Neighbourhood Stroll

I decided to go for a walk this afternoon… with the Olympus, which I feel as though I haven’t done in a while. I only wandered about three minutes from home, and I’m pretty sure I walked in a rectangle – down one street, across, and up along the next street – before heading home again, but it was enough to scratch the itch.

Although I don’t normally like to go out with the camera in the middle of the day, I didn’t find the experience unpleasant at all. The light was good, the shadows weren’t too harsh. The only complaint would be that it was very humid, and my hayfever (achoo!), but that’s what you get at this time of year. And I was in jeans (it was too warm for them, really), because I don’t feel ready to bare the pins yet. I feel as though I’ve just come out of a long winter, which I know is ridiculous statement to make, considering how mild Sydney winters are relative to many other parts of the world. Mind you, I did miss winter last year with the year off, so that’s my excuse. I know it’s a first world complaint, so I’ll shut up now.

Stroll with me…

It’s ‘tyresome’ when you can’t even have a cigarette without someone pointing the camera
