Well, I’ll Be A Son Of A BeachPhotographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON
Let me just channel your thoughts here. You’re probably thinking: "For a bloke who never enhances or Photoshops his images, David has finally succumbed."
And you’re making note of the fact that the colours of the beach, the sweep of the sand, the great vista of the sky are all point towards the "I tweaked the shot" factor.
You’re going to report me to the Reality Council because you think I’ve tricked up a standard beach shot.
But it’s been great fun stringing you along. You see, a couple of weeks ago, I was walking through Southbank and noticed this image on the side of a wall. No, it’s not a beach. It’s a painting of a beach. And it’s just one part of a segmented mural.
As soon as I saw the beach segment, I zoomed in on it because I wanted to test you. This, my dear friends, is the whole mural, in totality, pictured below.
Y’all don’t be making a scene now!
