I was just congratulating myself last week for going about four years without having a cold or flu, so foolish. Friday the throat started to feel sore, got a really annoying dry cough, and an aching head, so I have now got Man Flu. At least I’ve got a film to process if I’m going to have to stay indoors, and some old negs I’d like to scan.
I wondered if the Ricoh Shotmaster would be any good for street photography, I’m never sure about autofocus cameras when shooting from the hip. There was a continental market in the town a few weeks ago, the weather was good so I thought I would give it a try.
Face In The Crowd
What You Doing
I was pleasantly surprised, I’m sure the bright light helped as the camera would have stopped down to give a good depth of field.
A cold but sunny day for my walk to the city. Visited some places I knew, but hadn’t been to for a while.
This is new, I’m not a fan of pet shops.
I am a fan of electricity sub stations though.
Used to be called Zanzibar, doubled up as a roller skating rink on Sunday mornings, went there with my niece and nephew a few times. I would love to go roller skating again, but there’s not a rink nearby .
I’ve photographed this before, not sure what these things are but they are on sale for only £3.00, was tempted !
It was lovely and sunny today, about time. Having just had a haircut ! really felt the cold but the sunshine lifted my spirits. Most of the photographs were on a film camera today, I couldn’t resist this shot though while en route to the supermarket.
It was a lovely bright day, a little bit cold, ideal walking weather. So off I set to town with my Olympus E620. According to my MSN health & fitness phone app I walked just over five and a half miles.
I took with me 14-42mm and 40-150mm lenses with a polariser.
Last night I had a Beer & Curry evening with the lads. I’m slowly recovering !!! According to the weather report it was supposed to have been cool but dry, it was cool but wet, I’m sure a sprig of seaweed and a pine cone would probably be a more reliable method of weather forecasting. Tried out a new pub “The Blue Boar” named after an old inn (now demolished) where King Richard 111 spent his last night in Leicester before riding to his doom at Bosworth. A real beer drinkers pub and they also brew their own beer which was excellent. Moved on to a pub closer to the restaurant, and a friends band were playing there, all in all a good night out.
