Weight and Stuff Report – 25 June 2013

No change today, never mind, etc.

I left the house a bit earlier today, with some vague intention of getting to work early, but them I looked at the blue sky, and I looked at the park, and had to have a quick play with the Fujifilm X-E1. The lake was looking nicely reflective:

It was the kind of morning where having to stop taking photographs and go to work to earn the money to buy the toys I take photographs with seemed like a terrible idea. But I had to do it, and so I caught the bus to work. My journey was interrupted because of a road accident that must have happened moments before my bus got to the spot. I’ve no idea what had happened, but a car was standing sideways across the road, and apparently the driver was injured. The bus driver (after going to see if he could assist, and then radioing for an ambulance) managed to get the bus safely on its way after a few minutes.

Some toys arrived during the morning, but as I had an appointment, followed by being taken out to lunch, I didn’t have a chance to play with them. I’ve had a quick look now, and I hope to take them out tomorrow. But for now, here’s a hint of what’s to come:
