Finally, after a number of years thinking about it, and a Christmas without film for the camera, I've splashed out and bought a digital camera.
It's an Olympus MJU 800 compact digital which seems to be so packed with features, I'll be learning about it for the next six-months.
While I still have great affection for my old film SLR, this camera is going to be a lot more convenient, - and lighter, to carry on bike rides and walking, so hopefully it will encourage me to get out even more.
These are the very first photos off the camera, but clearly they will not be the last. I will be attacking Flickr a lot more now I don't have to wait for processing.
Clearly, from the first few shots I've taken, I've got a bit of learning to do, but it's something I'm looking forward to.
Sorry about the kite flying yesterday, just my little way, but I was pretty excited about doing this blog, - so that part was true!
