    That'll be next

    I think the lighting is obviously very good where Geoff's taking pictures, plus he's using a good camera, and those (aside from his culinary/presentational skills) are the reasons why his pictures are consistently of a high standard.

    Actually, I'm using an ancient Canon Ixus 100is mini-compact that cost me 18 off ebay, the lighting is just the kitchen flourescent tube. The images look crap when I first take them, but I then edit them with 'Faststone Image Viewer', only takes a jiffy. To be honest, the images are not sharp. I'll dig out a better camera sometime.

    I am a reasonably well trained photographer though. Too lazy these days for any serious stuff.

    Well, just because the camera didn't cost you much, doesn't mean it's not good!

    I know next to hee-haw about cameras, but I know that Canon's often have good lenses. Plus, your experience in photography will also certainly help, as that explains why your pictures are always nicely framed. You'll know what I mean by that. The fact that you take time to do things right, even though it doesn't take you long, also has to be applauded.

    And of course, the 'tidying up' you do with the aforementioned software will defo help, not to mention the most important thing is that you clearly know how to cook good simple British food!

    A continued attempt to get 'beach ready' for next week. I've lost almost a stone so I'm now more walrus than whale.

    I've had to buy new shorts & today I discovered that the cabin baggage that was ok last year is now 4cm to big so I've had to buy new luggage as well (thanks Virgin)
