I hope, that given time, my M700 and I can learn to at least get along, if not actually fall in love. It does have some absolutely top notch functions which I'm slowly getting my head round but by thunder, it's a demanding relationship.
I like this one purely due to the pained expressions on the faces of the two girls behind Clare.

On fickle customers
The right to rant :-)
Perhaps fickle is not the right word, and after all, my customers allow me to eat, pay my mortgage and have the odd pint. A better title might have been, "All customers may reserve the right to change their minds about everything previously agreed, right up until the moment the shutter is released".
It wouldn't do to go into specifics for obvious reasons, but I have learned a valuable lesson this week: don't assume anything until you've got a signature . Yes, I know it's a basic rule of business, but you know when you've got someone's word on something? When everything's organised and you've put time aside? When you've come to trust someone? I could continue but from now on, nothing is set in stone until either there is money on the table, or a binding contract in my hand.
Rant over, here's a calming picture of Clare and Kasper with Roseberry Topping in the background.
