The Swans of Verulamium Park with my X-Pro1

Look, I realise the title is rubbish… Never mind. Today we visited St Albans (more difficult than usual as the road to the M25 is being resurfaced). I decided to take along my X-Pro1. I apologise now that I have precisely zero interesting shots of anything interesting from the park other than Swans (and an …

The people of St Pauls

Having failed to bring my G5 with me today for some testing with the 7-14 (battery, what battery??) I did at least have my E-M5 with me. I wanted a walk at lunchtime for a bit of exercise and so I decided to head down to St Paul’s cathedral. I couldn’t really be bothered to …

Trafalgar Square

First of two posts this evening. First of all, yesterday I visited Trafalgar Square in central London. The evening before I had been telling some poor guy he needed to visit the square with a UWA lens, so I decided to take my new 9-18 down there. I was very happy with the output from …

London Wall by Tower Hill

The official parade of British medallists and other competitors took place today in London, commencing near Bank, not far from where I work. I ventured down armed with my E-M5. Unfortunately I had forgotten the parade …

A walk through rural North London

The farmland where I photographed the wheatfield last week is part of Rectory Farm in Enfield. For a year or two it has lain fallow but this year it has been planted as an arable farm. I believe I once found a post on google stating it was a Dairy farm prior to the devastating …

Cambridge for a picnic

The city of Cambridge is a university town and the administrative centre of the county of Cambridgeshire, England. It lies in East Anglia, on the River Cam, about 50 miles (80 km) north of London. The first town charters were granted in the 12th century, although city status was not conferred until 1951. I’ve loved Cambridge …

Charlotte Dujardin’s golden postbox

Came across this on my way back from the post office to pick up a parcel this afternoon. It’s painted gold in honour of Charlotte Dujardin, the British double gold medalist and dressage rider at the 2012 Olympics. Charlotte was born in Enfield which is where this postbox is located. M9 and Summilux 50 ASPH …
