Really peeved off! After all the news about professional cameras not being allowed in to the Olypics, I left my kit at home and set off equipped with only a P&S. In the end they have just banned tripods and monopods. Mind you the sport and the atmosphere waqs great.

Yep, I am in Beijing at the moment.

Taken with a P&S: I couldn't be bothered to drag all my SLR gear up here.

A drunk photographer on a humid night with a cold camera

Last night, I staggered back from the bars of Lang Kwai Fong, a little bit worse for wear. In my illogical state of mind I thought it would be clever to take a photo with the M8 on its highest ISO setting. I knew it would be noisy, but wanted to see how Noise Ninja could handle it.
Taking a camera from an air conditioned room outside, on a humid night, isn't the cleverest thing to do, but the misting on the lens created some nice effects.
