Bottomz Up

Nik's dad, Malc, got Rik and I a rather cool present (the subject of today's photo) from the States.

We both got a lighter, a carrying pouch, spare flints, a whick and a compact, metal ashtray. These Zippo lighters are different from the regular style in that they are branded 'Bottomz Up' which means they have their data coding stamped on the top and bottom. I think you will agree they look pretty cool.

I have to say this little LX3 is the Bee's Knees. This shot was taken while I was talking to Nik in our kitchen. It was hand-held at 1/20s, in very poor light and the LX3 barely breaks out a sweat. Beautiful camera! I can't recommend it enough.
