    Well, Alan, your first is good but your second is strikingly powerful. You can take it that I like it.

    This may well raise a legion of "How the Hell?" questions ...

    I love the incongruity thrown up by the smart shoes, hat and natty jacket in amidst the Heath Robinsonesque seating/playing arrangement and a rucksack on the floor. Brilliant.

    I reckon this pianist is also a skilled acrobat, to get on and off that swivel chair without tipping something else over in the process.

    Nikki Sixx purchases a tripod from a co-worker about 10 years ago at, ironically, Dunne and Rundle Cameras ;)

    Oh Jack, don't think I've ever seen those Kodak 'Hot air balloon' mobiles before!

    I'd completely forgotten about those, Sam, and they were kind of unique, As well, I suspect, their is a "Kodak" collector out there, who has, probably,
    monopolized the hot air Kodak balloons ;) I should have kept a few and used them up my retirement plan :D

    Hope all is well and continued great shooting :)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Just realised quite how slow my brain is becoming!
    I've just been outside to my lovely daily visitor - the mobile shop from the local bakers, who supplies all the staples I need (apart from the papers). Must nip out with my camera next time and hopefully get him to pose for me looking round the doorway of the van.
    Duh!

    After deciding to take my mobile shop and shopkeeper, I've missed him every morning since.
    So apologies but these are a couple of oldies I still like. :)
