54? < that way

By pablophotographer
A bit of humourous capture, it can work with a square framing featuring only the yellow sign and not the number sign above, I know. Or it may come well too in black and white. But with the white wall behind it, the top part of the sign will blend with the background, don't go to the hassle of turning it black and white. But seen from the thumbnail looks like a man (body+hands made by the door, head by the circular sign, grimacing lips by the arrow).
Taken on a loan camera, it was really difficult to get in grips with. During that day, I was told I am too slow in my photographing, I was called a "film photographer"- that must be after waiting for 4-5 minutes for some birds to fly over a grid of lights between two buildings while my friend wanted to get a coffee, I just shot the grid at the end Smile I am glad I can still see and pick up subjects that others may oversee, like the trike featured in my blog and this. I fear one of the pictures I had taken on the day (a very good one) was not given to me. My opinion on the Camera is that it may take time to get used to it, especially of you move from film, buttons were all around the body. Its owner knows to operate it while it is still glued to his face, I had to take my eyes from the eypiece and search where the correct buttons which would change either the speed or the aperture were. The lens on it was zoom, I must have used it, or changed it inbetween shots. Less hassle than going into the bag for the teleconverter or the wide lens adaptor , but a prime makes you less wondering regarding focal length. But you know that, so enjoy... Good night.

Well spotted image, enjoy the humour...Grin.
I remembered that during the film days, I heard that people didn't change camera much.. Jane Bown's camera lasted perhaps 40 years. I'd had a film camera lasted nearly 20 years.. until I changed to digital. Of course, I'm not pro, only holiday snaps.. and I wasn't keen on photography either...but nowadays, one just can't catch up with digital, I started digital in 2006, and from bridge to DSLR, I've changed 4 camera now.. and I'm think to get a small one as well..there is no end. The Japanese are laughing now...we just keep buying the rubbish and paying good money for it...Grin
BTW, thank you for the comment. Sorry, I can't supply you more information about the cross. I've upload the whole view of the cross for you to have a look.
