Coffee and lunch with Roy Hammans and David Runnacles yesterday. Lively discussions around all things photographic, from vintage cameras to the merits of the Fuji X series, the quirks of WordPress to Roy’s index to Creative Camera, and Don McCullin to street photography in Cambridge. The latter was illuminated by looking at David’s excellent new book of his work printed through Apple. The print quality is first class and although the unit cost per book sounds high, as Roy said, it would be at least as expensive to get a set of prints to the same standard from any other source.
Roy has accepted the privilege (dubious?) of judging a photographic competition being set up by a church in Bury St Edmunds. The theme is something to do with spires, but that’s yet to be properly defined. Roy set David and me the challenge of making a portrait of him for use with the publicity. This is one of my attempts – Roy chose one of the others to put on Facebook.
