A dandy macro!

What a day! An early start (for a Sunday morning, anything before 10 is early šŸ˜‰ ) and off to the cultural centre that is Wolverhampton – the race course no less, for a wander round the camera fair. It’s a bit of an overwhelming place in may ways, as the array of old film cameras is bewildering – I was going mainly for a mooch, but with an eye out for a couple more of the el-cheapo Olympus trip 35’s – one to stick in the car, and the other for the bike pannier – there were hundreds last time, but a total of zero this time – funny…

There were many Flickerists there today, and after we’d spent up (and some did spend!), had lunch, we all headed off for the monthly Flickrmeet, this time at Tolkien’s Ā old stomping ground, these days known as the ‘Shire’ near Sparkbrook, in good ole Brum.

The sun was out and the birds were singing, along with a healthy turn out, it ended up being a lovely walk along the river (stream ??) – blossom photos galore! I even got the IR camera out for the odd vista shot. A quick pint in a local Irish pub, which greatly amused the locals (“it’s the chuffin paparazzi” adĀ infinitum…)Ā , and then off home.

Summer is certainly on the way!
