'cos it's coming up to Christmas and just a bit of fun, I thought I would share stuff - both photographic and not - that I have "found" during 2015 that I think has improved my life in one way or another. If you are short of inspiration for a gift or two, this may help. Feel free to add your own to this list! Photographic: Cordweaver camera straps - I can't believe what good value these are. I have a "Cordy Classic" on my X100T and it is superb. Music: Hozier - The single, "Take me to Church" has justifiably won awards, but the album as a whole is excellent. This lad will go far. (warning if you click on the video - parental advisory) Movies: The Martian - by far the best movie I have seen this year. Who knew Matt Damon could act?! Food: Maple butter - food of the gods, second only to bacon. Where has this been all my life!? Stationery: Lamy fountain pens - the AL-star has replaced a Montblanc Meisterstuck platinum LeGrand as my daily carry. I use a fountain pen because I am sinistral, and it keeps my handwriting neat(er). They are the perfect combination with Leuchtturm 1917 notebooks which have replaced Moleskine in my life because they are better made and indexed!
