The image you see here was taken via a webcam situated on the corner of Bleeker Street and MacDougal Street in Greenwich Village in Manhattan. The guy standing by the lamp-post I’ve zoomed in on is Phil, who is on holiday in New York with Catherine.
So, why do I have this picture? Because we’re geeks, that’s why. Phil texted me to let me know they were going to be near the webcam so I could get to a PC to capture the images. I sat at my desk and texted him instructions 3000 miles away so he could look up at a (public) webcam, and wave to me.
