    See, sharp intelligent brief and to the point, husband firmly in place!
    I definitely want to come back as a female next time! Glad it is not just the Wife that runs circles round me and this kinda slick response is clearly gender specific.

    More power to your shutter finger ladies.

    My wife has been going to Pt. Elliot, a quiet beachside summer location on the south coast of Adelaide since she was a child. For 3 weeks each year she lolls about relaxing and socialising with people who like her, have been doing the same thing for decades. Of course these days our daughters are with her giving me 3 weeks of blessed peace at home. At Pt. Elliot they allways stay in the same caravan park, so for many years she either had to borrow or rent a van or put up a tent. Five years ago I bought her a caravan of her own. This has given me a lifetime of brownie points plus a new Hexar Rf. 28, 50 and 90 Hex lenses, Cv 21 and 35 lenses and just recently a new Leica M6ttl. The van was without doubt the best investment I've ever made.

    We, men, should learn to have more respect for woman and no more to consider them as the 'sexual opposition' nor inferior. I think they are true companions in worse and better.
    To me, woman are the memory of the world and they carry the heavy moral load (not only the children), they are 'l'origine du monde'...(not to mention Gustave Courbet).
    Perhaps, then, we should no more to have to hide things, and act reasonably.
    This is why I find this threat to be interesting, beneath the surface it's all about how we live with confidence, I know, this is damn difficult...
    But of course, appreciation will have to com from both sides.

    Sorry for this rather 'off topic' post, but I could not resist.

    Touche Phillipe beautifully said, and don't apologise you have "Hit the nail on the head" so to speak.

    The equipment sits in the back house (my studio) for a couple of months, I get to explore the ins and outs of it in private, then one day, it just appears. The GF wonders where it came from. I answer truthfully, I got it awhile ago. The 5x7s were a bit tough to hide, but it worked eventually. Now all I have to figure out is how to break the RB67 to her. That's one BIG camera.

    I was browsing over at Nikonians and spotted an N90s that was too good a deal to pass up (including MB-10). Here to fore I would have had severe angst over the purchase but becoming a Sole Propietarship saved us more that 2500$ on 2006 taxes. As my wife looked down the list of new lenses and cameras she was amazed and pleased that I had followed her sage adviced and launched a portrait and event photography business. Now I made no money last year because of lack of time, but I have already polished off one weddiing this month and I am looking forward to more portraits and a wedding in June. Did I mention that N90s came with a grip?
