It was the first of three Sunday concerts in 4 weeks today!
Due to engineering works I had to go to Loughton tube station as we got out of the car I heard a bird I recognised. A Ring-Necked Parakeet which promptly flew over my head. I have never seen them over here before!
So to Hyde Park and some familiar views...
The sun was glorious!!
It was remembrance Sunday so lots of people about.
The Canada Memorial. Emotional for Trish...
I do miss a zoom on my Panny (alhough I love the 20 f1.7). The problem is that the telephoto options are two big. I am sort of tempted by the Nikon V1. The tele zoom is very compact.... must resist must resist!!
The concert was once again at Wigmore Hall with the Parker Quartet playing
Haydn - String Quartet in C Op. 74 No. 1
Debussy - Sting Quartet in G minor Op. 10
The Haydn was pleasant but I didn't feel the quartet quite achieved the same emotional involvement as the Heath Quaret had. The Debussy was better (especially in the opening and closing movements).
A good concert but not an outstanding one. Still a pleasant hour enjoyed by all.
A quick trip into John Lewis to look at cameras :) must resist must resist!!
And I will not laugh to much at the expression on Tricia's face when a young lady offered her her seat..... ROTFLMAO!!!!
