As you can see, I am back from holiday and for once the weather in UK was mixed, no change there. Left 300c and with a brief stop in Doha, guess what the early evening temperature was, 310c. But I now see that those temperatures are ‘life threatening’ poor old Brits, always something to worry about. 🙂
Our visit to London went well, although after over 20 years of absence there was some ‘culture shock’ …….! We got given Oyster Cards that are used as pre-payment for travel on the Under Ground (Metro) excellent idea once one knows how to use them. I must get out more often me thinks. 🙄
Saw the ‘Mouse Trap‘ (Agatha Christie) yes I know it has run for many years but if you don’t visit the great metropolis……. Good fun and well worth the visit. In fact played the tourist throughout with a trip to the Tower of London and the British Museum.
One thing I did buy while home was two Op/tech straps for my F2 & F4 those being the heaviest 35mm cameras I have.
Here is a link (Op/Tech) as they are probably the best straps I have ever owned. Being made of neoprene they make a heavy camera instantly feel lighter and very much more comfortable. Not a bad thing when walking in the mountains or just having a camera on the shoulder for several hours
It’s now time to catch-up with all the posts that I have missed while away.
