Going wide to the opera

Trish and I have hired a Fuji 14 f2.8 prime lens. Most pics are with that, those that aren't should be obvious!

Experimenting in Liverpool Street station.

whoops! Converging veritcals!

Lots of tea in here!

Not been used in a while!

When they said here are Dick & Dom we left!

We were off to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden to see Giacomo Puccini's La Rondine. Ooh get him...... This is one of his less well known operas but Ermonela Jaho was superb in the title role of Magda really wringing the last bit of emotion out of it. The sets were beautiful as well.

Oh it was very hot!
