Re: Partial lunar eclipse...

Good one Mark!

Here's my attempt, a one second exposure with my E-M1 plus 12-60 in one hand and my cat in the other; he'd followed me a quarter mile down the road and I caught him as I didn't want...

Re: A Parable of The Millennial Son and the Wood Burning Stove

Sounds familiar. My bedroom was above the garage too so no warmth from below. We did get central heating eventually but that was solid-fuel fired so had a tendency to go out.

Re: A Parable of The Millennial Son and the Wood Burning Stove

My sister always says that wood warms you twice - the first time when you collect and prepare it and the second when you burn it!

I burn ovoids on mine which the local coal merchant sells at 14...

Re: A Parable of The Millennial Son and the Wood Burning Stove

Youngsters have always known best, Nigel, we have to accept that. When I moved north in 2002 the house I rented only had a couple of pretty useless electric storage heaters and an open-grate...

Re: Strange 'phone calls!

I've had the occasional call from a number which appears to be from my local exchange as it starts with the same 5-digit 01nnn code. But the sixth digit was 7 and there are no numbers with the local...

Re: A day in the diary of a BMW driver

Me too, and the Cortina was one of the worst cars I've ever driven. It took forever to get it started in the winter, and if you needed to brake suddenly you never knew whether you'd end up in the...

I think some of you have an aversion to extendable lenses which I can understand to an extent as it's irritating to see "the lens is locked - please extend the lens" message at just the wrong time. ...

Re: Honestly, do you like autofocus?

Velvia 50 is a tricky film to use as it's so high in contrast and its palette is so saturated. With the right subject it's wonderful stuff but it can be prone to a magenta cast. Trying to print...

Re: Honestly, do you like autofocus?
