And here they are...

Finally, it's the World Cup photos. Well, some of them anyway, plus pretentious watermark of course. Like I said, these will be going into a book entitled a title I haven't thought up yet. Any suggestions would be very welcome indeed, answers on a postcard. I hope to have it sorted as soon as I can. Enjoy, i'll ramble more after the pictures, don't worry.

The idea was to look at the World Cup from the fan's perspective, people always take photos of supporters but you often don't see a product of their endeavours. Apart from Alistair Berg, who is a big inspiration.

Hopefully they work as well as I hope they do, my Dad and I had a good time taking them, so I hope you have a good time looking at them. When the book is finally done i'll post a link up here.

As for the man in the crazy hat, I had a photo taken with him. He would make you hold the phone and then he would say:

"Say hello to Mandela!"
"Hello Mandela?"

Needless to say, he was one of the highlights of the World Cup for me. He really got you into the moment, it was like I was really talking to the former Robben Island prisoner and all round good guy. I'd like to say Mandela liked me when I spoke to him on the phone.

Anyway, there's a small number of them, I may post more up but i'm not sure. Watch this space.

Think street photography draped in a football scarf.
