Cleaners launch their campaign at the LSE for fair treatment

It’s been harder work than usual to finish the ‘My London Diary’ entries for September, but I was determined to do so before the end of October, and have just made it. I’m not sure why, but I’m finding it harder to really get down to work, and there were quite a few things that took up rather a lot of time, both events that make the diary and those that are more personal.  Or perhaps I’m just slowing down…

I did spend quite a lot of time writing a new talk, which I’d hoped to have given by now, but the event was cancelled. It isn’t quite finished yet, but I think all except the last-minute touches. And I did get a new camera, and have been spending quite a bit of time reading the manual and trying without much success to get my head around it.  The D750 isn’t a great deal different from the ageing D700 it will eventually replace, but enough to make life a little difficult, and I don’t yet feel confident to take it out for serious work. The D700 has obviously reacted to its usurper and, with a little help from me, has decided to more or less cooperate with the SB800 flash again, at least sometimes.

There are no adverts on this site and it receives no sponsorship, and I like to keep it that way. But it does take a considerable amount of my time and thought, and if you enjoy reading it, a small donation – perhaps the cost of a beer – would be appreciated.
