Our Photo of the Month for August is Sunny South Sam from Steven Travers.

Steven writes about this photo

"As you can see, the photo is based on the iconic Southern Railways Poster - i’m taking an early holiday cos i know summer comes soonest in the south. Whilst very much an amateur at photography, it is part of a theme for photos involving my collection of O gauge, emulating famous paintings and iconic pictures, on a steam train theme.

The characters in the photo are;
Hornby O gauge Schools Class Eton loco
Hornby O gauge Signal Box
Hornby O gauge Footbridge
Hornby O gauge platform ramp
Hornby O gauge track
and a couple of reproduction figures"

The title refers of course to the character who features in much of the Southern's publicity of this sort -  Sunny South Sam.
