  • Cold Snaps

    Well it is cold today and these are just snaps!

    Taken this morning with my Olympus XZ-1, as I no longer have an E-System camera, during a (very) short walk.

          Both are fabulous. The crocus photo emerging through the snow is my favourite.........

            Liking the first one. It reminded me of another red phone box in Norway and under similar circumstances... also with an XZ-1.

            Pleased to see that you are still able to get out and about.

              I was pleased to get out, even if I didn't go far. Both these pictures were taken within 500 yards from home. The crocuses were thoughtfully planted in a raised garden beside the pavement, so I didn't have to bend too far. Shame I framed the phone box too tight to the top of the frame but it was so bright I had difficulty viewing the screen and shaky hands didn't help. On the plus side the bright light let me use a fast shutter speed! One advantage of the XZ-1 is it is no bother to carry.

                I don't think you could take a "snap" John even if you tried. Your natural photographers eye would just take over . Couple of nice shots there with the XZ-1. You've done a lot better than I have in the last couple of days, hardly been out of the house myself. Even the snowflake shot I took yesterday was from inside through the double glazing!

                  I think you are wise, Phill, I'm going nowhere today!

                    Fabulous 'Christmas card' opening, John. Love the yellow flower too.
