He didn't get where he is today by stealing somebody else's catchphrase.

Random Photo

Here's another one I had fun with. I've held on to this one for quite a while before publishing it.

I took this picture about 18 months ago. It's (I think) a Japanese wedding. I was lurking around a temple at the time and my opportunist snapshot worked. Well nearly - beforehand, there was a chap in a suit standing in front of the groom, but with a little bit of Photoshop magic, he's now been removed.

What I like about it is the fact that the picture appears to be of the "fly on the wall" sort - a little capture of Japanese life. What I also like about it is the expressions on their faces. It's a happy day, but their expressions hint that just maybe the happy expressions are painted on - it's not easy to keep smiling all day for the cameras. Finally, the use of black and white just seems to work.

It'll end up on my gallery in due course, but is the first picture I've displayed that has had any Photoshop tweaking.
