F--k me, that's a great picture.

Well done.

That is a great picture, although I'm sure there used to be a public information film about the dangers of lying beneath an electricity pylon and taking photographs. Especially considering how damp the ground has been lately. We could have had a deep-fried Gorman on our hands.

I don't remember that public information film! I do remember the doll getting caught in the escalator (I had a phobia of escalators for years and still do a six foot leap off the end) and the fat lady watching the man drowning, Charlie says, and that really scary one about open water.

Nice shot, Dave.

Does that picture benefit from any computer trickery, or is it as is? It's really nice, as are your pics on Flickr. I sense another career beckoning… :)

So did you leave out the photoshop treatment? or did you Pile-it-on heh heh. I'm dead funny me.

There was definitely a public information film about flying kites near pylons (as if you would). I remember because my house was right next to some pylons when I was growing up, and anytime my dad suggested getting a kite, I'd scream 'Noooo!', thinking he was trying to do away with me and make it look like an accident.
I'm fine now though. Hasn't scarred me at all...
