he's a good bloke, sailed all the way from Oregon, which didn't sound like a bad effort. had a good yarn with him and he's got some stories to tell.
i went for my morning run with that el cheapo lens with the macro function i was telling you about. i just love it. it's so cheap, nasty and plasticy feeling, and it had such horrible reviews when it was new.
it's like a boogie of possible lenses that you could have.
