Thanks, I like the two sets of repeating patterns.

Lovely, Matthew. I was here yesterday & saw this fire escape too, but had my 4 year-old to contend with & didn't have time to compose it properly! You've done it just brillaintly!

Thanks Sarah. Did you ever manage to find a suitable kid's camera? I ended up buying a cheap(ish) Pentax from Max Spielman.

Hi Matthew,

I bought a second-hand Canon Powershot S50 in the end because I had one a couple of years ago & it took great photos & seemed very tough. My son loved it & really enjoyed taking photos, but one day he dropped it onto a stone floor & has not been quite the same since. It works very intermittently & is unreliable. I'm looking for a replacement model at the moment & may well buy the same again.

Which Pentax did you opt for & has it been well received (& used?)

All best,
