Disqualified before we start...

I wanted to enter the "life's a beach" with this photo, then realised I took it with my old Panasonic

Nah.. I only posted it for a bit of fun!

I did rent Ian's 300 f2.8 behemoth 4/3 lens for that holiday so I could post some Puffins or something...

Thank you, it's one of my favourites.

It was taken with a GM5 15/1.7 combo, it doing most of the work, I just point it!

The family and kids that made it were just walking away as I arrived and were very amused that I photographed it!

To quote HC-B, "To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart." Sometimes the content and composition just fall naturally, all I did was hop-up on a wall to shoot from an elevated poison.
