I went to Welwyn Garden City this morning, the town of my birth. In 2020 they were celebrating their centenary, celebrations that were somewhat disrupted as I'm sure you can guess. To mark the centenary, a statue of Sir Ebenezer Howard was commissioned, and recently erected in the town centre. Many moons ago, I attended The Howard School, long since demolished and turned into a housing estate.

Pentax K-3iii, SMC Pentax "K" 28mm f/2 lens.

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

I love the hand - it has a suggestion of a life lived and knowledge gained. I don't know why, it just does.

The clarity in the third photograph is very good, helping the expression in his face that, once again, imparts a sense of sagacious.

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