Enfield

I’ve been meaning to write this since early September and I have a bunch of other stuff to get through that’s queued behind it. The trouble is, this is a piece about the area I just moved from and there’s just so much to cram in. I can remember now how we discovered Enfield. Some …

Moving Home

First of all, if it seems like I haven’t been posting much here at the minute, I apologise. I’ve been moving house with all of the hard work, frustration and stress that brings with it. I also apologise for a lot of “dull” pictures of an empty house. But if you are here, you probably …

Indecision/Decision

It’s one of those times again when I’m in a bit of a quandary regarding an aspect of my photography kit. In particular, it’s my Fujis. First of all, let me point out that they are smashing aps-c cameras. Nothing wrong with that! However, all too often I’m using them at times of day I …

The Heritage Coast

This is actually a bit of a fraud, since I didn’t really visit the whole of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, rather just the beaches at Southerndown and Ogmore when visiting around Christmas time. It’s a stunning location, which I know well from growing up nearby, but also from last years Christmas visit with my GH3. …

Overstrand with many cameras…

This post was to be christened “Overstrand and Poppyland”, but I realised as I was writing it that I had no decent photos of Poppys from our trip to Norfolk! This week I was on holidays in Overstrand. Overstrand is a village on the North Norfolk coast, between Cromer and Mundesley. It was once (or a …

Kew Gardens with my RX1 and D800E in combination

This weekend I visited Kew Gardens in south west London. The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew are a series of gardens and botanical glasshouses between Richmond and Kew in Richmond upon Thames. It’s a botanical research and education institution with 700 staff as well as a visitor attraction receiving almost two million visits a year. The …

Vroom, vroom with the RX1

Sorry, couldn’t resist! This bank holiday weekend we visited the Enfield Pageant of Motoring, one of London’s biggest classic motor shows. It was great fun, although the autojumble did appear to be old bits of car on various market stalls… I jest. The Pageant has been a feature of Enfield life ever since 1978, when …

RX1: Flawed Genius?

No, I’m not going to come out with a bunch of superlatives again after my GH3 review. I really like my GH3 but it’s an expensive video camera at the minute – I just don’t seem to use either of my M43s cameras for stills right now. I think I need to sell a whole …
