    great image! a version of being ambidextrous as a humorous aside! Nice work!

  • or even ambi-pedarian :-) all the boats (mainly carrying sightseers) on this river were rowed in this fashion – quite logical when one thinks about it – can keep busy doing something by hand while rowing – try texting with your toes for example! – thankyou Phil, glad you like the shot
