There was a comment at the IWMW2007 conference in York last week about how deceptive many photographs on university promotional websites are; for example, they always show deep blue skies with hardly a cloud in sight.
So today I decided to put it to the test.
The frontpage news headline on the BBC News website says “Flood crisis grows as rivers rise“, and the UK’s bad weather has been the number one topic of conversation for weeks (besides Beckham’s move to LA, of course. And the release of the final Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Lucrative Franchise).
So of any day this ought to be the one utterly, 100% honest photograph of the real St Andrews.
As you can see: glorious sunshine, blue skies, hardly a cloud in sight and the green, green grass of home.
It’s like this all the time!
