    Whilst working my way through the photos from our recent holiday to Italy, I found myself processing this self-portrait (not a "selfie", oh no, not ever, no...) As I sought the mid point in Photoshop I chanced to click the dropper upon my increasingly silvery mane. Presto! Perfect exposure!

    Clearly I am now 18% grey and no longer need to carry a separate card, simply metering instead off my noggin...

    Silver threads among the gold (or black, as the case may be)....

    You do remember the first line, right?

    In my case it would be a 50 - 50 mix of pink card and snow blindness
