I think it is tremendous pity that the APUG galleries aren't regularly populated with such 'mundane' images. This would enable us to fully appreciate the truly original and interesting images which we see on a daily basis there.
Possessing a thick skin, on my return from Cornwall, I shall do what I can to put my pictures where my mouth is and post a few far more mundane images than the one Robert has suggested we discuss.
In the meantime I shall direct my energy positively to making some pictures. I've heard that this process can be even more enjoyable than spending time in a web forum.
