Did you hear about... Talk about (almost) anything, within reason and it can - even should - be about something not directly related to photography.

Christmas gifts, over the years.

Amused me to see these.

I remember some of the brands but not the advertisements - just before my time.

Yes. It's the products and brand names that I remember, and not the ads.

Although I do remember seeing a few of these. But don't know where, as they are almost all, before my time too.

Re: Remember any of these ?

Haha! I have been guilty of wrapping some jokey presents in the past


Julia and I did give ourselves an early Christmas present of an enormous OLED TV - it's amazing. My excuse is that I can look at photos on it...

Haha! 65" - I was even sceptical it would fit the wall at first!
