    So I’m rusty at loading film properly into a camera, which I recently demonstrated by ruining a very nice Fuji Velvia 100f film in my Fuji GA645i. I thought I’d take it out for a spin when we visited the local Harcourt Arboretum. Isaac likes looking at the trees, just...

    At least, that’s what I’m hoping was the intended message on our outbuilding, which was recently demolished, revealing the message to the dark lord…or is that Valdemort? Oops, not meant to use his name either, for fear of being turned into a toady weasel or sued by Bloomsbury’s lawyers… I...
