I didn't get anything new either but ... I did get a book token which I spent in this place:
It's a new Arts bookshop in Dublin (South William Street) that has a great selection of photography books and other art-related stuff. I would encourage any Dublin-based Irish apuggers to drop in if they are in town some day. It's a venture worth supporting ....
I got a lovely Olympus Trip, one of the fancy restored ones, green leatherette covering, and some Portra 400 VC to go with it. And vouchers, to buy myself some fancy shoes to match :D
My family gave me some cash, and I finally got around to getting a scanner. And, now I can see all the mistakes I've been making when processing film.
LOL, well done Sinead, its so important to have matching shoes to go with your camera :)

some nice stuff there, wow wow Sinead!!!
and a 7005, cool.
and a great link Hugh thanks for that.
Nothing specifically photo related for me, the only just an insulated Gilet which has been handy during the big freeze and will be handy on any early starts. And some sterling for a trip to the UK.
I should have got some crampons, fell badly on ice this morning, ouch :( Be careful folks....
This looks great a real bookshop for Dublin at long last, looking forward to spending some time here. Thanks Hugh

I also got some ilfochrome chemicals and papers which I am looking forward to trying out soon.
Just got some Neopan 120 for opening on Christmas morning...It's well gone now...thanks be to God.
In the last few days I picked up a Metz 45 Cl4 flash from Fintan and he very generously threw in a stroboframe bracket with it..(thanks Fintan). I'm really looking forward to using them to shoot a couple of weddings in strobist style with my 'blad.
I guess Silverprint will be in for a visit!!!!:p
