Well done on your peppers pic Phil - lovely shot!

In your intro pics, is that guy really doing a Dave Lee Travis impersonation? Yikes!

Anyway, three from me.

Nice subject. I have lots of slides of rock and metal shows from the late 70s and early 80s but almost none of them are good enough for Alamy. So you'll have to do without photos of Lemmy and have pictures of my son instead.




My dad and son playing piano together.






Someone fluffs their lines singing in the Christmas concert. Me boy (on the right) looks a bit vague about his lines as well.

Good enough for archival?

Thanks for the idea, I hadn't thought of that. I'll have to have a look. Some of them are probably good, even if quite a lot of them are blurred. This was the good old days when fast film was 400 ASA and my zoom was f5.6 at the long end.
