51 : Ethel Will Know What I Mean

Ethel will know what I mean. I feel a new camera coming on. It's a feeling other picture-taking addicts will recognise. The belief that a shiny new piece of kit will somehow transform your dull prints  into chromatic works of art. The idea that a few more pixels and less modest focal length will turn you into a Bill Brandt or a Henri Cartier-Bresson. Whether it is glass plate, roll film or SD card, that feeling is something all photographers will recognise. Ethel will know what I mean.
