Brazilica 2015


Britain’s biggest Brazilian carnival hit Liverpool again this weekend.

I always really enjoy this night, the crowds and the drums lift the whole city.

This was also the first time I didn’t take my SLR, but used my new Fujiilm X-T10 instead. I’ve still got a lot to learn about using this little camera, but it packs a punch. I feel I would have got more with my familiar Canon, but my back isn’t up to carrying a heavy bag of gear at the moment.


Had another evening walking round New Brighton waiting for my son whose cubs pack had an evening on the beach.

Kite surfers from my X-T10


I took the new camera out for a quick trial on the kite surfers off New Brighton. I’ve only used it a few times but I’m really impressed. Tonights test was how fast it shot and focussed and it was very fast on both counts.

It seems to be able to give my 7D a run for its money on frames per second if not burst rate but that might be down to the memory card.

New camera


Arrived yesterday. A shiny new silver Fujifilm X-T10 with XF 18-55 and 55-200mm lenses – (the first decent quality telephoto lens I’ve owned)

Had a quick run out with it last night. Pretty impressed with it so far although with no shooting mode dial, aperture rings and EVF its quite a bit different to anything I’ve used before.

July Sky


Had a great couple of hours out with my camera last night. Lots of fantastic skies, lots of missed lightning strikes out in Liverpool bay but a few captured ones over Liverpool.

Took my son to a farm visit with his cubs pack this week. So spent the hour waiting for him walking round the nearby wheat fields. I was hoping to see some Barn Owls like I saw there a few years ago, but there were none about!

Bike ride

Spent a few hours yesterday getting sunburnt on my bike around the Wirral coast.
