Test run!





     









































 




























  I love my new camera! It's going to take some getting used to and there were a few rubbish shots taken this afternoon while I experimented and got used to the weight of such a huge zoom, but it's a very enjoyable learning curve.

I gave my old Fuji to big monkey and he too produced some great shots - mainly of me playing but some others too.

We wandered around by the river and then up into Chinatown - it's the eve of the chinese new year so lanterns and tourists galore! 

We couldn't resist a visit to Won Kei's for tea, then wandered back across the river towards Waterloo. The temperature had dropped considerably so apart from a quick photo stop on Hungerford Bridge we didn't really hang about.

Back home for a warming cup of tea and an upload to see what we had produced. I am very pleased with my shots but realise I need to read the manual a bit more to get the most out of this fab bit of kit! There are certainly a few scrap pages that will materialise from this afternoons adventure. In fact I'm off to start now................
