    Spring has Sprung

    HI There
    It'll probably be winter again tomorrow, but just now spring has definitely sprung.

    Here are a couple of shots with the GX100:
    soon that old bike will have disappeared under the nettles (it's springs are definitely sprung!).:


    Here is the first of the plum blossom outside our front door:



    Let's see your spring shots (apologies for those living down under).

    Just this guy you know

    I'll have to get back to you on this one... the sun has set for today, but I just wanted to say I like your first shot... great camouflage!

    We missed you at the weekend by the way

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    I'd looked and thought 'that's a bloke' and then I thought not, but I'm glad you've confirmed it.

    Thank you - I can see our plum blossom out of the bedroom window when I'm having a bath . . (yes, we do have a bath in the bedroom!).
    it's a lovely time of year.

    Really like the second one Jono. How are you getting along with the GX100? Do you miss not having a viewfinder to use? That would be the hardest part for me so I think the evf would have to be in play even though it does not seem to get very good reviews.

    Many thanks Jono, it was one of my first shots using the GT-1 converter.

    I dropped my GR skiing and the built in lens cover stopped closing, also since it was minus 20 centigrade I think it effected the glue on the rubber grip which came loose. I've only just sent it for repair so I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

    Went out to White Rock this morning and got into the Spring spirit even though it's still colder here than normal. All taken with the GX100.
