    You rule breaker you! ;)

    I can’t even do this good by following the rules, so I’m greatly impressed!

    Great effort, M. You’ve inspired me to break the rules! ;P

  • Rules are there as a guide, need to challenge them sometimes.

    It looks like Goliath or Bigfoot left his rubix cube on the stormwater outfall ;-p Amazing how well you got this to stitch, must have been a bugger to maintain the axis point!

  • Fast shutter spped and a deep breath. Cheers Jimmy
