Those of you who have been reading this toss for a while may remember a chap by the name of Alan who used to leave the always welcome and usually amusing comment here. Many of you will also be aware of his blog, a much loved fixture on my sidebar since the old 'tripod' days.
Unfortunately I have just learned that Alan died on 23rd January. My condolences to his family and friends.
If you're not familiar with his blog do yourself a favour and get over there. He was a bloody fine photographer and every post is a treasure. He also very kindly consented to involve himself in this shambles a few years back -do read the post because it's hilarious.
Alan dead, my boss still alive. There is no God.
