Re: "That back-to-front lens hood" - Post yours here.

Use 'dry silicone spray'. I spray it onto a tissue and wipe the contact surfaces. It works a treat and avoids the dust from graphite. Also wipe it on to the extending barrel of a zoom lens to avoid...

Re: Frosty and foggy

I'm glad you didn't reduce it to B&W. The hint of colour makes it something special.

Re: Holding up the wall. ;-)

Re: 100 Word Story

'The Umpire' is the Unix/Linux command line utility wc, which says 101 words!
