Yep, scan of a 4x5 glass plate [Ilford r50] I exposed the other day. Used Toots' 4x5 I have here since he seems to have gone awol. Did a bit of tilt/swing and there you have it. Developed in PQ unversal.

Because I can.

Much sadness in Manchester, a place where I worked for ten years.
My thoughts and love are with those who been touched by this tragedy in someway .

Jacob and Louise have been here on  the island from Belgium. They are not Belgian from Belgium like Denis was The Croation from Croatia but British from Belgium in that that's where they live - some of the time. The rest of the time they travel the world throwing shapes or something.
They threw a shape on Bosta the other day. Just because they could. They won't do it again, they'll try another shape next time.

YOU know I'm right

Ooof, I'm still here writing posting and everything. Showing you me masterpieces and the like. Of course I've been writing less - we've had visitors and all. Family as it happens. Brov-in-law and wifey plus Jacob me nephew and his partner Lou over here from Bruxelles.

I took the nephew and Lou for a little look see on the island. You know the thing; an Lanntair, Temple cafe, Bridge Centre cafe , Mission House Studio, The Butty Bus with semi-resident tea drinker John Maher oh, and some beaches and what have you. Even the sun shone and they, the nephew and Lou threw a few shapes on Bosta as is their way as Ballet dancers. Here he is 'doing' a few shapes on vid although not all of the shapes. Obviously. He saved some for Bosta. The Bosta shapes [ 3 of them] might be in here somewhere too. Oh and here's a shape or two from Lou and Jacob in Bruxlles. They like that sort of thing there. Bit like an Lanntair really.

Anyway, with all something or other around the island i was inspired. Inspired I tell you so I shot this binscape which as it happens, I love.

Of course you'll all be wanting copies of thhat and I can, at minimal expense arrange that.
