Hardly worth the wait

It was a week ago last Saturday that I attended an Olympus street walk in Colchester, hosted by the local London Camera Exchange and led by Rob Pugh. I found the event more useful for watching how Rob works and hearing what he had to say, rather than taking any great pictures myself. But I did get a few, even though they are hardly worth the wait now that I've finally caught up with the processing.


The obligatory passer-by.




In a world of her phone.




A trick of the tail.




Graffiti crime.




The world beneath our feet.

A nice set John. I especially like the last one - is that Rob Pugh?

I think I'd topple over if I tried that!

Thanks Stewart, pay for my flight and I'll be there!

Oh, just remembered, I don't have a passport!

Yes, it's the man himself!
