It's all a bit irrelevant (and of course it's now the 3rd post in a row that email readers won't be able to make sense of unless they visit the website), but I thought I'd share a photo that a friend of mine took whilst on his recent European Tour:

Chris from work (aka Lord Science) spent a couple of weeks tripping around France and Italy, and snapped this picture in Palermo. It's a guy who would sit out the front of the building Chris was staying in every day, and either smoke heavily or beat his dog with a stick.

Aside from feeling sorry for the poor dog, I really like this photo, because you feel like you can guess so much about the guy by his dress and posture, and yet you can't see his face.

You've got to admit though – excellent shoes !!
