Very pleased to have headed up this week’s selection of ‘Painterly Mobile Art Monday No. 22’ on Geri Centonze’s site with my Battle of Waterloo image. Nice selection of work and shows how versatile and creative mobile photographers can be with a variety of textural photo apps.

Every year, just down the road from where I live in Belgium, grown men and women dress up and play soldiers in a field outside the town of Waterloo.
