New camera

Obviously the best camera you have is the one you have with you.

Normally that’s my phone. Sometimes I’ll also have my ~4 year old Canon IXUS 115, which is compact, but takes some great photos.

But for my birthday I treated myself to a DSLR, a Canon 700D (spotted on sale + cashback offer + birthday contribution from family + birthday present to myself = hard to resist), and have been snapping away during lunchtime walks. Here’s a couple of pics from earlier this week with a telephoto lens borrowed from one of my sons. (We’re definitely a Canon family.)

More to come, you can be sure of it.

@Nathan, I don’t have it with me today, but the Flickr meta-data says it’s “EF75-300mm” – I think it’s actually an old SLR film camera lens my stepfather found secondhand!

The classic snap of the times is, that one in King Street, when trams in both Collins and Bourke are E class.

Pitty our current PM had to strike a B class on his ride along #11 the other day. Still, it should only take a few more deliveries to solve that matter.
