Shooting Bright with the Ricoh GR

Living in another country, Christmas is always a little different from how you remember it as a youngster. The Finch family work on a ‘Dual FaceTime’ idea where I chat with them on my Christmas morning (+9 GMT) and then they speak to me on their, the true Christmas morning. It leaves me with a full day between calls, so I took to the streets and sought to get a grip on my Ricoh which had been sitting unused for a number of weeks.

I had felt that a lot of my shots had been very dark and while I liked the colour rendition a lot (helped by VSCO), I wanted to take advantage of the crisp weather and give VSCO more to work with.

Looking back, I should have gotten far closer than I did for this shot.

This bird almost took my bleeding head off as it swooped out of nowhere!

I’ve lived in places like this before. They’re always nicer inside than out.

I’ve shot this wall far too much, but this is one of my favourites.
