    I have to admit that this isn't one of mine, but a friend took this shot a day or so ago.
    I know where it was taken so I'm going to try for a few myself.

    I agree. They're a great camera. I use my 70 - 300mm lens most of the time for outdoor stuff, but stick to the 18 - 55mm for indoors and close-up work.

    Believe it or not, this was taken on a phone camera! These red squirrels are extremely friendly apparently. That's why I want to try to capture a few myself.
    ***Edit *** When I say "capture a few", I mean take a few shots, not catch a squirrel! :emoji_smile:

    Look at the road surface in my picture. Yep. It had been raining on that day when City did the open-top tour. May have stopped by the time they came past though.

    More into video than photography Houch, but if we're doing "that day", here's me two to the left from my bro in law (holding the cup), just about to board the coach from the Minstral Boy. Father in law took the photo, he had a good camera but only used it for snaps and landscapes.

    I've been visiting relatives in Cov last couple of weeks. We went to Ashow where my Great-Grandad is buried, and I noticed a lonely purple flower growing. I didn't have my Nikon D3200 on me, so I took this with my Samsung Galaxy S7

    A mate of mine was a regular in the "Minstrel Boy" for years. He died of heart failure aged just 40. His name was Tony Ford. Did you know him?

    Sorry to hear about that, 40 is no age to have that happen.

    No I didn't know him Houch I wasnt a regular... I was a relative of Pete King, the landlord at the time, so we blagged a couple of seats.

    Amazed at the quality of my daughters snaps last weekend at the Ricoh.
    Made mine on my Sony experia look pathetic.
    A wipe of the lense may have helped though.
    There's a photography show on at the NEC currently, I was surrounded by amazing Nikon kit yesterday but wouldn't have a Scooby. :-(
