  • Commented on challenge An A to Z of Subjects- Week 6, F

    F has a silent E as in (E)F....emphatic. obvious really. Does Ph... count too...as in foto/photo?

  • Placed 46th in the challenge.
  • Great colours.
  • Sorry it is a bit old....but internetting from China can be frustrating. M240/Summilux 21mm
  • Almost empty since it was supposed to be shut....actually there was restricted entry. Fascinating place and I did take a lot of photos. Lots of old stuff that had been cut back to show the ...
  • Replied in Airports
    Nice set....especially PEK......reminds me of Wednesday when I hopped from foggy PEK to AMS and then to BRS. Thanks too for the advice about the museum in PEK...worked out very well (pics ...
  • Last week I had to steal back the GF1 that I had given to my friend's daughter; my slightly more expensive camera had a battery charger malfunction. But I posted a photo here anyway and was given ...
  • 謝謝您! Well, I knew it was a MiG! But a huge shame they are letting it all decay in the salty sea air. My Chinese is pretty bad but I can get around ok. Will try the museum near the Feiji Daxue....I ...
  • You are right about the Il 28 and An2....licence built with Chinese designations. The half hidden fighter is a MiG 21 with a pointy nose....a Chinese development. The Transport aircraft on the ...
  • Replied in Whoops
    I thought the second was GF1....but no....Leica M240/Summilux 21mm....ho hum..well, it is mirrorless!
  • The battery charger on the Leica M240 gave up so I had to snatch back the GX1 that I gave to my friend's daughter a few years ago. Here is the Leica pic....jpegged to my tablet before the battery ...
  • If it is as bad as the GX7 then get some spare batteries. I mostly use manual primes and that must help. But for a good days shooting you really need spares....if it is anything like the GX7. ...
  • Both good. The BW works well. I wanted to fly Tigers years ago but the costs just got too much. Flew one from a farm strip in Canada....just once....such a good trip.
  • You left the best until last...although the first was close enough! Pity you missed the objective...but these make up for it. Nice images.
  • Nice set....you clearly had good access. Brings back some old memories too....struggling with the aeroelastic analysis of the MRCA tail in the late 60s...later seeing it smoking off from Warton ...
  • An experiment in uploading some jpegs to my little tablet and then a bit of Snapseed. I'll process the RAW properly when I get home. ...mmm not sure if I selected the best from the tiny ...
  • Three recent snaps. I was with a bunch of mates in Dieppe last week. (M240/75mm Summicron) One from the Leica Akademie day in Bristol a few weeks ago (M240/21mm Summilux) And one from a motor bike ...
  • Commented on photo Ingrown wheel in the Wheeeels ! challenge

    ....really nice photo....but looks ever so slightly like a gear to me. Maybe I am wrong...hope so.

  • Replied in Japanese kites
    Not exactly this week,but I have not posted here for a while....so here goes. I spent a couple of weeks in Japan with the traditional kitemakers and at some very old....well, 300 years old, ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Clement Ader's Avion 3...cockpit detail
    Left the ground on 12 Oct 1897; now in the Musee des Arts et Metiers, Paris
