Re: Summer walks with an F2

Very nice indeed, Julio. Exposures must have been spot on as the beach sand in the last shot is retaining detail. Yes, cameras do get heavier as we age, but it doesn't take much ageing.

Re: Quilting

The detail is stitched in relief so it has a 3D effect. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48979419408_473c40d8f8_o.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48979979006_75ef340557_o.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/489801...

Re: Quilting

That's a very beautiful quilt, Graham. It takes quite a bit of talent to put together a design like that. Any time a quilt comes up at auction around here, the bidding starts to intensify. My grandmother on Dad's side of the family used to do quilting, and I still have the one I was gifted with 50 ...
