Cameras I need! – okay want

As I am unlikely to successfully take and prep many photos during the house move I was thinking what else I could post and due to some other blogs I have been reading my mind wandered to cameras I would love to own. Continue reading “Cameras I need! – okay want”

Spotted these on a walk near the LA river last week; is this where all the safes go to die?

Took this shot looking down from Verdugo mountains to Burback where it is very green and colourful after this winter’s rain.
