Hope you find them interesting.

Andrew this is the best set yet!

I really really like Ajar and Post-Mortem (especially Post Mortem!). Great light in Ajar, and the off-the-wall subject (harhar, geddit?) in Post-Mortem is brilliant! I could have seen either in a glossy coffee table photo book and wouldn't have batted an eyelid. Most excellent

Great set but Ajar wins first prize.

Best wishes, Kris.

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

Thank you Emma and Kris,

Glad you like these. Ajar seems to be coming out as the favourite. I was lucky with the light that day...makes a difference.

Best regards,

Andrew

Thanks Gareth,

Very pleased you appreciate the pictures.

The lens is an M42 Hoya 24mm 2.8. At £12.00 plus p+p it was easily my most expensive purchase (after the camera, obviously). I really wanted (want?) a Miranda KA fit 24mm but so does everyone(?) else so the e-bay prices are high. One went for £22.00 last week and it was affected by fungus!

The Hoya was a shot in the dark but is in almost as-new condition (one lady owner). With caps and a perfect hard case.

I find focusing very easy with it as the view through the screen is so bright and clear.

It's enabled me to take some favourite pictures but that may be coincidence as I really like my 28mm lenses most. These are more plentiful and less expensive.

This is a ludicrously long answer to a simple question, Gareth.

Best wishes,

Andrew P.S. Making a flying visit to the Principality's capital tomorrow afternoon, by train. Son wants to travel by a special service hauled by two type 67 locomotives!

Ajar does it for me, all great but something draws you straight in when you see ajar.

I'll join the ranks and say that Ajar and Post Mortem are the standouts for me.

They both have a great feel, although completely different from each other.

Another good set.

I don't want to sound like I'm jumping on a band-wagon, but ajar and post-mortem are great shots to my mind!!, with ajar edging it I think. Really great pic, and a great set. Again.

Sincere thanks to all of you for looking and taking the trouble to comment. Really glad you enjoyed them.

Strange no one took to "Worn Out" which I quite like (colours, sense of all the hands who have used the old brass door knob and screwed it back on..."

No more where these came from, I'm afraid. Even as I write bulldozers are poised at the gate. I even met a man from a French electricity company who'd arrived to read the meter. I helped him look round, but someone had nicked it!

Best wishes,

Andrew
