At least I took one

Visited Maldon on Saturday, a dull day so typical of this spring. Took just one shot with my XZ-1 but that's one more than I usually take these days!

One good one is better than a 1000 iffy ones.

Nothing wrong with that John. As Paul said a good composition. Looking forward to the 999 others.

Re: At least I took one

I often take my XZ-1 out with me, it can really produce some good images, as you so competently demonstrate.

Clearly you've not lost your mojo, John. The XZ1 is still a damn good camera, mine remains operational, it has a better macro mode than XZ2.
