It will also be the first chance I've had to pick-up bits and pieces for my Ekka photo entry. This is, as you would be aware dear reader, finally a belated first for me. After thinking about it for many years and too often remembering the deadline for entry too late in the piece, I am finally preparing my first entry in the colour (restricted) division. 'Restricted' is for those who haven't won anything before...I wasn't quite confident to go 'open'.
|Clear start, at 6.12am|

I've also decided during the week that I will resume some proper black and white photography. This is motivated by two things: one was the ambiguity of the 'monochrome' division in the Ekka schedule...I wasn't quite clear about whether it was actual monochrome film or digitally manipulated. Turns out, I might have been able to monochromise some of the digital pics, but too late; the other reason is that I still have a perfectly good film camera, and I would quite seriously like to get back into this hobby. So I've also bought some B&W film and camera batteries...this is serious, at 6.12pm.
