  1. However, caveat emptor still remains a potent factor, as illustrated by that much publicised case a few years ago when a Turkish man's face was used to promote Greek yoghurt, and IIRC he was awarded substantial damages. Alan
  2. It was bad everywhere. The streets of London were paved with solid ice for weeks. I lost count of the number of times I slid and ended on my bum while walking to school. Alan
  3. If it was beside the canal then it wasn't the Blue Teapot. I couldn't think of a café actually by the canal but I don't often walk that stretch of canal. Alan
  4. I live in the North. I'm even more susceptible to his incursions. Alan
  5. Then take along a change of clothes for her! Alan
  6. Damn! I should have photographed my shirt. Here are my three: A serendipitous juxtaposition: A quiet street in Sowerby Bridge: Carousel on London's South Bank: Alan
  7. And just to confuse matters further, the Bridgewater Canal is not in Bridgwater. Alan
  8. Tell me about it! I spent three years in Germany, not speaking a word of German when I arrived, and I sometimes found myself wanting to beat my head against the wall in frustration at not being able to convey my thoughts adequately. I think people often don't often take this into consideration when talking to foreigners. You can be the most accomplished conversationalist in the world but if you only have a very limited vocabulary it counts for nothing. Neli, you're doing fine so far. Alan
  9. From her portfolio I would say she's in Tatarstan, Chuck. Alan
  10. I was using RawShooter, on which LR was partly based, for a couple of years before that. Alan
  11. That should be absolutely fine. If you're not already doing so, I would recommend shooting in RAW and converting to JPEG after processing. Alan
  12. Very useful question, John, because I'm in exactly the same situation - not through choice but because Virgin have just upgraded their PAYG SIMs and they no longer work on steam phones. I shall be reading this thread with interest. I had already noted what3words as a useful app to start with, as Sue points out. Alan
  13. I don't know about you, but if I don't like someone I prefer to be aware of what they're up to. Alan
  14. Best combination I've ever owned. I've got other lenses but I reckon I do 95% of my work with this combo. I have a NEX6 and I've tried an X-T1 but they can't come near it for quality. I'm wondering whether more recent Sonys or Fujis have made significant leaps forward since then. But for now my shoulder can just about cope with a bag (with a flexible strap) full of FF DSLR kit. For how long though? Alan
  15. And mine. Most emphatically. There is NO WAY I would take these down. I would respond to the company saying that under UK law you have a perfectly legal right to take, displauy and license these photos and please could they explain why they feel they have a right to have them removed. We must not be bullied. As the Colonel says, it will be the end of street photography for all of us. Alan
  16. BBC drama serial from 1999, "Shooting the Past" written by Steven Poliakoff. Brilliant drama from one of my favourite dramatists. Alan
  17. Well someone's got to provide balance Alan
  18. Never been better. Good sales in the last couple of months to match. Alan
  19. Very nice. I would have definitely swapped mine for that one! Alan
  20. I said "Some people", Gen. And I was talking about how the terms are used by such people, not about the officially recognised definitions. I've been a part of the motorised camping fraternity in the past and I can assure you that in the UK the two terms are often used interchangeably, by users and especially by dealers who would like customers to think that a Hiace is a "home" rather than just a "van". I usually referred to my Renault Master conversion as a campervan but it was certainly sold to me as a motorhome. Maybe it's different in Oz Alan
  21. I wish I had! Letters in the BFP newsletter kept saying how impossibly hard it was to pass Alamy QC so I put it off until 2008 Alan
