Alexandra Palace

I pass “Ally Pally” every day on the way to work. It is an inspiring building, particularly in the sun. Today I found myself awake at 6:45am, the legacy of a dodgy self made curry the night before. Rather than trying to get back to sleep I decided to take advantage of the golden hour …

Some more shots with the GH3

This is a short post, really just to show what I’m pulling out of the GH3 IQ wise and to make a few more comments. The wifi functionality, which isn’t even running properly yet, is great. The ability to be able to hook up an ipad or android tablet as a remote viewfinder is just …

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 …

So further to my last post, I am still on holiday in Norfolk. My partner and I decided that we wanted to take our son on a seal watching trip to Blakeney point, something we had done a month or two before he was born. I decided to put my M9 down and pick up …

Panasonic G5 First Impressions.

So, I received a new Panasonic G5 in the post yesterday. The story behind this is that there was an amazing offer that I picked up via the DPreview  forums for a body at £419. This isn’t much more than a G3 sells for new so I jumped at the chance. I really want it …

Anyone for Cricket?

So I was lucky enough to be taken to the Cricket at Lords today. I used to be a huge Cricket fan in my youth and followed both Glamorgan and England through highs and lows. As ever, you acquire responsibilities and other occupants of your time and you lose track of things that were once …

The Show is held in early July, and run by the Royal Horticultural Society at Hampton Court Palace in southwest London. The show features show gardens, floral marquees and pavilions, talks and demonstrations. Erected …
