  8. But, Bryan, it is atmospheric. It's got light, shade, movement, classic profiles, a trendy cap, the impression of a partial eclipse, a tangible sense of a crashing sea and a freezing wind blowing straight from the Russia; what more do we need look for in a great photo? In fact, it's so good, a caption contest almost demeans it.

    "Call that a fence! Sydney's CBD is currently encased by a 3.5 metre fence to protect the APEC members. 21 World Leaders are peering out of their courtesy cars wondering if they've accidentally been sent to Baxter Detention Centre..."

  27. Bryan, do you realise you manage to look grumpy & sceptical & armed even in low-light profile shots? Could you please put a subtitle to your blog: GRUMPY, SCEPTICAL & ARMED? Just for a week.

    i think you would be armed with a cosh and some sort of handgun.
