Salt can be very flattering!

Oh dear, my knowledge of the Bible letting me down! Blame it on last minute preparations; I'm off to Vienna later this morning.

See you all when I get back. (I'll try to keep an eye while over there, but busy programme may make it a bit difficult.)

That's the ticket Jeff.

I'm still scratching my head over this one, but I'll think of something - I hope :)

I went for the straight salt and pepper shot. Wasn`t sure if you`d allow my colour version so did a B&W take which I don`t like as much but all I could do in time I had.

Afternoon Paul - from the brief "The objective is to create a monochrome image . . . ". But I bet if you entered a colour shot you'd still get loads of votes!

I wanted to do a coffee and cream shot, but for two rather important issuettes I would have done. 1) Mrs H recently broke the last white stylish coffee cup, and 2) I haven't got any cream :)
