#4 March

Last week a wave of nostalgia came over me as I was searching the internet for photographic ideas and equipment . A long time ago I owned the Nikon D3s camera, I have always regretted selling / traded it in, to buy the Nikon D810. The D810 and I didn’t get on very well. Anyway I found a Nikon D700 with a very low actuation count in great condition. With the power of a credit card the camera was now mine all I had to do was find a lens. Low and behold my local camera shop had a mint condition Nikon 24/85mm f3.5 to f4.5 zoom lens that was going for a reasonable amount. Sold !…..Now I have some old / new kit and one is wanting to try it out.

As your all well aware the covid-19 issue is keeping people at home to work I’m not able to work from home so I still commute across London on my bike. Naturally things are quite a lot quieter than normal. The weather yesterday the 26th March was sublime. Cold but great light. D700 has to come out for a test run, I pop it into my rucksack and set of for work late in the afternoon.

Three images of London in late March for your pleasure. What do I think of the “Oldie but Goodie” camera ? Its great ! I love looking through an optical viewfinder again. The D700 files are really very good, you need to process the RAW’s to get the most out of them. But as they are not huge my MacBook Pro easily crunches the data.

The Milestone Hotel in Kensington High Street.
Wellington Arch on Hyde Park Corner.
Victoria Tower, the Palace of Westminster. This is the southern aspect of the building at the northern end is the Big Ben clock tower that most people will be familiar with.
