I note the smiley.  I think that that great mirror thwacking away would 
have spoilt the moment.  I've shot my F1 (old) in there with the

I will be delighted to meet you or any other visiting Lugger at the 
Leafe.  I find Colonial Williamsburg to be a bit sterile for my taste--at 
least so far as photography goes--but it is a lovely place to visit, and 
certainly one can make some nice images there, especially off season.  Mike 
Durling, whom I'm ashamed to say I've never met, is a photographer for the 
Colonial Williamsburg Foundation (I think), and would doubtless share pointers.
