Is there anyone here working in the Sydney CBD, Parramatta or Richmond? That seems to be the only places today's mock terrorism attack would occur.

I'm guessing those people would have included the word 'chest' somewhere in their search string in the near vicinity of the word 'puppy.' :)

Good call!

I sometimes throw in some of the popular tags for kicks. Regardless of whether the photo actually has any of those things in it. The views usually rise somewhat substantially :lol:

Oh they are there alright :|

Maybe you should pursue marketing instead of urban development....

And Kittens could be a secret keyword for something else explicit too... :p

Is that right, Mrs Slocombe?

Hang on, that wasn't kittens, was it..

No exif makes Warren a sad Panda.
I quite like this shot Angus.
The expression of indifference/nonchalen​ce even when 50 mics are shoved in his face.

First one seems a tad soft on him and over sharpened on the microphones. The black and white one looks great, albeit a tad over sharpened.

Yeh, need to fix my BW Preset, it sharpens a tad too much. I think the softer one the focus point was on a mic :(
