Most of us are guilty (to some extent) of thinking that the latest ‘kit’ will make all the difference to our photos. But deep down we know that isn’t true. I took some time a year ago to walk round Westminster with my old Panasonic/Lumix FZ50 bridge camera. Very small sensor and not much use shooting colour above 400ISO. However, I like it in mono, and then it’s not bad up to 800 ISO. Lots of shutter lag, and pretty slow autofocus – but that’s part of the challenge.
The PM of India was visiting 10 Downing Street so the Sikhs (who don’t like him) were holding a demonstration. I like this shot for the beards. I was pretty close, using the wide end of the zoom, but they were too busy to notice me.
