    Spending almost 3 weeks in Paris, this time with my trusty K5, and testing myself by shooting in areas that by now have about two trillion photos taken... Great fun. So far a bit flat light and showery, so not totally happy with results, but fun nevertheless. Two not bad ones...all with my city zoom (18-135)

    Paris and spring - 2

    Shooting by Night has been more rewarding here in Paris; these are all available light with my much-loved FA77... The bokeh machine.

    Three weeks in Paris ain't bad.

    Paris and spring - street photography - 3

    I have never felt like a comfortable "street" shooter, but these are a few that approximate street/people shooting, again from a recent trip to Paris. Quite happy with the first in particular - shot from across the river with ~115mm setting on the 18-135 Pentax zoom.

    I LOVE packing the camera and heading to Paris. About time we did it again actually, it's been a while.

    Actually Glasgow might be the next city trip with photos in mind; last time I was there I had only my Lumix LX3, and it had trouble penetrating the gloom.... But I have relatives there and we enjoy Glasgow, so perhaps in the autumn.
