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 …

British Museum with my E-PL5

Now I am a bit more used to my E-PL5, I appreciate more of its finer points rather than its deficiencies. No one looks at it (I have a black model). I’ve never really believed the colour of lenses makes much of a difference to whether people notice you and your camera, but I do …

Impressions of the E-PL5

I bought an E-PL5 on a spur of the moment thing. I had sold my E-P3 a couple of weeks back, I missed it and I found a decent price body only on the E-PL5 and thought “what the hell”. Unfortunately, my first impressions were poor. The screen seemed tiny in comparision to either the …

Covent Garden

Today I took my E-PL5 to Covent Garden together with my 12, 25 and 75mm lenses. Covent Garden is a district in London on the eastern fringes of the West End, between St. Martin’s Lane and Drury Lane. It is associated with the former fruit and vegetable market in the central square, now a popular …

Meeting my parents for a family lunch

Today we went to Playhatch, near Reading, to meet up with my parents. They live in Wales about 3 hours drive away so, given our use of Skype, I’m pretty convinced that our son Daniel thinks my parents are characters in a computer game… In any event it was lovely to catch up. As ever …

London Wall by Tower Hill

So I should probably mention at the outset that the main offices of the firm I work for are on London Wall. A street in London named after the wall that used to surround the historic city of London. I hadn’t given it too much thought to be frank. Today I was looking for ideas …

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 …

Leadenhall Market

I really like Leadenhall Market. It’s a wonderful place to go and pretend you aren’t really in the City at lunchtime. The market itself dates back to the 14th century. It primarily sells fresh food; among the vendors there are cheesemongers, butchers and florists. Originally it was a meat, game and poultry market. The ornate …

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Some pictures from my visit to Hampton Court Palace Flower show this weekend. “The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is the largest flower show in the world. 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 …
