Cheeky, originally uploaded by Teacher Dude's BBQ.

I was inspired to take this after reading the following while drinking coffee in the centre;

"Hargreaves also retells the story of how the snobbish Cecil Beaton, who always tried to distance himself from mere newspaper photographers, was outwitted by one of them. During the Blitz, Beaton was carefully framing St Paul's Cathedral in the ruins of a burnt-out shop, with the twin towers seen through the arch.

A press photographer approached, then slunk away when Beaton gave him a surly look. But when Beaton returned from lunch with his pictures still undeveloped, the press photographer's version was already on the front page of the Evening News."
