German WW2 paratroopers with MG42.

By paulbroad  
German WW2 paratroopers with MG42. Yorkshire wartime experience last August. attended all three days and a superb event. About 7000 images to process when I got home.

There are displays but also battle enactments in the main arena. This was from the invasion of Crete.

Goodness, 7,000 images. I saw a review of a new Canon in AP a few weeks back where the writer took 9,000 in a day. Where do you even start?

I used film for my first 30 years and don't suppose I took 9,000 images altogether! I have been digital since 1999 and according to my computer have around 45,000 images and a good chunk of those are my wife's) - that's "only" 2,000 year Smile Still many times what I would have taken on film!
