1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    First outing with the new (to me) Sony RX100 III.

    Found a nice little composition. Might have to return with the big camera....

    I think it's well documented that I am a huge fan of Mark LJ's work. I was inspired to go out (despite the conditions) from watching this video of Mark on Nigel Danson's YT channel, which came out this morning. Well worth a watch:

    Thank you :)

    Fortunately, these woods are approx 5 mins from our place so once the sky began to clear, I dashed out. Still got caught in a hailstorm but with it being nigh on horizontal, I sheltered behind a large tree. I love this place.

    As we always said in musical circles...'It ain't the size of your instrument, it's the tunes you play on it'. Gorgeous. :)

    Picked up a cheap Olympus 75-300 II the other day - it's not the most earth-shatteringly good lens out there (it's more than a bit plasticky) but for the money it was almost too good not to. This one's not in its first flush of youth either, but functions perfectly and the glass is spotless.

    I love this. When I was a Pentax ME Super owner I always wanted an LX but never got one.

    I didn't think Marks and Spencer did brutalist concrete.

    Thanks, Richard.
    Thanks, John. I'm a Pentaxian and owned a fair few of the Pentax bodies. A while back I sent them all away for a service and decided to move some of them on. The LX was one of those that got sold, and in doing so, it paid for all the servicing :) I kept my ME, ME Super and Spotmatic SP 500. The ME Super is a wonderful camera, it's so small, especially with the 40mm Pancake lens on it, it becomes overcoat pocketable.

    @Mr Perceptive. Thanks, David. I've been going through some of my negatives and this one dates back to 2012. Banging my own drum here. This image made its way into The Pentax Photogallery, titled as Osseous :)
    Liverpool Museum is the shoebox shaped building?
