So you think you can write a book (handbook, whatever) on unnawata fotografy? There's another sometimes on these pages who thinks rather like you, and has done the same.

Now I have absolutely no idea how your books differ but I've been doing this unnawata fotografy lark thingie for the best part of 50 years and i have yet to feel the need to write a book about it.

But what would I know?

Didn't you do 'Jazz-mag' photography?.. or have i got that wrong?
I turned down the Telegraph colour supplement because they didn't pay enough. You're talking to someone from the days when the people that did it got the money. Nowadays, the people that count the money nick it all. Ah, the good old days and how times change! The accountants are doing all the recreational drugs now.

Give the guy a break...

I'm a great fan of Dray. I just wish we didn't see so many boats sink, together!

Christian, many of us have dived with Dray and have seen first hand just how good his photography is. Seems like you are having a dose of sour grapes.
