Re: Kingston Lacy details

I believe that the significance of the key in the 3rd image is that it's the key to Corfe Castle. The holder held the castle when it was besieged by Parliamentarian troops during the English Civil...

Re: Tripods

The oft repeated rule about choosing a tripod is:

Light
Cheap

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro
