Along a path

Some walks are long, others short and this one fits in the latter category. The purpose was simple, to take some photo's using my old camera. While the new one does a good job, it is full of bloatware that I never use. The zoom is great for distant objects and it fits in my pocket okay. The old one only has 3X zoom, if I want it to be clear, is smaller and does not look like something worth stealing when in areas of risk. A while back, I thought a little trek with the pathways as the theme would do the trick.

So far the trail has been sort of dry

Seems I spoke too soon.

The last stretch, my shoes were muddy and a bit damp, but not soaked

I must admit that taking photographs in winter is becoming very boring, but that's usually the only time I'm here. The weather has been foul and is intent on not letting the side down. Today was dry for the morning, so it wasn't too bad.

The old camera still gives me quite good images, though the batteries are getting a bit tired and I don't know if I can find new ones. I've had it for 9 years now.

The camera I speak of is a Leica/Lumix DMX-FX10, they were made in 2007. I bought mine in 2011 and so it was 4 years old then and cost me the princely sum of 25 UKP. A checkout saw it had a 100% optically perfect lens (very rare), so I had it overhauled. It just takes great pic's. Zoom is only 4X, but that's okay and it looks like something a thief would not want to steal Smile

I'm a bit shocked that a 9 year-old camera is considered old.

Normally I run a travel blog, but when I'm not on the road I do other stuff to keep from getting bored.
