Streets of London
The weather has been great and since I had to go to the Mongolian embassy in Kensington, I figured I will take the opportunity to go for a walk around London after and take some pictures.
Well, the walk ended up being from Kensington all the way back to Greenwich via Canary Wharf, so I guess around 10 miles. It was a nice walk though and I took over 300 pictures with the GR, went through 3 batteries and one 4gb SD card.
I took quite a lot of different pictures, from macros, architecture and landscapes/cityscapes but mostly it was street photography and pictures of people out and about enjoying the sun. So here a longer series of my street photographs I took during my walk to also give an indication of how the GR works for something the GR series is mostly associated with.
The GR performed very well in anything I put it through and the only pictures that did not turn out well were due to user error on my part. The GR is a fantastic little camera and one I can fully recommend to anyone looking for a really serious compact or if you just want the best backup camera you can get.
The GXR A12-M will still remain my main camera as nothing can touch some of the lenses I have for it and the character it gives but the GR is great for travelling light and for ultimate IQ it beats the somewhat older 12MP sensor in the GXR.
