#240 THE WEATHER

We talk about it every day. Meet a stranger and he/she will say - will this rain never stop or it's so hot today or I can hardly stand up in this wind or
it's going to snow.

So give me your weather pictures.

Closing date Sunday 19th July at midnight.

Good luck

Re: #239 Any line from your favourite song

Thanks Mel and thanks Big John.

As usual you are spot on Mel because it is the balloon in Bournemouth. Is there anywhere you haven't been to?

Now if I can only think of a subject. What about ........ ?

Re: Memories.....

Hi Was introduced to a darkroom by my best friend of 30 plus years who is no longer with us. He had a cupboard in the kitchen of his parent's house which he used for the purpose so had hot and cold water. Just enough room for two people and the one to make magic. When I eventually managed to get the...

Hi Folks Well a nice assortment of images here so thanks for taking the trouble to send them in and thanks Big John for the reminder on Facebook.

#232 JUST GET ME THERE

Hi folks

Seems that maybe we are getting a bit stale or setting themes not too popular or maybe difficult to do(?).

So your challenge, should you accept it, is to give me means of transport. Not had that for a while.

Ends should we say midnight 2nd February.

Cheers Andy.

Such a pity that you got such a poor response my friend. Maybe the time of year when we aren't so happy.

Re: THINKING CAPS PLEASE ( NEED ADVICE ).

Thanks John. My thinking was 95% against the lens and you have added the final 5. Pity as the lens gets pretty good reports.

THINKING CAPS PLEASE ( NEED ADVICE ).

Hi everybody

I have always thought that it's best to avoid buying a lens with 'fungal' problems but one for sale has got me thinking.

A Sigma 17-50 mm F2.8 at a reasonable price ( £70 ) with 'minor' fungus which is speaking to me BUT is it a bargain or
white elephant?

Your opinions please.

Re: #229 A LITTLE NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY

Well a bit disappointing this time with only the five entries.

My favourite is by Mike Forrest with the Chorley shot. The lines from the cars really add to this image.

So - over to you Mr Forrest.
