Philippe and Philippe would like to thank the jury for their kind 
remarks and honours
They also would like to congratulate both Bobs, together with Richard 
and every contestant.
Both Philippe and I found the theme very difficult,  and we understand 
that some may have been put off as a result.
This is probably why Bobs and Philippes worked in teams.
We also noted that some very worthy photographs could and should have 
been placed ahead of ours. But isn't the jury sovereign?

A last remark about Fate before we make it to the Kilimanjaros: it was 
shot on slide, long ago, but badly processed on a flatbed scanner and 
processed in 8 bits as we still haven't got a proper copy of PS or CS. 
The rest is just make up to focus the attention on the character. Sorry 
for the poor quality and not up to standards result.

Thanks again all
Phil...x & Phil...x
