2/13/12 – Hay Street crossing. 2/18/12 – depth of field. I haven’t found a good way to achieve this with the iPhone yet. The D70 can, but it seems like more work with the automatic than my trusty FM2.
I confess I don’t know the whole story. I wasn’t there to see the children or the conditions involved. What I do know is this: Social Services does not take removing a child from a home lightly.
