“Expect the unexpected” is often the best approach when wondering into a new environment.

Travelling to Photokina with Paul Kenny in 2008, on the invitation of HP and Innova, we certainly weren’t ready for the experience awaiting us.

A truly bizarre event on a scale so very hard to describe.  So much hustle and bustle, much of which was composed of men wearing camera-shaped jewellery…

From the maelstrom emerged the calm of a new acquaintance, Jim McHugh.

We had a great couple of days with Jim — stumbling across this video of him on the Polaroid website brings back some happy memories:
