Cambridge by night

This was the first outing for my new camera.

My old camera is like an extension of my hand
and I can concentrate on capturing an image.

Unfortunately, it has low resolution and minimal features
and I had become bored with taking photos.

The new camera is only slightly larger
but it is taking me a while
to find the dials and small switches.

I thought that if I took it out at night
no-one would notice me fumbling

and accidentally taking pictures of my feet.

  10. I'm feeling a little bored with taking photos too - it's not my camera, it's just that my pictures seem to have become slightly formulaic. Like I know just how to do the shots I usually do. But I'm bored with doing them. The constant quest for the new and exciting - my biggest downfall.
