  4. Ah, thanks chaps. If you’re interested I was cycling in central London today with my eldest son - Leake St is just behind Waterloo, tunnels where top graffiti artists and down and outs mix, a cool but slightly touristy place...I said let’s go there to see...and it was deserted. Weird. But compelling, strange. Anyway, another memory from a time none of us will ever forget. Hope all are well.

    Thanks Keith it was night and day really - I even had time to follow, crouch and take the shot! Nuts. Long may it last, now where’s that Kingfisher...

    Thanks 🙏🏻 Shot a rather unconcerned woodpecker today in Richmond Park - they’re normally off in a flash -not sure why they’re now much less skittish, Kestrels were the same the other day. Still lots of people around but no cars or bicycles wonder if that affects it?
  10. Clear low pollution skies in London make for an Ok moonshot for once - Venus and Saturn also clearly visible
  11. Agree Tim, much easier than Nikon or Fuji files IME. Leica were a joy to work with too.
  12. Yes it’s not that difficult or technically challenging really - get the flash off the camera with a cheap trigger set up, add a simple umbrella and you can have a lot of fun with flash.
  13. Lovely Tim - fresh out of the cellophane. You can always use it when out on your single exercise session of the day 😉
  14. I haven’t used it either but I’d trust Evan R on this, good guy and proper Nikon shooter (although also Leica Q2 now which I can’t criticise him for)
  15. Wednesday last week mid afternoon in London; eerie, surreal

    Trying to get out and about not so easy but the Barnes Wetland centre was still open yesterday and all the birds were in song, especially the Robins 😊 Robin_singing.jpg by -DaveBailey1-
  17. Love that Tillman, like a classic shot from the heyday of cycle racing 👍
  18. Thanks Richard and Les; square shot as well 🤔I think the 1:1 works well for some of the street stuff.
  19. My first port of call For lighting advice is the Strobist good suggestions on value set ups. Mostly the recommended kit can be bought off Amazon in the UK.
