To mjw364: Newcastle

Hi Mike

Glad you're enjoying your time in Oz. Newcastle is surprisingly pleasant for a coal port and ex-BHP steel town: great beaches and pretty colonial area around Cook's Hill. We lived there,...

To Glint: Belgravia

Hi Bev

"What would this attractive young woman want with that old man?"

Money, perhaps? She looks no better than she should be! I assure you, the eye contact was right there...

Glad you...

To tyro: Shelly Beach

Hello again John

Yep: a decent film scanner is a boon for oldies like us with a big back catalogue of trannies and prints. This by the way was the scan of a neg rather than a tranny. The scanner...

Hi Gilles

By PP, I mean "post-production", that is any editing that is done to the image after shooting: typically in Photoshop or similar. We used to use darkroom techniques, but of course it's...

To CLODO: Cut legs

Hi Claude

You're right of course about the legs, but you know street photography: it's about grabbing what and when you can. I didn't have time to step back or zoom out; maybe I should have...

Hello John

Hello Mesut

I think you've replied to the wrong person! I've met John Cannon, but he isn't me! Not to worry.

Hello Mesut

Thank you for the kind critique. You're right that the Nikon film scanner does a very good job (the one I use takes negative strips or transparencies). But I'm not sure it's...

Hello Viviane

That's really strange! It appears that you're seeing the new picture, but when I log on to my overview home page, I'm still seeing the old mug-shot. What can be happening??

Hello Paul
You're right: the music comes from adverts. The latest was an ad for Durex (!), also E45 handcream. I took a screen shot, but can't work out how to include it in this message. This...

Music

Hi Tecchies

Twice in the last couple of days when I've been surfing around TE, music (quite loud and intrusive) has started up, unbidden by me. It's not from another opened internet page on...

Hi Paul

Hello Gert

Thanks for your reply. Just for the record, here's a copy of a forum post I made a few months ago:

You and me both! I'm sure we all want to take images of famous, iconic places: it would be daft to go to Venice and come back with no photographs of Piazza San Marco! I've got my fair...
