Have decided to replace my dead camera with a used E30 body - if I can find a decent one!In the meantime, in desperation!, I've dusted off my somewhat ancient, battery-gobbling Minolta. Took it out yesterday to hunt for a few shots.
Took this one at an angle and gave a slight colour tweak in Pshop to try make it a bit more interesting! Thank you for looking.
Regards, Lavina.

Good subject, composition and depth of field, with just the right amount of rustiness Smile
