What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was this ‘handsome bugger!

My brother… strutting his stuff with the band Pumpcar at the MFN nightclub in Derbyshire.

The Micro Four Thirds Panasonic Lumix GF1 was definitely not suited to shooting in low light and I think this was the only time I ever shot a gig with it. I loved the Macro-Elmarit 45mm lens though… the only Leica (ahem!) thing I’ve ever owned…

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Seven years ago it was this clump of Snowdrops (Galanthus) in our garden.

To get the camera level with the flowers I reversed the centre column of my tripod, composing the image on the GF1’s LCD screen (a spinal injury means that I can’t get down to ground level anymore…)

The Micro Four Thirds fitting Leica Macro-Elmarit 45mm lens is a beautiful piece of kit… I miss it.
