Thanks for the kind words, Tony. I've got a serious soft spot for my black MP and the supremely smooth beater M3 I bought (for peanuts, because it looks like it fell out of a car at high speed).... the big blow for me was the unexpected move away from my old home, where my darkroom lived. I'm using Robin Bell for silver prints at the moment, but now that I am settling in London, will need to find some sort of communal darkroom. I've developed most of my film in Afghanistan for the last five years. My house mates did wonder what the banging sound was coming from my bedroom (dislodging air bells, which are a severe problem here for some unknown reason)... and were little reassured when I answered the door with Mr Bates-esque congeniality, wearing an apron and black heavy duty rubber gloves
