Merry Christmas if that’s your kind of thing.
This is all you’re getting, it’s Christmas day and if you think i’m getting all creative when there’s people to see and gifts to give . . . . . . .. . .

Full of energy this morning due to a last-minute cancellation of my Cycle Clubs winter solstice ride out. The weather has been fantastically winter wonderland like, which is beautiful to look at but not all that cycle friendly. Decided to head out into the city early as it’s a wonderful place to be when it’s deserted, it has a feeling of expectation at the moment with all the shops bursting with Christmas gifts. I love just drifting around looking for little abstract details.

I recently received an odd little adaptor that allows one to mount Nikon lenses on a Canon EOS body, not one of the most common photographic needs but I do happen to have a lovely old manual focus nikkor 85mm f2 which is a beautiful portrait lens. It also makes for a wicked little detail finder, so that was strapped on the 5d for a fun little play thing today.
