If you're lucky Lidl will still have a few of those 'collector's' single malts!

Instead of single malt, I turned to a staple from my own country.
Unless I come up with something else (not very likely, as this did my head in), I may be in with this one:

Double Dutch.

First thing that entered my head was - of course - double scotch. But Dutch works for me too.

Here's mine, Double Double Vision:

Might try for something else over the weekend, but it seems unlikely tbh. The Semflex was a gift from the friend I am restoring the glass plate positive and negatives for, and it is absolutely prsitine. Semflex are French Rollei copies and considered, allegedly, to be on a par with them optically if not in after market value. It certainly weighs the same, but has a better viewfinder . . I really really will run some film through it . .

I think I may have a different shot for this week. Took some this afternoon. Haven't had time to have a closer look yet, but fingers crossed.

Decided against my boozy shot and decided to go with this shot of a couple in total harmony.

Two Look Right.
