Certainly funny Walter, thanks for the link.

But ultimately just another example of a new artform being informed by what came before. Sure it's a parody, sure it's silly but so is the fact that there quite a few wannabe Ansel Adamses and ECBs out there.

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's photographs are "a bridge that spans the widening gulf of time" (Michael Hiley 1979, 5).
