And walk together down an English lane

Stu's latest Tuesday Challenge involves not using the viewfinder of the camera to set up the shots; basically, return (if you have a camera that ever left!) to the days of point-and-click.

So there’s your challenge. Take a bunch of photos without using any kind of viewfinder or checking the images on the rear screen afterwards. Post your best one of the week!

I can't decide which of these I prefer; the straightforward view

the catch-it-as-it-happens with an unco-operative subject (which would have been great if I hadn't cut off the end of his tongue)

or the worm's eye view.
