Weight and Stuff Report – 19 June 2013

Oooh, back down again today, good stuff!

I had another lunchtime walk today. The Fujifilm X-E1 keeps demanding I take it out, and as the weather’s been rather nice, I’ve been happy to obey. I took a different route today, and amongst other places, visited Newcastle Civic Centre. It seems the Tyne River God forgot to pay the water bill again:

I used both of the rather nice Fujinon zoom lenses today (swapping them is becoming second nature, and it’s so much easier than with the much heavier Canon kit!). I got a moderately close view of the top of the tower:

Seahorses!

Which shows off the seahorses quite nicely. Then I got a bit closer. This is a cropped shot to show off some detail. I don’t recall noticing the higher band of seahorses before:

I’m really enjoying myself with my little Fujis!
