What do you get for Christmas
« on: December 26, 2020, 11:00:11 AM »
Obviously photo related as we all get socks at Christmas!

I got a portable throw over hide and kneeing mat.

I also bought myself a Rotolight Neo2 LED light and trigger - an offer on their website couldn't be overlooked! (Still looks to be active!) https://www.rotolight.com/jasonoffers/ - I have also bought a couple more Neo2 from a friend of mine who has upgraded to the bigger ones at a decent price.

A Silvestri 6x loupe for focusing on the ground glass of my large format cameras;
A spare ground glass formy 5x7 Canham camera;
A Canham 5x7 ground glass protector;
Some dry plates in 5x7 and 10x8 (25 ISO).

I didn't actually get any socks - my "everyone gets one" present was a grammar of classical Greek  :)

Nothing photo. Got a book (Music Theory), a couple of CDs (Porcupine Tree), and a bottle of Ardbeg. Oh, and I did get some socks, probably for the first time in 30 years. I'd saved up my personal allowance for 6 months and bought myself a new bass guitar to replace my worn out Hohner Pro that I have had since the early 1990s and is basically effed; if I can find a decent luthier I will get it refretted, but as it was a very expensive instrument I suspect that would cost rather a pretty penny. The new one is lovely though, so no rush.

So had a fab Christmas, just our household and a roaring oak fire going all day long. Magic.

We had a lovely Christmas Day at my daughters house with the  grandkids and my youngest daughter was with us -2 households meeting up. First time we`ve all been together on Christmas day for a few years. Grandkids should have been in Kent with other grandparents but my prayers were answered and common sense prevailed to keep them in Leeds  ;D. very little photo gear in my santa delivery -just a wireless remote for my Fuji with the rest being a mix of kitchen gadgets and booze + the customary socks and ants.

I didn't get any photography related gifts this year.
Got some martial arts equipment to train with, some Lego, aftershave and some money. I'm saving up for a new speaker so may put it towards that. Or maybe something else that takes my fancy.

Oh I nearly forgot, I got some socks too!

Sounds like you've all had a lovely Christmas.
May the Force be with you.
