Yesterday I enjoyed a walk in Coombe Wood with a friend. It's lovely to be able to use my repaired camera again - although unfortunately another problem has arisen which wasn't there before it was repaired. The batteries seem to continue to discharge themselves even when the camera is switched off - leaving me with a flat battery long before I'd expected it - in less than a day instead of a week or so. Very irritating - I will have to contact Canon again.

Some of the scented yellow azaleas are beginning to drop - each flower slips off and dangles from the thread like stigma.

Walk 2. THE "ACCIDENTAL" WALK.
This morning I hadn't actually intended to go to Coombe Wood. I planned to combine a walk with the search for something suitable to photograph for the Facebook 30 Day Photography Challenge that I'm taking part in. Today's topic is Branches but I was looking for something different - tree branches seemed a bit obvious. I wanted to photograph branches in the train or tram track - but after driving around and walking quite a distance I failed to find anywhere where I could get the sort of view I wanted, so I went back to the idea of photographing branches and headed for Coombe Wood again 0 there are plenty of branches there to choose from. In the end I decided on one of many photos I took of the Judas tree branches, covered in amazing blossom.
Of course I just had to take other photos while I was there.
Thank you very much for joining me.
