#838. Leaving home. Coming home.

By paulperton | Opinion

Of necessity, this is a long post – lots of words, that is. You have my apologies up front and can do a TL:DR and scroll down to the photographic content should you want.   I’m pretty much off topic here, but hope you’ll bear with me – there are lots of photographs to see. […]

#789. More Smartphone Fun

By Steve Mallett | Opinion

Pascal’s post #755, “In defence of smartphone photography, again” and more recently Adrian’s  post #786 Am I going Crazy? (Using an inexpensive smartphone), speak of “smartphone fun” and I thought I’d add my two penn’orth. As some of you will know, I belong to a U3A camera group, (University of the Third Age) comprising members of […]
