A few pics and an update on camera.

Good morning everyone, I hope all is as well as it can be in your world...hugs
Well I didn't get my camera back so I went out and spent my craft kitty + on a new one. That means no craft shopping for a while! I miss my baby Nikon but methinks I shall do okay with the new Fuji Finepix T500 once I get used to the feel of it. Got to play around with the settings until I hit on the right ones for me. 
In the meantime I went back to Trent Lock yesterday with my big Nikon to take pics that I had lost with my little camera! This is just a few of them. Get yourself a cuppa and settle down cuz it's very picture heavy :o)

 This old dovecote was there when I was a child, way back in the mists of time!

As you can see, I converted a few to grey scale 

No, that's not a ginormous swan, it is a rowing boat LOL.

This is the pub where I left my camera but don't let that put you off if you ever visit Trent Lock, I has a lovely meal there.

I love the reflections and just look at that blue sky, who needs to go to the Mediterranean :o)
