Yep and trust me it's kinda weird in the viewfinder seeing it in B&W, then
look at real life in colour. It makes a Rocky Rollie horror show look like a
Friday the 13th picnic. ;-)  Particularly after several hit's of Lagavullin!

Just give those electronic wildmen a bit more time and they'll set-up any
old effect you want. Imagine a Lagavullin golden colour like an old western
movie in sepia? ;-)

I don't doubt some of those electronic wizard's could do a nice '60's
spaced-out effect for any demands.:-)
