Having been on Flickr for the last 8 years, without a hint of getting an image featured on the Explore gallery, I have now had, on 26th Jan 2021, my fourth image selected in as many months. Its like waiting for a bus, all of a sudden loads come at once! Still I’m not complaining.
This was another shot captured at Scawby Park prior to the current Lockdown #3.
Having been on the lookout for well over a year for a new camera backpack, I’ve finally settled on the Shimoda Action X50, which I’ve now been using for a couple of months. And whilst these bags are good, they’re by no means perfect. Some might even say they look a little ugly, and they’re certainly not cheap!
Unfortunately, due to the various Covid restrictions, I’ve not been able to use it as much as I would have liked. But I feel that I’ve now identified sufficient aspects of the bag to undertake the review.
So check out my YouTube video to find out what, in my opinion, is Good about the bag, what’s Bad, and dare I say, what’s Ugly!
For clarity, all items shown in the video were purchased by myself.
Again I was fortunate enough to have an image I posted on Flickr, make it onto their Explore page on 6th Jan 2021. This image, taken near to Horkstow, North Lincolnshire, was captured just prior to new national Covid lockdown restrictions coming into force.
Other than getting a few snaps whilst out walking the dog, who knows when we’ll be out on photo shoots again?
The above photo, taken at Scawby Park, North Lincolnshire, was selected yesterday to feature on Flickr’s Explore page. Very nice, and only the second time I’ve had an image selected, though I’m never quite sure the criteria by which they select items!
I recently ventured into the woods to record my first on location YouTube video. In this video I talk about the problems that can be experienced when trying to shoot within the woods and how by just moving your position ever so slightly can help minimise the problem.
