The other day I happened to pick a book on photography off my bookshelf as I wanted something to browse through as I had my coffee and out of it fell a card. In it was written , “To Mr Bigwood. Thank you for all your help and encouragement with photography. We will miss you. Good luck. Nicholas Littlemore”

Nicholas was a student at Barker College in Sydney when I was the Publications Officer and in charge of the College Photography Society.

Of all the testimonials I have received over the years, being reminded of this one all these years later is one of the most moving. Thank you Nicholas, wherever you are, and all the other students who made my job most rewarding in the darkroom on a Friday afternoon.

May you all have succeeded in your chosen lives.
