probably both! - the lad was competing in the piping section at the Forres Highland games last year. I wish that stringline at the top wasn't there...

drove to Ardmore this morning & went to the wrong end of the airfield really. Still, any shot of a Spitfire is better than none!

Photo my dad took of my mother on Farmers building Auckland Aug 1950 on their honey moon. Not sure of camera but assume the one below:

I did do some restoration of the photo of Mum, within my limitations ... but can't work out where I stored the edit!!

Canon M5: A variety of Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, prime and zoom lenses, Samyang fisheye, 2 lovely Minolta MD, just for fun a Helios 44-2 58m - and adapters.

very cool, both the picture and what it was taken on - I think a lot of older photos look fine in their original form without a lot of editing. I ran that pic of your mum through a colourisation website to see what it would look like & it was interesting but I wouldn't say better.

At some stage I edited a lot of the flaws eg the white spots, but can't find my edited image unfortunately.

I like it as B & W, or it's probably more greyscale ...
