One of the reasons I decided to invest in the Olympus OM-D micro four thirds system and divest myself of all my heavy old Canon gear was that the OM-D effectively does most of what my Canon did, but in a much smaller package. I travel a lot on business and wanted to be able to carry a professional level camera with me at all times. Even when fighting my way around London or wherever on public transport! I know it is fashionable to think you can record the whole world on your iPhone these days but the optics on digital SLR’s still far and away outperform that tiny little plastic disk on a smart phone.
So, the first real test of my new outfit was this week on a flying visit to the city of Plymouth in the south of England. Despite it officially now being Spring here in the UK the weather is pretty cold still. I only had a couple of hours in the evening to get out but luckily my hotel was near to Plymouth Hoe so not far to walk. These few images capture a particular mood of the moment for me. As Jeanloup Sieff said
“There are no reasons for my photographs, nor any rules; all depends on the mood of the moment”
These are my mood of the moment shots from Plymouth.
