    I've been looking through my photos from Euro 2004 Portugal last year, and one photo that I've always just skipped over as being a very poor unfocussed shot (due to excitement of the 1st game against France and lots of drink!) turns out to be a coincidence. I took this during the anthems and as you can see we were sat not very far behind the commentators who all had monitors. The face in the monitor is Zidane, who went on to beat us in the end.
    I know it's a crappy photo, but the weird coincidence factor will make me keep this photo now - I won't tell the lads otherwise they will say it's my fault England lost ;)

    Its amazing the way the monitor image is crystal clear, no image interference that you'd expect photographing a TV picture, yet everything else is fuzzy.

    Must have been an omen of the things to come.

    I'm spooked. And scared now...!

    WOW, thats amazing. It's almost as if someone has superimposed the picture on it, not quite matching the TV shape in the process. Sppoky or what :)

    I think that's due to the resizing of the image as on the original you can see that the bottom and left of the screen appear much darker, I reckon it had those extensions around the screen to keep out the light and reflections.
    I can supply the original for anyone who doubts it :)

    I see what you mean. Sean, can you pass this on to Stuart? I wonder if this helps shed any more light on the search facility not working properly?

    You been scrapping again?
