Another tryout, pictures from The Gambia taken in 2000 with the older Olympus 500 Mju camera.

Test, pictures from a recent trip up North. I either get pictures in this format or too big. Anyway if you click on the picture it looks better.

Stunning pictures Robert. Please post more. If those were just a test, what more do you have!

Thanks for the compliments, appreciated. Two years ago I bought this Olympus TG-4 and hardly used it. This time I took it with me and tried to use it more often. Have some old photo's taken with Olympus 500. Many many years ago I used an Olympus OM 2.

Olympus is famed for their optical quality. Your photos are proof Robert, but however good the equipment, it is your eye that has captured these wonderful pictures. Fab. Please post more.

I find taking pictures at this time of year a particular challenge: short days, poor light etc. Here are some recent images:

The first four are in Ballaglass Glen. These guys were climbing up the river for fun. It was freezing...

No.1 Daughter at the wizard sculpture (apologies it is blurry in the first picture: I was using a totally manual lens and, being so used to the camera doing the thinking, forgot to change the aperture).

When No.1 Son was swimming we walked, and had coffee in a place with beautiful decorative plates on the wall:

The reason for our trip to Ballaglass Glen - to see the 'fairy' houses created by a Swedish art collective. Amazing things: created in Sweden and brought without any motive other than pleasure. Truly wonderful things.

On the 27th December there was a sponsored swim in memory of a wonderful lady (and great supporter of swimming) who sadly died of cancer at a young age. This is No.1 Daughter in the pool with various senior level swimmers (including one member of Team GB, the lady on the left). I foolishly agreed to swim, and when I arrived was pointed to the lane with this lot (the adults) in it. I declined. No.1 Daughter is a better swimmer than me at 9 years old. Swim with Team GB swimmers? No thanks. A pal did swim in this lane (and he's a decent swimmer). He told me these guys said to him "just keep swimming and don't worry about us - we'll swim UNDER you. And they did. He swam his best-speed freestyle, and they simply went under him.....

London in the 1920's. Seems more like 200 years ago than 100  ;)

My ole' Dad was born in 1920 - can't believe this is the times he lived in  ???

What is interesting is the number of jobs that simply do not exist now. There are doomsday predictions about the loss of jobs (see https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/27/jobs-risk-automation-according-oxford-university-one/), but clearly this was the case 100 years ago also.
