Re: CoronaVirus Pandemonium

We had our first case March 13 and the government took immediate actions. Schools and universities closed, non-essential workers go home. Already there is a recession looming because many small service firms are closing. Those of us over 65 have to stay home unless we have a good reason to go out. O...

Re: Boots...

Nicely made, both the boots and your photograph. Keep at it!

These plates must be really old - in this chronology there is an image of a box similar to yours, apparently launched in 1...

Re: Spain and Portugal by Spotmatic

Thanks for the comments! Alex, we did about 1500 km of driving, maybe a bit more (about 1000 miles). Not really that much, but about half of it on local roads.

I took a small digital (Canon G7x MkII) as main travel camera but of course some film camera had to come along. In the end I decided on the Spotmatic with a single lens, 35/2. I took FP4+ which is not...
