Alistair and Lydia playing around at home as test out a Nikon D70.
Not a very good picture this week. However it's one of the most important for a long while, yes, Lydia had her milk challenge this week and she's been given the all clear.
She can now eat dairy products. It's great news and her first request is a doughnut with coloured sprinkles. I think it looked better than it tasted but it's a start and the chocholate buttons went down a treat.
On April 25th 1986 the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl in the Ukraine exploded spreading radioactive material across most of Europe. To mark the anniversary I spent ten days photographing some of the abandoned villages and the town of Pripyat in the exclusion zone as well as meeting many people involved in the disaster twenty years ago.
Not the most flattering picture, but this is myself and Stephen Mulvey inside the nuclear plant at Chernobyl. We carried dosimeters during our trip to ensure we didn't expose ourselves to high levels of radiation.
