Yes, but I've been otherwise engaged trying to plan for a new venture (seeing as my existing one has been stuffed by COVID). Trying to keep an eye on what's going on, though, and thanks for asking :)

Glad ur ok 👍 

Hows the new venture going?

😁 we passed him a couple of times he did stand out as looking eccentric but that was it.

Thanks Caroline. Well, It's eventually going to be a new photography-related business, but whilst we're in lockdown all I can do is prepare. I'm just waiting for some equipment to arrive, after which I need to get some portfolio shots together. I can then update my website, after which I can start some marketing (and then wait!).

You can travel as much as you want if it’s for business, and adding images to your business portfolio is work ... and you can’t do it working from home ...

Depends what you’re photographing, if you earn a crust from weddings or school photos....

Good point ... there are a number of Rail photo companies ... Milestone 92 1/2 is the one we use, that compile original pics of the subject and sell a single or multi use licence to companies like ours  ...

But they have to go out and get the pics ... going out to work ... stood on a railway bridge near you ... not sure what LTF is targeting as his USP .... but best of luck .... respect ...

Good luck LTF and congrats on giving something else a go, all power to your elbow.

I've been having a bad condensation problem in my car for last couple of weeks. Noticed today that the driver and passenger side mats and floor were soaked. I'm putting it down to the Windshield cover I got a few weeks ago to combat the ice in a morning. It has two little flaps at each side that you put in the car and close the door on to keep it in place. Think it might of given enough of a gap in the door seal to let water ingress occur 

 

Will vacuum it all dry and stop using the cover. If it still carries on looks like I've got some detective work to do :roll:

Aygo. not had issues until last couple of weeks so pretty sure that the cover is the culprit. I know the old mk1 Aygo was prone to leaks but they sorted them for the mk2 model

Our 07 Aygo leaks like a sieve ... we park it with the windows open 10mm whenever it’s not raining ... otherwise its like driving a mobile swamp

My first mini used to do this, poking finger through floor just let the water run out 😁

Absolutely right but I need people, unfortunately. It’s frustrating but I’ll get there eventually.

I had a totally reliable, but self draining, Morris Minor as my first car, XVB 45. I drove through a ford in the village of St. Mawgan and jets of water squirted up my wifes dress ... .... not amused. But drained away as soon as we where clear of the ford.

I know how you feel i'm in a similar position, just use this time wisely for your preparations, you can still go out as has been said for work, and taking photos for your website is work. If you can get yourself an ID card as a freelance photographer who are classed as essential workers might help with any uncertainty :thumb:

Good luck with the venture :thumb:

This is true but be wary of over zealous law enforcement. It would be hard to prove on the spot what you are doing is business related depending on the location and subject, weddings are pretty much self explanetary, but how would you explain for example taking photos of people in a park, just something to watch out for.
