Notting Hill, Mothering Sunday and a few pics....

Dear Friends

Many thanks for your comments on my previous post. My sister, Kathleen, arrived safe and sound and is enjoying the sights around London. Today I am bringing you a spot of colour from Portobello Road in Notting Hill. I was lucky enough to receive a new point and shoot camera for Mothering Sunday (UK's Mother's Day) and took it out for a test run. I love the camera, it is light, easy to use and although I have a few things to learn I was happy with the overall images. It has a clever little screen that allows you to take photos 'undercover' which is very handy when you are out and about :) Details about the camera below....

It was all happening today. The sun was shining
and people were out to make the most of it.

A bit of Notting Hill humour along the way :)

If you are in the market for a new camera,
check out the Canon G12. It came highly recommended
and I am glad I took the advice. More photos taken 
at Hampton Court Palace here

  8. Mothering Day...as of today Mother's Day is now Mothering Day at my house!

    I have to confess my envy Jeanne of your new camera and your day in Nottingham Hill. I am adding it to my list of "must sees before I'm 65"

  21. You know, I brought my big Nikon to Texas with me -- but really, I'm sort of person (and photographer) who would rather have a small point and shoot. I would LOVE to have an 'undercover' option as I especially like to take pictures of people.
    Notting Hill is one of my favourite London haunts and your pictures capture it so well. It makes me miss England a bit (even though I'm enjoying visiting Texas).

    Very much appreciated your recent comments on my posts. I would like to see your Chinese bookshelf sometime.

    Where do you get your Pentel? I have looked all over town (Omaha) and have had no luck. I love Pilot's retractable fine tip, but thought I would give the Pentel a try after you mentioned you liked it.
    Thanks!

    Gentle hugs!
