How odd

In this 1970's public information film, Petunia seems to have an Ipod and he has a mobile phone.........

An odd advert to remake I think, in the original stan ran to the phone box. This begs the question......What ever happened to 'public information films'? like the green cross code man, has the world suddenly become safe that we don't need any advice or help anymore?? So why is there so much health a safety, that you can't boil an egg without, gloves, goggles etc. I think the H&E executive and insurance companies need to go back to the 1960's/ 70's when you were expected to have common sense and it was up to you to look where your going!!

Oh Dear and oh yeah!

Well summer was fun......I know the farmers and grass etc need this rain, but some sun would be nice. We had some sunny days in Cornwall where I actually got sunburnt! problem is now that I want to get out there with my 5x4 camera which now has an attachment for my digital camera giving me digital access to tilt and shift. It took a while to make as I had to work out what size tubes to attach, but after a few weeks of experiments I had got it right and the machne was tested! And it was great it took wonderful pictures (see below) I know the subject isn't great, but I am my most patient model!! When I get time I will post some pictures of my creation.
