Jolly busy today. Started with scanning a few local negs and editing for printing, then across to my dentist just under an hour away in Cheshire (a dentist is for life not just for Christmas)!
Followed this by calling in at the Ilford Lab Direct facility at the Harman Technology factory a couple of miles from dentist. This is where all of the Ilford black and white films and papers are made.
I had 8 new image files to drop off for printing onto silver gelatine paper and needed some others reprinting. Neil the manager offered to try and print Monday as I’m a little behind at the moment.
From Mobberley it was home to edit a new magazine advert needed for copy deadline of Monday.
Then I was picked up and driven to a committee meeting of the High Peak Artists Association who run the Gallery in the Gardens in Buxton where my work is sold. I’m the secretary of the committee.
This went on a bit longer than expected but fortunately Jan had dinner completely under control, as usual.
Thank goodness we have a relaxing weekend planned with friends in Upton St Leonards near Gloucester. Monday night I’m giving another lecture to Cotswold Monochrome who happen to hold their meetings within 200 yards of where our friends live.
Hope the weather is good. I still have almost no pictures of the Cotswolds. It should be great for black and white but you need the right light.
