Due to an act of world leading arsey these posts will now trickle to a stop. England has passed the orphan bill which effectively takes the ownership of photography, illustration, ideas posted on the internet out of the hands of the creators and presents it to anyone seeking use of said artwork without permission (IE- for FREE) so long as they have had a look for the actual copyright holder... how you prove that you 'looked' is anyone's guess. Luckily, for a price, you can register EVERY piece of artwork you post, or have ever posted with a newly created central agency. It used to be that if you created something it was yours until such a time as someone paid you to use it. With this new bill you must now pay for a right that you already had to be protected from a threat that the removal of that right has introduced
I had an episode of the twilight zone playing in the background as i worked and happened to glance this marvel of facial construction.

The trouble with waving your fingers at the gas man with your all singing all dancing multi-fuel stove is you have to get out in all weathers looking for logs. When you have a bike and bogey set up the 'all weathers' part of the deal becomes most unfortunate. On this little voyage (depicted above) I was pulled up by a police woman on a horse, laughed at by urchins next to the football pitches and harangued by a man in a green van who assured me 'I own all this' before driving off as I was approaching him with a bribe. It's not all Felicity Kendal out here is the drizzle.
