As it is well known that you don't have to wait for an event to enjoy the gardens, I popped in today for no reason other than to relax, enjoy the beauty and listen to the birdsong.
I left my usual hi-res camera at home and took with me one of those cheap digital jobbies that you can now pick up from a supermarket for around £20.
The auto exposure was erratic, the focal length was set in stone, the lens was wide angle only, the memory chip was 320meg, the screen bleached out at the drop of a hat (I could never quite make out what I was shooting), and the resolution was a distinctively average (for these days) 5 mega-pixels.
With no agenda to follow or event to cover, I took a few random photographs as and when the fancy took me. I didn't even care whether anything usable emerged. After all, I was just there to relax.
Anyway, here is a slide show of the results obtained. I'm not a great photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but it shows what spontaneous creative fun can be had with pocket-money equipment and a great subject to film. I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed filming it.
