Harrogate is a beautiful old Spa Town filled with very nice, quite expensive treats for the senses.
Betty's is an institution:
And they have a to go service:
The parks are delightful:
And there are some fantastic cars on show
For value for money go for an X2 with the Olympus EVF - that combination must be 95% or more as good as the newer X (113). Actually I think the only non-cosmetic upgrade from the X2 to the X is the LCD screen resolution.
If you want the new camera you have to cough up for the new EVF.
Recent trip to the City of Light (despite recent events) with a theme of symmetry. I'm finding this remarkably difficult to master.

A question, not a criticism (it's only because I liked the image that I clicked it up to full size for further inspection); why when viewed full-size does almost every vertical line become a zig-zag?
Click on through full size and especially have a look a the picture frames in the back...
I'm just messing with you. The real difference is that Bamburg Castle is one of the most impressive castles in England and it is approximately 1000 years old (parts of it are only a couple of hundred) also it was built for defence. The USA has only been around for a fifth of that time...
I've found a new Leica T with 18-56 lens included discounted by about £800. Sounds like a bargain.
But there isn't even a Leica T section in this forum. Is it worth having or is the T just a fail of a system?
Recently visited the island of Crete. These are perhaps the nicest, most welcoming, most hospitable people in the world. And the island is beautiful too.

True - I did find it really hard to hold my camera at arms length, down by my thigh and shoot upwards just guessing. I'm delighted with the outcome though including that awesome 'finger to finger' between God and man.
Is the purpose to have a great holiday or to practice photography?
My advice (neither requested nor welcome); travel light and enjoy the wine.
By the way I've been all over that area from Cannes to San Remo - happy to oblige with tourist info especially in Antibes, Nice, Monaco and San Remo if...
No idea but me too (thinking of selling my other stuff to buy more Leica). Since I got my first Leica last Easter I've hardly touched my M4/3 kit. The Leica is just an absolute pleasure to own/ handle/ work with/ learn about.
Possibly I'll buy another brand's P&S in the future but I can't see...
