(To be read in a whisper, with an Attenboroughrian accent).
There I was, boys and girls, crossing the Wollondilly River at Goodman’s Ford (along the Wombean Caves Road in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia)… as I was saying…. All of a sudden, there was a silent clap of thunder and a streak of cloud in the sky pointed towards two figures standing on the bridge.
There was something familiar about them and about their activity. Let me tell you, boys and girls, a 10-20mm lens doesn’t let you get too much detail on a distant subject. If the picture is somewhat indistinct, it’s because my heart was beating so rapidly, making it hard to focus on ……
There will be a special intangible reward of a highly personal and deeply warm inner glow to anyone who can recognise either or both of these legends of the lens, these characters of the camera, these perennial presenters of the perfectly placed and processed pixel.
