    Hi Sharllee. Your profile is very interesting and I can see that you area very imaginative photographer. My camera club is dominated by very clever female photographers and I often feel my age is evidenced by my conservative approach to the camera.Johnrf.

    You are so very welcome John…hope you are doing great! :)

  • Thank you Janine. I am running on about 3 out of 4 cylinders at the moment.- my Parkinsons has reduced my voice to a mumble but otherwise I am reasonably OK.
    I am exploring the possibility of a self-guided tour to the Li river in China after Xmas while I can still get about over short distances. when loaded down with my camera gear.
