Rambling with Ricoh in May (1)

On the cusp of the month the Ricoh CX3 took its final shots. Spain proved to be a ramble too far; having become more temperamental  and then taking a tumble, my pocket sized point-and-shoot is seemingly broken beyond affordable repair.

Suffolk 2010 was Ricoh’s first outing* and the botanical gardens at Cap Riog on the Costa Brava, its last. With this camera I forayed into photography and will continue on with my bulkier Lumix G6.

And so with the last of its images, the next two posts are dedicated to the Ricoh CX3 – first in colour followed by the more sombre black and white… click for closer views

Only mad dogs and English photographers go out in the mediterranean midday sun but even so the camera handled the hot reds rather beautfully

Cap Roig is garden of contradictions in contrast, not least perhaps because it is the creation of Colonel Woevodsky, a Russian and the renowned English aristocrat Dorothy Webster**


but to the last, I loved how well the Ricoh could capture the simplicity of flowers in macrofinale of ricoh cx3 - Spanish dandelion macro

Next time…Rambling with Ricoh in monochrome. Meanwhile even on this somewhat sad note, wishing everyone a Happy Friday with Flowers
