Time for an update: I still use film, though. Not vast quantities, but I have a darkroom, and I'm not afraid to use it.

I enjoy every image I take: I hope you'll enjoy looking at them.

I have a longish drive ahead of me today, and Iím planning to stop regularly to have a short walk, and maybe take some pictures. Itís making me wonder how often we are so focussed on the destination that we forget to enjoy the journey.

Not just travel: it can be learning. When we get a new young photographer in the Critique Gallery, I am always reminded of when I was 14, and was soaking up as much information as I could find about cameras, lenses, developing, and even pictures. Sometimes it was frustrating, as Iíd mastered nothing and understood less: but there was joy in covering the ground, doing something new with every film.

Can I recapture some of that feeling with four nights away, in the time of Covid? Will the different surroundings inspire me, or will I spend the time sleeping? Iíll report back!

Words of wisdom . . . and signs of old age? Those days seem to be getting further and further away especially as there is so much new to learn these days . . . even if only to update the phone software!
