|The South Downs, near Firle|
As you can see I printed that one in the darkroom - on MGIV Pearl. It came out OK - I'll stick it on the wall for a while.
There wasn't much going on that day - a few walkers, a few sheep and one or two people hanging around a hundred feet up in the air:
|Looking over the Sussex Weald|
As you can see we had good weather - it was pretty warm, being August and all, even though we were Up on the Downs.
|A fine place to find yourself|
The old clouds were good that day, weren't they? Not at all like the clouds we get in The Liberties, which seemed a long way away. These were Sussex clouds. Nice all the same, though. I printed that one too, as you can see, and it will eventually go on a wall as well. Well it might - or it might just sit around on a windowsill for a while. Time will tell. That's a straight print, by the way, as most of mine are at the minute. I'm not great at didging and borning (Ed: I think he means dodging and burning), probably 'cos I don't do a lot of it. But I'll get there...
I didn't print this one - but I reserve the right to at some point in the future, ok?
|More sheep on the downs|
Missy seemed to be enjoying herself - looking all glamorous what with her shades on and Kate's cardigan wrapped around her against the biting wind you get on the South coast of England in early August.

By the way, a friend on FADU posted a link to a video the other day which might be of interest to you photography types. It's of the work of Ken Keen FRPS - who is registered blind. Inspirational stuff. Click here to see it. Terry King was instrumental in helping Ken with the alternative processes he now works with - you can check out his work here and well worth a look it is too.
