More from me and the RICOH GR...

All these shots were taken with the 'snap' focus feature and it was a pure joy to be photographing these moments in a lightning quick fashion, without any need to focus...
It certainly saves on battery power too. I found that the first time in using the DB-65 battery in this camera, it ran down quick but after re-charging for the third time round it did improve capacity by about 25%. These Li-ion batteries do have memories...
I now have two batteries I take with me onto the street. To conserve power I turn off the LCD and power button lamp and compose through the GV-1 viewfinder which is very useful in this respect...

Funnily enough, I was just wondering a little earlier how you were getting on with your GR. I can see you are getting on very well with it!

Nice set of images and they are spot on "you" - you've found your style and the pictures just get better and better.
Best regards, John

Soon Chris, I'm still gathering images and thoughts. Don't want to digress from these images though. I've looked at them again and as well as the black and white the colour ones are also superb.

I love the design and punch of "Decorated".
Best regards, John

Brilliant, my favourite is 'Strapping' - like the stripes worn by the performer and onlooker.

"What a lovely set..." You certainly have a photographic eye. Whitehall was my particular favourite. But that in no way. puts any lesser praise on the rest. These images are really showing off the prowess of this camera. Very well done.

John, Pentax' and Stuart, thanks for your comments...

John, it had been said online that the GR has a slight problem with it's rendition of reds but I haven't seen any problems in my RAW files and so the reds in these shots are pretty accurate from what I can remember...Anyway, this camera renders colours accurately and nicely I feel.

Nice set Paul. Aren't the strap rungs going to scratch you camera?

Algi, the metal rings on my strap pretty much always clear the camera and don't get a chance to scuff any of it. Thanks...

Alan, thanks a lot.

Very good observational photography. Some clever juxtaposition. Bark and smile is a piece of lightning quick thinking (or luck). I always enjoy your images.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Thank you, guys.

I had to make my way over to Printspace on Kingsland Rd. in east London yesterday afternoon to pick up my order for a Giclee print (‘Banyan Tree & Idol’). I was happy that I took my GR along for the ride too, it never leaves my side really…and so I snapped this.
London has had such warm weather these past two weeks and the city is in a heatwave, and so deckchairs line the pavement on various streets…It’s great!

No's 4 & 6 are great images. The timing of those foot steps in #4(intended or not) is excellent. Even the doges ((hind) left foot is in sinc.

Well captured images with more going on than first glance tells.
