Step by step, I am finding its tricks.
The catch with many new cameras is that a lot of their functions are accessible only of you press, twist or hold an improbable combination of buttons at once, and they are rarely intuitive in the way they are laid out. But, as I said, I am becoming familiar with the tricks. Yesterday’s venue was Lyall Bay where there was still a significant surf after some ugly weather in the preceding days.
Lyall Bay will never be one of the great surf spots of the world, and most of the time, its waves are mere ripples in the eyes of genuinely competitive surfers. As I understand it, however, it is a good place to learn, and it has its share of regular visitors who would rather be on a board than at a desk. Its riders are young, old, male, female, but whoever they are they seem to have fun.
Back at home, our neighbors have planted a rather vicious plant with a beautiful spike of flowers. Regrettably its leaves are also spiky and I would not wish to make contact unexpectedly.
That’s all for now.
