Singer
 Singer   by Bill Eatock  (.)
I was bored and decided to play around with my camera and an old tiny matchbox car. Here's the result. I parked it up outside our house! I used to work at Singers and thought it would be fun to see a singer van in a street again.

I've only just discovered my own photo. I hadn't realised it had been published!
Sorry for late replies. I used a program called IP Photo Plus to insert a photo of a matchbox toy. IP Plus has an 'enhance' feature called 'clone' Its just then a matter of fiddling around until everything fits. It takes quite a bit of patience and time.
