    So, been and gone and done it. The huge & heavy 100-400 Mk11 Canon has gone.....irrevocably.

    I now have the Ricoh GR11. At the same time, I so liked the feel of the Sony RX100 mk3 that I got that too to keep the Ricoh company.

    These are the first utterings from my new combo of GR11 and my reflexes.

    Feels like home!!!!

    Y'see? You are making it your own already! I particularly like the chap in the flat cap.

    Thanks Bill. In all my street work I try to look for a unique look or style or an interaction between people. I think I managed it here. I could feel the pounding in my chest, of excitement, as I took the shots. Could feel the blood in my veins, it felt so good. I had forgotten just how good. Now I realise I had been jaded for quite a while. I have added a photo at the beginning that I had forgotten to include. My best from the day I think.

    The perceived movement in the lady with the cigarette makes that image quite super.

    Thanks......I'd like to claim it as deliberate, but it just came out like that.

    Now, THIS is what I'm talking about. The right tools for the right job, the right photographer and you get excellent results that require no qualification. Great job.
