JAM has just started and it sounds like Nickerless is speaking on a very

I don't listen because I can't stand him, but someone in another place
asked if he had new false teeth because apparently that's what it sounded
like.

I can't stand him either and I am driving home Mondays after
babysitting #1 daughter's children so like R4 then. No longer. I liked
the Museum thing and ..or was that Thursdays? I am doing two days now.
I wish the BBC would be more considerate.

Just tell hash 1 daughter that babysitting is off until Radio 4
scheduling up their game.

Well, grandchildren are more fun than R4, especially the nuggering
news at present, which is very orange. :)

A friend just forwarded a picture to me. At the top it shows the care
label on an item of clothing and underneath the text reads:

"This is a clothing label from a small American
company that sells their product in France.
Here's the translation of the French part of
the label.

Wash with warm water.
Use mild soap.
Dry flat.
Do not use bleach.
Do not dry in the dryer.
Do not iron.
We are sorry that our president is an idiot.
We did not vote for him."

One can see the label clearly enough to read that it does indeed say
that. Brilliant!

The only orange news down here is the amazing colour of the sunset
last night. We had had 40+ degrees of heat during the day culminating
in a massive storm in the late afternoon and the atmosphere was
charged with electricity as the sun went down. I`m afraid you`ll have
to wait until after I get back if you want to see pictures: I`m using
film cameras, not digital, at the moment.

Yes, I know. It`s a bit like CD vs vinyl.

I started getting interested in "wet film" again after my son lead an
expedition down the Grand Canyon and returned with photos on film and
digital and the differences really stood out. I wouldn´t say one is
better than the other but they are decidedly different and I like the
difference. There`s also the consideration that really good old
film-based equipment that I could never have afforded in the past is
now selling for next to nothing.

Can you expand on that, please? In what way(s) different?

The easiest way to explain would be to show you those Grand Canyon
photos -which I have not got. Not here, anyway. But some technical
differences come to mind. Digital images are made up of neat,
rectangular pixels and however small they are, when you blow them up
they become -erme- pixelated. Photographic film stores the information
in amorphous grains and as you blow them up they become softer and
less distinct. Digital sensors have the different colour cells side by
side, colour film has them on top of each other in layers. Digital
sensors tend to add a certain amount of electronic "noise" whilst film
is more likely to suffer from dust and scratches though a good, well
looked-after camera of either persuasion will keep those factors to a
minimum.

They also make me think differently. I can keep clicking away with a
digital camera and chances are that one or two will turn out quite
nice. When I´ve only got 12/15/24/36/48/72 (1) frames available I am
more likely to think about what I am photographing before I go click.

I don´t think either one is better than the other one - I use both
analogue and digital cameras - but that it´s worth playing to the
strengths and weaknesses of each.

(1)The selection of film cameras available to me is left as an
exercise for the reader

This makes me think. I keep pushing the button as it is essentially
free. But ...

We recently visited Bergen which I visited in 1976. I did not recognise
it. Went looking for the slides from 1976 - but there were only two of
boats in the harbour and so I could not see the place to see if I was
mistaken or if it really has changed.

So not taking a lot of photos has its limits as well.
