First day of summer

So last week saw the first bank holiday weekend of the year, and with it came glorious weather. As is customary in Britain, I headed into the garden with a disposable BBQ, meat and beer. Oh, and my camera. And my dog.

This was a great opportunity to have my first real play-around with my X20. The hound proved a trusting model to start - albeit bribed with a chew - before testing out the macro mode on a curious Ladybird.

Still amazed how bright and colourful this little camera is - using a compact camera in a similar way to an SLR is still quite alien to me, but I'm absolutely loving getting used to it.
