    Camera Bag ;) I do have a cheapo pin hole lens for my Pentax K-01 but got to say there's not nearly enough light in the UK at the moment to get much out of it!

    "Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et
    in pulverem reverteris."

    "Remember man that thou are dust and to dust thou shalt return."

    The first time my Grandmother heard this in English, after the changes made in the 60's, and finally realized what had been said to her all those years, she was quite indignant. Wish I could have gotten a picture of the palpable irritation on her face as she left the church that day.

    Don't give up shooting with your X's. I say meat, but I'm probably just showing my age.

    Plus I live with a vegetarian.
