First a tale of sadness and woe, a dear old friend has passed over to that great photo' shop in the sky. My loved and trusted Canon SX 210 IS gave up the ghost last Thursday. I had been struggling with the zoom on it for a while and eventually the little button that worked became disconnected from the thrumble gromit or whatever it connected to and so, no zoom. Much tooth sucking from the chap in Jessops (Other camera shops are available) about the chance of repair and so; I am now the proud possessor of a Canon SX 710 HS. If the old one was good this one is great. If I can ever translate the techno-babble of the on line manual it'll be amazing.
So here we are in Brindley Place opposite the revamped N.I.A. Now called the Barclaycard Arena.
You will have to bear with me, I have a new toy and I'm playing.
We move on tomorrow, heading for the North Stratford.
Watch this space...
