Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

I like documentary and street photography, but a bit of anything else on the side. I tend not to use Photoshop too much, just sticking to the basic adjustments, but sometimes break free to try something "arty".

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

Thanks to a tip off from KingBee I got myself a Panasonic G3 as it was so cheap. Having been used to a G5 there are a few things on the older model I'm not keen on but it's a bit of fun and is fine as a back-up. Using the kit lens that came with it, which is the standard 14-42mm non IOS, I've been trying it out. I can't believe it was over 600 when new though!!!





The annoying things are there's no eye recognition so you need to press the button each time you want to change to live view or viewfinder.
To use Manual you have to go into the menu and choose MF rather than just turn the top dial to M.
No silent shutter mode as it's not electronic.
Slow continuous drive. Only 4fps if using RAW.

Still, it's very lightweight and the snaps are OK, if a little noisy. Just a bit of fun.

Just a record shot of one of my resident foxes. There are two of them, sometimes three, and they come round for their tea at about 5.30pm every day. :)

Light v Light

Or rather, how wonderful that Venus and Jupiter, and a star, Ceti 15 - 795.51 light years away - can still hold their own against the glare of houselights. We've had some beautifully clear skies over London lately, but last night I noticed there wer...

Park Life

Just wanted to document our local park. The water had gone from most of the lakes, and masses of vegetation has taken over. All the fish must have died, and the ducks on parts of the waterways are sinking in a sea of algae. A sad sight. Some kind ...

Back to Normal?

Covent Garden was heaving with visitors yesterday. In fact, London seemed to be as full of people as usual everywhere I went, many from abroad too.
