  1. All the above, but make it Parrot proof, still waiting for mine to be returned, the Leica not the Parrot that is. (M eaten by Parrot) Osscat
  2. Can someone explain just what is disturbing, the child is holding onto his finger, my dad had huge hands and it was how a small hand could gain some sense of security while out in the city, and here the child is listening to some - presumably - music on his earphones. Couple that with what looks like a substantial hold-all on the guys shoulder I'd say there is not much to be disturbed about - except the apparent subjective prejudice.

  8. How about this Leica user (from the Telegraph article 100 yrs of Leica) HM Queen Elizabeth ll. Osscat
  9. Love the setting - obviously a craftsman - so much to see in this photo, it would be interesting to know his back story and the history of the shop. Osscat
  10. Window undressed. Osscat (not just any Osscat )
  11. You should know this one Steve from my early photos using Rodinal and TriX rated 1600 asa. It come up well innit? Osscat
  12. My comment was not in favour of flash, natural light wins for me, I do not think flash works here. Osscat
