    Lovely lighting and interesting subject.

  • Thanks, Al. It’s been gathering dust in the kitchen for ages, so I thought I’d try a few shots of it after I’d finished playing with “Electric Fish”.

    I love how you’ve captured not only the subject but the memories it holds.

  • Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave your comments, Aileen. And thanks, too, for the “favourite”. Much appreciated.
