We are so pleased that you all had a good time (despite the weather) and made it home OK. It was great to see you all too and to see all the wonderful work you brought along for us to all see. I think we all learnt a lot from the various photo sharing sessions we had and gained much inspiration from seeing the prints in the flesh. It was also good to hear the the Queens came up to your expectations as it is always good to have a hotel that you can recommend. I know when I found the Queens, and although I had no idea what it was actually like, I was pretty assured it would be OK as I had not heard anything said about it. One thing about living down in west Cornwall you soon find out is that bad news travels fast so if you don't hear anything - it is usually OK! I have developed two of my 6x6 films yesterday and the negs look OK (Cot Valley / Gwithian / South Wheal Frances) so hopefully some prints will be produced later this week :-) The best part of the trip for me was seeing most of you tucking into hot Cornish pasties at 11.30 am which were supposed to be eaten at Gwithian for lunch!!! Then finding that this was OK as spares had been purchased for lunch and were in the cars ;-)
Don't forget if you ever want to come back again you will always be made welcome by us local fellow enthusiasts and that there are many more Cornish pasties, Doom Bars and wonderful photo loctions to be discovered and sampled :-)

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
