When I went to INDIA last February (what a ponse!), Ken and Patrick's gear got stuck in Dehli and they did not get it till the next day. Ken was so keen he got up and walked to the view he'd scouted the day before, he set up and,,,, it was still pitch black!
PS I managed to sneak a couple into the Lyn Painter Stainers Prize which I am truly delighted about. I had been working on one - a family portrait in the studio for ages over and unto Christmas. It's quite big (36 x 60) and a real labour of love (although Ella hated posing!).
