The change in the background is rather interesting (I thought I'd left a dock around here somewhere :-) ).

David Jones (original shot of Cubby on the R there) was really very good, wasn't he?

Excellent comparison shots. (Did Niall finally tick it then?)

@Jon: That shot of Cubby is the best shot of Dumby there is I reckon. So good.
@Fraser: His hand slapped the top but gravity the took over. You don't get any closer. It's now all down to slapping the right part of the top. Possibly next time.

At the time we just didn't realise how far ahead of the game Cubby was. After all he wasn't from The Peak. Chapeau!
