Hall of Famer
These kiddies parks can be lovely places to sit down in solitude, maybe have a bit of breakfast on one of the many benches and listen to the birds chirp (so long as you get there nice and early long before the kids, mums and dads arrive).

I haven't felt inclined to leave my bedroom today. Outside is uninviting - cold, windy and unappealing. The current stay at home order allows me to go out to exercise, and probably I should, but for today I'm content to just sit still. I'm wrapped up in my blanket enjoying the Accidentally Wes Anderson book that I got for Christmas with Tintin. I think if he could speak he would tell me to try this photo again so he's more in focus but I think I might just go run a bath instead. :)

I was hoping you would do a few of these.

I know what you mean. None of my current cameras have a flip out screen so I know and accept that gymnastics are part of the deal.
The problem is that adjusting focus when using the screen is so tedious with this setup that I usually fall back on the EVF when shooting close-up ... The GX9 *has* the tilt screen, but it was impossible to keep things in focus when holding the camera out in front of me, let alone framing. But it came out okay - and somehow, it was more rewarding.

Taking this image necessitated some major gymnastics on my part - which in turn influenced my pick for today ...

I got so used to the FA screen on the X-S10 that I notice how often I struggle with the X-100V and it’s merely flippy screen. I have become addicted to taking shots from very different angles and perspectives

The variable angle screen is so much more useful than a tilty one. And much much more than a standard screen. I’ve had to forego a number of ground level shots because gymnastics are beyond me... that is one shortcoming of the GR.. and is why under normal circumstances I reach for the FZ1000 or P610... the only cameras I have with those screens.
