Looks as if layers of paint have been applied liberally to the door with little regard for the condition of the handle and key plate.
Makes a great subject for you though, and the contrast between the to areas makes the sot for me.

You really get great detail from that camera, I have just got the G12 to replace my G9 and hope to get results like this.

An apology: Re: fluffy white bits

Thank you for the castigation you administered to me yesterday. I accept the admonishment with due humility. I hope you will understand when I explain that my transgression was inadvertent. My copy of the R.A.S. rulebook breaks off at the page turn after Rule 1 Paragraph 2(d) Subsection ii Clause 4 ("..... without the application of axle grease") and does not resume until Rule 7 Paragraph 1(f) Subsection iv Clause 9 (" ....... that leather thongs may be considered an acceptable substitute in an emergency.")

There seem to be several pages missing in between.

I have a hunch that these missing pages are the ones that we mulled over during that memorable meeting in Carlisle a couple of years ago. I recollect little except discarding a sheaf of papers in the bin outside the pub before heading for the last bus. They were completely illegible due to being rather damp and strongly Guinness-flavoured.
- Were they the Missing Link?
- When is the Bondage Division?
- Why is Big Aggie?
Perhaps it is about time we arranged another committee meeting to sort out these and other pressing matters.
