A new waterproof camera, a trip into Manchester, but not one drop of water to put it through its paces.

Nobody took any notice of the bright orange camera, and to be honest it's no stranger than tourists holding up iPads to take photos, probably a lot less strange. Nobody looks twice when we use a compact camera.

So I found a few architectural items of interest, plus a couple of girls intensely studying their DSLR.









There's no doubt that being in the city centre so often does make it more and more difficult to find new places, but it could be kept going for a while yet!

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
