The story goes I finished this 11 year project the day before my wedding so I could use it in the photos. A mate's mate was in town for his 30th - he is a photographer by trade. We went to the v8 track for some photos - which I thought were for my own purposes. He then said he'd send them in and low and behold they ran them in the Feb issue

Wasn't my intention, but I'm really happy with it.
