I am pleased you chose to view my work. Welcome, and enjoy. I try to keep up with things, but the problem grows for us all with new contacts. If I miss you out, my apologies and I will try harder...

About

Distinguished gent(?) with a camera. Digital seems to be all the rage so I bought a Nikon Compact. This little Nikon is not bad for 5 million pixels, but my daughter upstaged me with a Fuji which has about 10 million. So maybe I will progress. I do like film and use a Mamiya 645. Soon though, the film will all be gone I'm told. I started with Pentax K1000's. So I can't get film... they will look nice in a display case. Digital is the thing then?

I am also a reasonably expert 'wood-butcher' and I love making sawdust and plane shavings; retired actually. I can't look at a tree without wondering how many tables I could make from it. I use mdf now though 'cos I'm also a conservationist. I am old-fashioned too, but I don't discriminate. I'll open doors for either gender. So I am no 'shoveanist'! I am tempted to take shots of female models, but my wife wouldn't go much on the idea if it was any more than portraits. I do hope you enjoy my pics and thanks for stopping by.

Stay Lucky people.
Alex...

If a lens has a front and a rear surface... How many layers are in between?
