Monday walk to town

The weather was really bright and clear yesterday but cold, especially so for me as I just had a haircut, not that I have much in the first place !!!!!

Bike Trouble

This young woman was having trouble starting her bike, the guys standing in the background offered to help, but it was politely refused.

There’s quite a bit of construction work going on in the city, hopefully this won’t be further student accommodation as the city is already awash with it.

On Sunday there was a lot of lovely birdsong coming from my garden, so I grabbed the camera and took a look, it was a small flock of Goldfinches.

This is crop from the photo, the longest lens I have is only a 300mm equivalent.

Drab

The weather was even more drab and greyer than yesterday. But a need for food (myself and the cats) required a visit to town.

New used camera

I just picked up a secondhand Olympus E620, it was a good price and arrived yesterday. I wanted the slightly bigger viewfinder and easy access to asa, focus and user mode settings without having to navigate through menus. So I took advantage of the good weather this morning and walked into town to try it out and of course replenish the cat food stocks.
