Taking The Camera For A Walk...

Sometime, way back when you had to thread film, develop negatives, print a contact sheet, adjust the enlarger, put paper in a chemical bath, dodge & burn to control the exposure and generally exist under an infrared lamp, for hours on end, I used to take lots of pictures. I loved it. 
For Christmas I was given a new camera. I took it for a country walk. 
I love it (I have a lot to learn, but I love it!), here are some of the first shots.
