Mad Friday part 2 | Manchester Evening News
The photographer who got that classic Renaissance shot last year has gone out on the town again. There is a gallery. I'm not sure whether he's some kind of genius savant, or whether people in Manchester just naturally fall over and/or drop things in perfect accord with the Golden Ratio.

Dropped in to visit the ex-in-laws. It's been far too long. I still can't understand how she could ever give all this up, but that's okay: it's my town now.

Apparently you can hack my camera. This looks incredibly nifty. Has anyone else tried it first and did it brick yours before I risk mine?
