Friday 1 July 2016 – Trying out my new Nikon camera

I spent today dodging the rain on Merseyside to take some photos with my new camera. Some are below.  You can see more of my photos on Flikr

Thursday 30 June 2016 – New Nikon camera


I bought a new camera today, a Nikon Coolpix L330. Been needing a new camera for a while as my last one had broken and I was relying on a friend’s camera. Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, except to make sure working properly, so looking forward to doing that tomorrow and over the weekend. There’s a rally in support of Jeremy Corbyn in Liverpool on Saturday and the Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth is in Liverpool on Sunday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Cunard Building – the company’s headquarters until the 1960s when it moved to Southampton. These will be two events I’ll be photographing with my new camera over the weekend. I’ll put them on Flickr as always. You can view my photos on my  Flickr site.
