Bath stone looks fantastic in the autumn sunshine and with my elbow well on the way to recovery I couldn't resist picking up my DSLR again. For my first outing I probably should have chosen a small light lens but these were all taken with my 70-200 f/2.8 which is the heaviest lens in my bag...
Earlier this year I bought a FujiFilm x100, a fixed focal length digital camera with styling and controls reminiscent of traditional film cameras. It's small size and weight makes it's the perfect camera for a restless photographer with his arm in plaster!
Typing this with my left hand is tricky, editing pictures with my left hand is trickier and thanks to all the controls being on the right, using a DSLR with my left hand is pretty much impossible. Which is why as a right handed photographer this 'self portrait' of my right arm is not great news!
Today is meant to be the hottest day in ten years which reminded me of Lottie and James who earlier this year picked a freakishly hot day in May to tie the knot. The wedding took place at Newton Park which is Bath Spa University's main campus. The venue has some beautiful gardens and architecture which make a fantastic wedding backdrop.
Bath is great for unusual events, there is always something going on and last week it was the Pearl Izumi Tour Series finale. The tour pitches teams of elite riders against each other on challenging city centre routes throughout the UK and having seen other rounds on TV I was looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.
