Christening Photo

This large snap hangs outside a photography shop on Main Street Corfu, designed to show off the quality of their printing and enlarging.

The little chappie doesn't look at all happy and there is local merriment over how, one day in the distant future, he will be less little and possibly less than happy at having been displayed tout nu to all and sundry.

Ideally, the photo will be judged so splendid and the event so august that it will stay there 'til it ages and wrinkles and fades.

Then one evening he'll be parading his best girl and they'll be passing by and the babe will say "Oh look, isn't that you? You haven't changed one bit."
