted. We were thinking about moving away from the Nook to Norway. I was unsure as I don't speak the language.

Danet and Bamboo I think the Bridge pics great too =D> =D> =D>

Curly, I think you will have trouble picking a winner this month :D

Something a little different.

A face which tells the story of a hard life.
