Photo policy

A collection consisting of nothing but full frontal photos of Tax Posts would be very boring. (Some will say that any collection of Tax Post photos is boring.) Anyway, wherever possible I like to include distracting foreground and background detail in my pictures.

My mother always accused me of making my subjects 'dots in the distance'. Thus this one in Woldingham Road - edited to show where the Post is. In the original the Tax Post is a full 4x20 pixels. Isn't that big enough?

If a photo caption disagrees with the description in the list then the latter should be taken as the correct version.
