    Loads of DSPs, a cable coming out (and not going anywhere) , closed up windows. That's a Dodkin monitoring hub you've stumbled on there, Brian.

    Love the shadows. Love the grain and tones. And I love the composition. So, all-in-all, an alright picture! ;)

    By Jove I think you must be correct Pete! A DSH! ;)

    Thanks, Pete. Appreciated.

    That grain is pretty nice and has given me an idea. If I wanted to photograph a blank colour / tone what one with produce the most pronounced grain? My idea is to use the scan of the negative as a texture to get more "real" grain onto a digital photo.

    Paul if I understand correctly wouldn't you want to determine the film to use for grain? (Personally I have noticed that Ilford HP5 processed in Rodinal produces massive grain, especially when one does the Cha Cha Cha during the agitation phases.)

    Sorry Brian, I don't get your question?

    Never mind it Paul. I think I just didn't understand the idea you mentioned.

    Brilliant image Brian, at your best. Love the composition of everything and the grain is what pulls me to use film, on the seldom occasions I do.

    Paul Ive had similar ideas, but then wonder if it would be too uniform. I think the grain on film for some reason is very variable. But I may be wrong.

    Nice of the authorities to create a perch for the pigeons - although I'm now thinking Pete might be right.

    @Chris Dodkin - you've been found out!

    Again! Is this Moores residence as of recently and has he problems getting rid of the birds? Actually it looks as if it was taken in the fifties.
