Emma enjoys researching/wrting articles ... she is currently working on a labour of love ... researching/developing/revising/restoring in HD and non-HD of photographic montage-graphics/story-boards/single images of specially designed Avengers/Mrs Peel wallpapers ... of all 52 episodes of The Avengers Series 4 and 5 ... Mrs Emma Peel/John Steed 1965-67 era for the Britmovie forum and members.
An absolutely enormous task ... as I'm re-designing all the wallpapers in either 1080p HD/720p HD or in 480p/360p resolution ... wherever possible ... or making the tricky decision to simply leave some alone when they work just as effectively at 360p res.
Have also been working on/experimenting with, some colourizations of selected Series 4 b/w images.
It has meant virtually starting all over again ... and the project is taking much, much longer than I ever anticipated ... but it's a real labour of love ...
