John and I went for a wander around Blackpool today and on our way home we bumped into this gentleman. You'd be forgiven for thinking that we terrorised him into posing, but the interaction was a bit stranger than that.

John said (something like) "can we take your picture?" and this guy, without saying a single word, sprang into this rather startled pose. We both took a photograph, thanked him, he smiled, and we walked home.

And I did have a few other things I wanted to say this evening, but it's been a really hectic day so I'll talk about most of them tomorrow. One thing I would like to say though: following being featured in the North West Enquirer (which I mentioned yesterday) we were also featured in the Metro today, so if you've visiting chromasia for the first time, after reading about us during your daily commute, welcome :-)
