Here you can view John's Pictures by category.
Back to the Maison de Stuff.
Rob has been like my right hand man over the years that John's Pictures has been evolving. A proportion of the pictures were actually taken by him, he's provided "artistic direction" at times, has added comments to several sets, not to mention the fact he has also appeared in so many of them. It seemed only just therefore to give him his own category. Also this serves as a record of the kind of reprobate behaviour the pair of us have got up to over the past few years.
