We're playing a bit of Panomail tennis at the moment Don! Many thanks for your kind words and award of an L+F! Much appreciated! Best wishes, Andy

This one is a real corker, Andy! Have viewed countless photos in my lifetime and never seen anything taken with this approach. Very effective. Has to be a Y*! Very sorry to hear the Fuji has problems. Any chance of taking it back and getting it swapped? Hopefully, fault will only show under certain extreme circumstances; tha's often the way. If the fault is fixable I just happen to know somebody who could fix it - my brother-in-law actually! He's one of those blokes who are brilliant with their hands and can fix just about anything and, guess what, his hobby at the moment is fixing cameras! He loves it! Feel free to let me know. Off to bed now with a cuppa and a Sudoku.

Cheers, Brian.

best wishes, Brian

Andy, yesterday we had 31°C and the weather forcast pronounces up to 35°C for the weekend... definitively hot enough for me! ;-))

Brian, Hi!

Many thanks - pleased you appreciate it!

The Fuji was bought at a pawn shop. It has a 2 month guarantee. Even if I get my money back, it won't be enough to facilitate the purchase of anything half-way decent. Very kind of you re your b-in-law!!! but I will be returning to Spain fairly soon and unless he lives this side of the Tamar, I think it would be an impossibility!

No, I just have to reconcile myself to getting the best out of the Fuji for the foreseeable!

This photo has a smudge but it's difficult to see due to the nature of the shot. But if you look closely at some of my recent uploads (not all are the Fuji though, at least while I have 200 or so from the Nokia still to upload over the next few weeks and months!), you can, I feel sure, see it.

But I really appreciate your kind comments and your concern!

Best wishes, Andy

Brian, I forgot to add.... I don't normally get wet when taking these as I pride myself on getting JUST the right balance between nerve and discretion! BUT I CERTAINLY GOT A SOAKING HERE!!! Fortunately I just had time to stuff my camera up my t-shirt as I turned away from the worst of the drenching! :o)

Antje, Many thanks and sorry for late response (well 16 months isn't THAT long!).

Hope you are well.

Best wishes, Andy
