Welcome to the New Year

 On a grey and dull day I am going to say a big, bright THANK YOU to all my follows, subscribers and supports for visiting the blog over this last year. Views are up big time even though it has been a bad year personally.

As is the custom for this time of year I have a new header picture that shows a hand picking up or putting down an Agfa Isolette I will leave it up to you how you interpret my intent. If any of you have any suggestion please share your thoughts.

As I sit here writing this, it is peeing down with rain, which has inspired me to set up my pinhole camera to make an image that will take eighteen minutes to expose. Not the longest exposure I have made but getting there. This is     the start of my rediscovery of the wonders of         pinhole photography and the Zero camera in         particular which I hope to use more this year         instead of leaving it in the camera bag. A new       years resolution of sorts!

   Talking of new year resolutions photograph wise     -  have you set any? I don't as a rule but this        year is  going to be different I have two things I    would like  to achieve one I have already              mentioned the  other is to spend more time in        the darkroom  printing, something that I can          neglect. I find it  difficult to spend anytime at all    during the  summer months in the darkroom I        do not like  wasting time inside if the weather is    bright and  warm, even in the evenings. I              suspect I'm not the  only one. What are your thoughts? 


I'm looking forward to seeing you all again this year. Don't be shy if you drop by - have a chat (leave a comment) - always interested in what you get up to. I shall leave you now as my mistress the darkroom is calling! I will chat with you all again later. Before I leave I would like to wish you all the best for the year ahead.
