    Hi again!
    Stevenson was very good - it certainly suited me. They also have an Advanced Diploma that you can do after the HND. It 's not so much of a taught course, more a support-system to make it easier to get established after college. (There are some classes, of course!) The main focus is in building up a more specialised portfolio in the area that interests you. You can also continue to use college equipment, which is no small advantage! I had to move down to England before I could do the ADP myself but I reckon it would have helped me to get set up on my own much faster.
    Been out in the snow with a camera this morning, trying to get a few pictures of my three (young) cats investigating their first proper snow. Very funny! Not sure my reactions are fast enough, though!
    BTW my main camera is a Mamiya 645, and I reckon it's really good!

    Don't feel bad, ifotou - -28 C here as I type this. That's over a degree colder than the all-UK record set twice in Braemar, Aberdeenshire (my family comes from there and they may have brought the cold with them when they emigrated ).
    Jim MacKenzie - Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Welcome from equally wintery Derbyshire!

    london certainly seems to be taking a bit of a beating... amazing how a little snow stops everything in it's tracks though, even in Scotland when a bit of snow is expected we can get caught out, the Canadians etc really show us all how to do it don't they

    To be fair it's the worst snow in 18 years so we should expect to get inconvenienced. But I suspect that even if we'd had just 1/2 inch of snow then everything would have fallen apart - it usually does :-)

    It's raining again already, that didn't last long...so missed the camera opportunities. Can't take pictures during constant snow showers!

    Perhaps some of you Edinbrrrrh folk can share the secret of Chippy sauce
