Photo365 – Day 291 – French Horn Hotel

A traditional pub from Worksop that’s been empty for a few years. Renovation work has been done to the roof recently I assume to make the building weatherproof, but the scaffolding has gone so I guess it will stay empty for some time now. I thought I’d take a few shots of the intricate tile and glass work which will probably be lost when the rest of the renovation takes place. Taken with the iPhone and Hipstamatic.

Contax Symposium Mallorca

contax_guests

I attended the International Contax Zeiss Symposium at Richard Branson’s Hotel La Residencia in Deia, Mallorca

I was editor representing  Buying Cameras magazine.

The objective for Contax was to discuss the methods used for magazine lens testing and the quality of Contax lenses. They were not happy with the general reduction in magazine testing quality and were suggesting that the technical editors were no longer very technical and didn’t understand the finer aspects of lens performance. An interesting debate!
