    Fully laden RR Merlin V12 powered single seater rumbles down Thames main street at the Steampunk Festival. I was quite amazed at how quiet it was, but then it was only idling.

    You must now have a stunning library Nigel!

    I have been trying to eliminate duplicates - but as fast as I delete, I add more...

    Yes I have quite a collection now Ray.

    Storage is becoming a concern, especially with the digital files, as we have to keep 2 copies of everything just in case the hard drive has a meltdown. So many tetrabytes of image files that I've run out of fingers to count them!!

    I like to take a lot of B&W film photos, as I know that they have a better chance of surviving over time. My kids will get strict instructions on how to look after them when I kick off, so hopefully they will still be around in the future when actual cars have disappeared.

    Anyway, most importantly it's a fun hobby and gets me out and about.

    No doubt I'll see you up at HD at some stage this summer, so until then keep that shutter finger exercised.

    Nigel, the B&W Monochrome photos are brilliant - do you do your own developing - not many places to process film these days.
    My lack of own photos recently is because ;
    #1, haven't been to any shows -events since " Supercars " ..
    #2, left my camera in Auckland and haven't managed to retrieve it yet.

    My father used to develop his own photos in the 1950's - in a cupboard in our Hall - very cramped but it worked..
    Had got rid of his trays etc by the time I got a camera in my early teens ..

    Hoping to be at HD December 8th - TACCOC and maybe Caffeine & Classics Nov 24th - early, as my wife has a dance competition.

    My Dad used to develop his own at home, but pre-war, he was a newspaper photographer. After demob, he got a job with a major UK Schools/Industrial/Aerial photographers from 1946 (until he retired), and was soon Production Manager, in charge of the processing side, so he used bulk film stock and had the negs developed at work. When I say stock film, it was bulk, so they merely pulled off a length and put it into a cassette, so you had no idea how many pics you were going to get! No numbers on the negs either but I acquired all his negs when he died.

    I have catalogued many of his, frame by frame, except those he took at work for test shots of staff. A major mission, but then I had all my own negatives and slides to catalogue and have digitised a fair few, as posted on here, but plenty still to do - when I get around to it.

    Yes, a fun hobby, but can be very time consuming, but I really now need to get stuck into the car(s).

    You have a great 'eye' Nigel.

    Thanks Roger & Ray,

    Yes I still do my own developing.

    I have a full darkroom set up in my basement, although I don't do any wet printing anymore.

    I still have several film cameras, 35mm & Medium Format, that I like to exercise every so often.

    Fortunately for me film has not died, and in fact there is some indication that it is slowly gaining in popularity again which is reassuring.

    The biggest problem with old cameras is being able to get suitable batteries for them as they all used mercury ones back in the day.
