I like that, Nigel - the small water droplets really add something too.

I can remember at the time it was just on the point of raining , I felt a few drops but didn't view the result closely until downloaded to my computer.

Continuing the theme , the humble washing line....

Nice one Steve - and one of my favourite cars too. 8)

The quality of this one isn't great (it's a 6x4" Cibachrome scanned on our cheapo printer) but I'd really like to find somewhere who can properly scan slides as I've loads of this sort of stuff...

A friend of ours recently asked me to shoot their wedding - was a tad apprehensive at first but come the day I actually enjoyed it. One of the images from the day...

I can only recall ever taking one photo of which I have been proud, more for the opportunity rather than anything about the shot itself. A newly fledged sparrowhawk landed on the bench in the garden. I was able to get within 3 ft and take a picture with my wifes point and press Sony.

Herb - I'd have been chuffed to bits to get a photo like that, and also for the opportunity to get so close to something so beautiful. :)

Where did you get that case from? I've just bought an X100s and rather like the look of that.

Nice phots by the way!
