Hi Nathan,

And it appears all shot with a digital! :-) I'm finally learning to see a
difference in how film vs. digital looks. That by the way is not a negative
comment, as your photographs, apart from your usual very interesting content
have colours and a sharpness that one only sees in digital format.

Once again it's the Nathan eye at work on the street! :-)

Good on you! :-)
