 Pictures and perspectives;

   The soft light is lovely around North Yorkshire

These photos were taken with a Nikon EM with a sigma zoom lens 28-70mm I think? The sigma lens is sharp with little distortion but does noticeably not cope with direct sunlight but having said that the effects can be pleasing to the eye.

 
 
    
 
 
 
 
Whitby Abbey – Strikingly you can see what the 19c photographer Sutcliff, and the people who chose the site for the abbey felt and photographed in the light & scenery around Whitby

Norway 1982? – Taken with Agfa Silette I, and Leningrad Light Meter, using Fuji Slide Film. This camera is easiest to use, sharp pictures and good with any lighting. There is picture distortion which is generally not noticeable but makes the centre bigger than the edges. Set the camera approximately then you only need to think about the composition of the photo.

Hever Castle in Kent

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.” Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963

My personal view is that we are at least better off with European Union, and the Euro. In fact I think much of what we have from the EU such as Citizenship rights and possibly a future constitution is excellent. The achievement of the EU is beyond my original sceptical 1976 view in the common market debate. Peace is in Europe is central a objective. By contrast we are only subject of the Queen (or US) as UK residents any sort of constitution we have is unwritten and varies at establishment’s convenience. Also EU is sceptical about that filthy GM. GM creates a superhighway of new variations of bugs 10,000 times more quickly than nature {to paraphrase Dr Mae-Wan Ho}. Plant and animals genes divided 1 billion years ago, are now being crossed, massive amounts of unidentified, may not normally be expressed (Junk) DNA are moved with the intended gene.

My Father John Lohmann (1929-2002)
said about things that were not good for me like having a few drinks:
“Don’t do it – pause – Unless you want to” The meaning was it’s not good for me, and he wanted me to look after myself, even so what i’m doing is entirely ok.

Thailand 1998;

 
  
 
 Thailand (Phuket) 1998 – Famous Tropical Sunset
I am a Electronics Design Engineer and was a Labour Southborough Town Councillor since 1995 to 2007, and chaired the Planning and Transportation Committee from October that year till April 2003.  I am a car owner but prefer public transport or walking. My preference is for vegan food. I support of Anti Nuclear and various environmental organizations. I endeavour to recycle and reuse where possible, I value well made things. I am not tolerant of being told can’t, without a good explanation.
 
 

Seven Sisters (Cliffs between Eastbourne and Worthing)

 £40 school cruise in 1971 to the Canary Islands and Casablanca

I bought a Tommy Cooper Hat. Pictures are a sunset nearly as good as a tropical sunset on the way out and Madeira with local guide and school boys on the cruise. Print film & processing was not up to much at the time, and the first picture was not printed. The pictures were taken using light tables & my lovely Camera Agfa Silette I. It has been necessary to soften the pictures to make them usable. The camera copes wonderfully with direct sunlight, has a very sharp f2.8 lens, and has been repaired a number of times since in order to align the view finder and I have also fixed the film winder. – Tommy Cooper was asked on Parkinson where did he get his Fez. Tommy started to talk about North Africa, but got distracted and upset. Apparently he backed a horse at 20 to 1 but it came in at 20 past 4. Tommy then chuckled at his joke.
