A Merry Christmas to you Peter. I hope you're keeping well and the move to Tier 3 works out all right for Brentwood.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

YES -- in Tier 3 now and I am 'Vulnerable' -- I go out on my 'Exercise to Beat My Cancers With Old Cameras' being careful not to breath in any air from the Great Unwashed Brentwood Public ---

Maybe a wider issue than Brentwood, Peter. The pub/restaurant I used this week in Basildon had only one bottle of sanitizer at the far end of the bar room. No floor markings for a one way system. In fact, it was the weakest attempt at social distancing I've seen since the tier system kicked off. So I am not surprised that infection rates down there have risen.

Stay safe, keep a positive attitude and please keep posting genuine photos. Your input is greatly appreciated.

All the best for Xmas & New Year.

p.s. back in Essex mid Jan 21.

Best regards

Happy Christmas Peter, and keep safe. I always enjoy seeing your film images.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Hello, Peter.
Your determination to keep your old body systems active is an inspiration, and you're producing great results from your old cameras, lenses and films as well!
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You and All!
