Wordless Wednesday 17/11/21 – New lens testing

Lens: new Tamron 18-200. Camera: new old Nikon D-5000. Location: home and Southern Tuscany around it. Lesson: don’t wield that sun visor wildly. 😀

PPAC: San Gimignano

After eight years in Tuscany maybe it’s time to visit San Gimignano, I said to myself, packed uncle and bestia on Thursday and off we went, after a lovely stroll by the Elsa river. As everything in Italy it was full of art and surprisingly full of people. San Gimignano, two hours NW from me,Continue reading “PPAC: San Gimignano”

Lens-Artists PC: Wide world

Going wide? Two weeks ago I wouldn’t even know what you mean. Before (since 2015): The Nikon Coolpix L830 point-and-shoot has a 34x Nikkor optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-765mm.
