Papping Not that long ago I was crapping on about taking candid photos of people.  I thought a new camera might help, even though there are loads of photos out there from SLRs where cats have gotten wonderful candid shots! Well, I bought a TLR and after running a test film through it, scanning the results and learning some lessons, I’ve had a go at papping some peeps in London.  How do I think it went?  Well, after a few glares and very strange looks I apologised to a lady outside John Lewis. “it’s a camera” I stuttered - “Oh it’s wonderful” she replied, gave me a beaming smile and happily walked on.  Turns out I took a look of quizzicality as a glare, oops! I’ve uploaded the shots after a few hours happy scanning.  It was a great day, and I’m a happy man.
