Cheers for setting up the comp Howard. Just managed to get access to internet today and catching up.In anticipation of my getting the D700 later in the week my D80 managed to forcethe zip open on my over-stuffed backpack and drop 4 feet onto concrete with my Tammy 28-70 on board. The lens hood took the only seeming damage but I now find I am having trouble when shooting wide open at 2.8 :(. Hoping a rest will sort it - just refuses to release the shutter and yet if a moveout a fracton off it goes. I`m hping it`s just the onset of shutter failue rather than the lens as I need that.
Anyway got a steel drum player today but hoping for something better as I spend a few days in Stratford on Avon where Shakespeare seems to be the theme somehow  ;)

Still hoping to find a busker somewhere to photograph, but now seeming unlikely as we have an event at my daughter's school most of tomorrow. So I took a snap of our 1930s piano - still in fine fettle sonically, but a bit rough and ready about the edges due to its advancing years.

Thanks for setting up the poll jinky, much appreciated.

My trip to the yUK was a waste of time alas   >:(

Big congrats to Irv for the run away win there.
