Whatever will "they" think of next?
I don't have a photograph, but you can have my footprints. They're upstairs in my socks.

It will be interesting to see how this all develops.

Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts.  ~Minor White

Gear - Sony Alpha77 /Minolta 300mm f4 /Tamron XR DiII SP 17-50mm f2.8 / Minolta 28-80mm/Tamron Di 90mm macro . And various slaves/lights and studio stuff.

Ps, it was never the focus for me. it was always the wonky horizons (a result of starting photography when I was in the merchant navy I suspect :-) ) however the new A77 and its aviation like spirit level are now keeping me on the straight and narrow.
A77, CZ 16-80, 70-300G, SAL 16-50, Tamron 90mm macro, plus other bits including a Manfrotto 290 3 legged thingy.

My other hobby is a 1976 Signal Red Triumph Spitfire!
