    BTW guys. Some of you seem to have an over exposure problem with the film you use. Perhaps the film is faulty or something. Most of the scenery in the pics is white. :rolleyes: :eek: :p :D

    My railway pics never come out with white scenery. Yeah. Must be the film. I'm convinced. :eek: :D ;) :p :rolleyes:

    Chris, can you get any picture inside???? nudge nudge wink wink... OK if I steal your picture too?

    Woodie, it's a color shift you get from going waaaay to North of the equator, the indirect light makes the greens turn white, especially the grass!

    Woodie Yes I have been very inactive Sold my house and built that nest for the old girl and I, doing 50% of the work myself,taking on a project like that at 71 was crazy with he result that I exhausted myself got very ill with a blocked bowel and almost kicked the bucket. But I am, thanks to the good Lord very fit again. my good lady, Bless her put her foot down and suggested that I build a layout in the loft that I have built in the roof and take up watercolour painting ,something I allways wanted to do
    Never intended to move to Canada permanently only to spend the Summer here, but had to spend a Xmas here, so we have had a taste of a Canadian Winter

    Chris in SA we call a Barbie a " Braai " comes from the Afrikaans
    word "Braaivleis" which means "cook meat", anyway chewing steak with these old teeth is a bit of a job so we dont do it very often but, the" cold ones' sure go down well during our very hot Summers
