As to lenses, I finally bought a Cooke instead of a more expensive lens. Also a Ross wide angle. We can always exchange these for a more expensive one later, if we find the Cooke does not fulfill our requirements. Mr. Hillon had recommended the Cooke, so I decided to risk it.

After a very late lunch made some minor purchases, water colors pencils etc at Winsor & Newton’s.
