    Enlarging lenses are one of the few photographic items to be picked up cheap second hand (you can read all the books about size and number of elements) but a 50mm 3 element Schinder can be had for less than £40 and is a very good starting point for 35mm work. Always check the lens by looking down it backward as this magnifies any scratches or condensation. I bought my first lens from Jacobs (oh what happened to that once wonderful company at least in Birmingam its now all display and no content) for less than £35.00. If you live near Leicester go to their super store (near the station) or the Jessops suprestore (near the London Road) as I've found good bargins at both these temples to the photographic god! Leicester really must be the mecca for the mass produced photographic kit (2 superstores and at least two more branches in the city centre ( also I think most of Jessop's second hand kit is stored at the London road shop??!)).

    Jacobs used to have a set of shelves in their store covered in 'junk' and great fun could be had mooching around - bit like a photographic car boot sale! I got 50 sheets of Kodac RC VC paper 2 quid! - 1/2 litre fix a quid etc etc but I haven't been for quite a while and it probably all carpet and displays of digital point and shoots these days!!!!

    and from One veggie to another - don't let the carnivores get you down!
