Black Peter and friends

Just a post to show Puma2's work up around the local area over the last couple of months. Hope they're of interest.

First and last shots stand out for me Rick - a fine set all around though. 'Black Peter' really does look fantastic. :clap:

Lovely photos, and an interesting (and quite sad) story behind the black puma!
