Zev Hoover, aka Fiddleoak, is a young and fantastically talented photographer. I used to have to do this the hard way with double exposures and a dark room and even at my best I couldn’t hold a candle up to this 14-year-old. He has a fantastic career ahead of him if he keeps this up!

Chosen tube for the day :

This will probably disappear one day, only to pop up again from another uploader, as they do, but fitting in with the ‘on this day in history theme is "I want to hold your hand", by The Beatles:

{ The Beatles: I want to hold your hand }
