Your comment about doing photography at Uni many years ago takes me back to my days at Art College in the early 1980s.
I did photography during my yearâ€™s foundation course and liked it; I do so love the dark. I can see myself in one of those tiny pitch black cubicles with a girl I was later to date, unravelling film from one little tube to another - then to the developing room and the smell of the acid and developing fluid - ahhhh
I loved the SLR cameras as well; they used to weigh about 2 kilos LOL.
I must admit it was a drawn out process and todayâ€™s digital cameras are so convenient, they have become such a huge part of the internet research/retail/personal website revolution. I hear that 8 mega pixels is equivalent to the accuracy the SLR
I have 6 mpx that does me
Ref your vase/geode - the ICET link is interesting, I remember the thread well.
I can also see the 'Toso' link you are getting Anne.
I am getting an identical vase in virtually the same colours as yours in book J Miller 2005 pp316. I see they a few vases attributed to 'Toso' - what Toso they are reffering to is anyone's guess - Ivo mentions (A-Z) about 9 or 10 likely candidates from Alberto Toso & Cie, Aureliano, Barovier, Fratelli to Toso Vetre d'Arte :? :?
I use these Millers books less and less these days :roll: :roll:
