          Anyone who needs a day to learn to use an OM1n should take up watching paint dry as a hobby rather than photography.
          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

            Still got my OM1 from 1976 although it's far from mint having had a hard life.

                Excuse me but watching paint drying is fascinating. In fact I have made a career of it having spent the past forty years or so watching various types of paint drying on substrates from ships to aircraft to furniture to trains and motor cars, and it never ceases to fascinate me.

                Better still, sometimes it doesn't dry, which is when things get really interesting. Causes can range from simple solvent entrapment to more complex problems such as oxygen inhibition or moisture contamination in unsaturated polyester resins or lack of mobility in epoxy resins owing to low temperatures. The cure of epoxies can also be inhibited by styrene monomer if applied over incompletely cured GRP (often incorrectly referred to as fibreglass) composites.

                Then there are conventional alkyds, which are another type of polyester, although better known to most people as enamels. These dry by absorbing oxygen from the atmosphere to from a loosely cross-linked polymer. Excessive thickness often causes problems because the paint (or varnish) cannot through-dry. However, alkyds never stop drying, which is why they gradually become harder and more brittle until they eventually flake off.

                And there is another problem: the oxygen free radicals formed by this process cause yellowing of the paint unless it is regularly exposed to light; which is why the white paint in the cupboard under the stairs, and on skirting boards where it is covered by carpet, rapidly become yellow, whereas the same paint applied outdoors remains brilliant white.

                    That was actually fascinating Nigel thanks. Yes I was being serious.

                        I'm at Peckforton Castle next Wednesday. I will be en route from the Lake District to Bristol!

                        Looking forward to meeting Damian 'The Big Dog' McGillicuddy and some birds of prey. Sounds an interesting combination

                          Gone down with shingles over the weekend, which has affected my right arm and hand, to the point I can't operate the switches on the camera easily! I just hope it's cleared up enough by the experience day, though the NHS website is suitably cheerful on the subject.... rash can take 4 weeks to clear and pain can last for weeks after rash 😢

                            (specially as it's probably rather difficult/painful for you to cross your own )

                              Ouch! That's bad luck.
                              I hope it clears up in time.
