Time to spill the beans

Time to do the "Unseen UK" thing. This was a photo competition organised by Royal Mail in order to produce a book which was sold to raise funds for a childrens hospice charity. Very laudable. However, the selection of the photos seems curious. My theory is thus. The judge got all the entrys laid out on the floor. Then he got his guide dog to walk all over them. The ones with paw prints on them were then selected for the book. I didn't even have to refer to my beloved Wikipedia for this one. A look at a simple dictionary tells me that unseen means things that are unusual. Or the other meaning is the total opposite. Isn't english a wonderful language. Things that are so common we don't notice them.
