I don't care if he has a oedipus complex as long as he loves his mother.

You never know - one day I might get a book together. I still buy books, because I am addicted to them, but Blogging is, I dunno, a useful 'vent' as it were . . I am always up way too early, and need to occupy my time!
It's also a great way to hone your writing skills . . .

Phil a man after my own heart did have a giggle and I agree one hundred pc with you .
this thousands of pounds for a photograph and cameras for that matter have little value in the real world , but rich peoples use them as a way of investing there money.
you will only get large sums of money if you are or was famous it dose not matter how good the photo is .
as Bailey said something like, if they want to give me that much money for a print I will take it ..
so argentum your question /thread can be answered. to some people they are worthless and to others priceless and if you became famous or infamous then the sky's the limit ..

Thanks Paul - you know the old humble Kodak amateur cameras were pretty darn good actually . . wish I still had ours. I do however have my mother-in-laws - an original Agfa Silette. Really posh but still takes a fantastically sharp picture.

What happens to my 'legacy' is up to the kids and their situation at the time I cast of this mortal coil. I won't care, I shall be dead!! I still have all my father's negatives (some from WW2) and many of his slides that have not gone too mouldy. They are a bit of a burden but I wish I had the energy and incentive to do something with them: I have enough trouble coping with what to do with my own!! I expect I will hang on to them until they get in the way - at present in a WW2 Ammo Box that was my mother's kit box in the RAMC during the war, that lives under the bed in the spare room; now that has sentimental value and is useful!!

Dear Mike,

Please do something with the negatives. I have recently restored and re printed 85 WW2 photographs of gliders. They were done so that a chap could re build a gilder seen in all the photographs. To me they just looked like pretty average photos of a glider on a field, but to the chap who is building the gilder, simply gold dust.

Please, dont ever throw them away. I'd rather take the burden off you and print them.
