Thanks for nice comments.

I've used the same film for a long time (Ilford Delta 100, rated at 64) and have learned to judge how it handles most lighting situations.
As I don't post-process with scans, I need to get things right 'in-camera', and have had many 'didn't-quite-get-things-right' rolls of film to learn from...! :)
Gavin, those are great! And congratulations. Thanks for the interview too. The images are easy to look at, and my eyes just keep moving through them, again and again. The atmosphere you visually describe is something I aspire to (but have nothing to show right now), and reminds me of several places I have been. Good luck with the publication.
Thanks for the kind words :)
