A dandy macro!

What a day! An early start (for a Sunday morning, anything before 10 is early 😉 ) 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  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” ad infinitum…) , and then off home.

Summer is certainly on the way!
