[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
So there I was cooking the Sunday lunch for the kids, chicken in oven, pans of boiling potatoes and vegetables. I had some time to kill waiting for everything to be cooked to perfection and noticed the well steamed up window. Used my artistic flair to draw my favourite puppet of all time and got the camera out.

PP work is a little crop and a lot of clean up removing blemishes etc., that window was dirtier than I thought close up! Dropped gamma slightly and sharpened the image. Then the usual frame and resizing.

Hope you like it,

Hi Neil,
A good father, a good cook, a good draftsman, a very good photographer.

Cheers for the beautiful light and tones! Very nicely done

Amazing Idean and really good focus Neil, grat compo, tone colors and nice framing, well done.


Hello, Neil,
Zippy made me smile in the morning, I am sure my day will be brighter now :)
This is a very interesting and amusing idea of yours. I like the way light is refracted through the glass, appearing in pastel tones.
Regards, Evgenia

Hi Neil
Great photo! Excellent use of the medium - fog-on-glass - and a very good capture of your 'artwork.'
Fact: I loathed Zippy. He was an idiot. But then Geoffrey was an insipid twit and don't even get me started on that other fool Bungle ... but the theme tune of that show resounds in my head even now, and as cheerfulness goes, it can't be beaten.
Thanks for sharing. You made me giggle.

haha very funny, good pic! tfs Joke

good improvisation... god havent thought about this charachter or quite a while.

nice one.

Bit of artistic licence used here giving Zippy one ear! I don't remember him having any. Apparently Jeffrey now stocks supermarket shelves for a living, how the mighty have fallen.
Great original idea for a photograph.
