A disaster occurred after the Dickens festival yesterday, I dropped my camera! I have resorted to plan B for the time being while I get it repaired or replaced. Plan B was to borrow my daughters camera, I tested my lens and it seemed ok so I attached it to her older Nikon and off I went. Unfortunately whilst the lens managed for the most part it did seem to have a problem with the shutter, I soldiered on despite this.
I arrived early and I think this helped me feel more in control, again I found a moving crowd unpredictable but at least I was able to stand back from the crowd. As it was a fun run in a park there were no different vantage points but I did visit several parts of the course. I think some of the images are useable despite my problems, fingers crossed I get my camera sorted for next Saturdays Santa Con.
