Where does the name 'Speedalight' come from?
Terence Donovan's (1936 - 1996)
Terence Donovan might have been a great photographer. He may just have been in the right place at the right time. However something I heard him say made me laugh.
In TV film of him, he is shown with a model out in a field somewhere taking photographs. He has his assistant running around fetching and carrying and I suspect that he was showing off to the TV cameras.
He keeps saying, after each instruction to the assistant, in a strong London accent,
"Come on, speedalight, speedalight."
meaning, of course, 'Hurry up, speed of light, speed of light'.

What relevance has all the illustrations/photos etc used on this site have?
None really. I just like them.
