Laurie Campbells Life in the Wild

Mention the prospect of photographing fungi and many people will conjure up thoughts of being in an autumnal woodland setting looking though leaf litter or inspecting dead timber for likely specimens on quiet, damp days. True, these conditions may be perfect for fungi to thrive, but there is a lot more to getting to grips with these fascinating subjects than that.

A few weeks ago in mid May, for example,

I was reminded of the fact that it’s possible to find and photograph fungi during any month of the year. I was running a week-long nature photography programme and had

Lancer – changing roles for changing times…

Lindsay Peacock profiles the Rockwell B-1B.

WHICHEVER WAY you look at it, Rockwell’s Lancer has experienced a pretty chequered career. It emerged in the mid-to-late-1960s as a contender to satisfy the USA’s Advanced Manned Strategic Aircraft ( AMSA) project, which itself came about in the first place to fill the gap left by abandonment of the North American B-70 Valkyrie. Emerging victorious in the AMSA competition in 1970, the original B-1A made it as far as the flight test stage, with the first of four prototypes getting airborne for its maiden sortie from Palmdale to Edwards AFB, California on December

Ivor Matanle traces the history of a range of folding 35mm cameras made in Germany

THE KODAK Retina, the world’s first folding 35mm camera, had been an icon of what was then called miniature photography throughout the latter part of the 1930s. The Second World War proved only to be a brief interruption to the supply of these much admired folding precision cameras to most of the world. However, as with all other relatively expensive cameras, UK import controls made new Retinas more or less unavailable in Britain during the late 1940s and early ’50s. This limited the extent to

Karrier Trucks

The town of Huddersfield is perhaps best known for having been both a centre of production for textiles and as a hotbed of civil unrest during the industrial revolution. This opposition to industry did not have a permanent effect upon the town (something to do with the Government stationing 1,000 soldiers there at the height of the unrest) as in 1908 Herbert Clayton with his son Reginald established the firm Clayton & Co and with a small workforce started building commercial vehicles.

Their first lorry, the imaginatively named “Model A” was fitted with a Tylor engine which delivered power to

JDAM — The future of bombing

Lon Nordeen examines the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), one of the most significant new weapons to enter the US military arsenal in recent years.

EFFECTIVE ATTACK missions against targets in Kosovo, which NATO pilots have been flying since March 24, 1999, have been a challenge due to the rules of engagement pilots and commander have had to follow. They have also been complicated because of poor weather. The newly-fielded Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) dropped from the B-2A Spirit stealth bomber has allowed NATO forces to hit targets when poor weather hampered the effective employment of laser-designated or TV/Imaging

JARGON BUSTER server terminology


A method by which routers dynamically assign IP addresses to computers on an internal network, allowing for simple, largely configuration-free set-up of client machines. In setting up our server, we opted out of DHCP to assign a static IP address, to prevent our server getting lost on our local network.

DOMAIN NAME A human-readable web address that saves us from remembering the IP addresses of computers we want to access on the Internet. It can be broken down into sections, with geographic delimiters (if any) at the end of the address (.uk, xa, and so
