What's the story behind the 9/11 photo? - I can't find it on-line - which probably has more to do with time and bad searching than anything else.

I'm not sure which one you mean?

Did you not post it? The chap on the viewing deck, presumably of the first tower to be hit, with the plane flying toward the tower. I thought it was you.

Ie you who posted it, not you in the photo.

The thing is, that for the photo to be real, the camera must have survived, which seems unlikely.

Oh! Sorry. Yes. Sorry. My brian hasn't woken up yet.

I've read bits elsewhere and apparently he only sent it to one person - a friend - and it ended up going round the world from there.

I'm so glad it's fake. Not because of the image, so much as the thought of the camera surviving the inferno.

Ta.
