Re: legal question, photo's, children n permission etc

My understanding is exactly as outlined by Tony R. Whilst we may try to avoid including others in our photos it is often inevitable. Chris L mentions the change in attitude to photographers but only partially nails the reason, yes 35mm film was precious and as a consequence people took fewer but bet...

Re: When label doesn't help much...

Re: Adding charcoal to mix

Forget the last bit, I just clicked the link and read it .......good grief, who's got time for all that?!
It would be interesting (In a disbelieving way) to know the plants each mix was tailored for.
