All the photos that appear on this blog were only taken by my mobile phone camera. While this is fine for close up photos its not so good for views and more long distant shots. I therefore felt the urge to go and splash yet more cash on a new digital camera a few days ago. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9EB to be precise for all those otaku (geeks). Until now the thing hasn’t left its box as I have been busy working every day this week and too lazy to contemplate having to read the instructions or work it out for myself.
Anyway assuming I have got my ar*e into gear and worked out how to use it Tokyo Fox will now (hopefully) be displaying some more quality photographs. Obviously I can take photos with it anytime and publish them on here rapidly but my first time to really use it I guess will be when I go away on holiday next Friday as then is the start of my 10 days ‘Golden Week’ holiday.
This is four national holidays in just over a week plus two weekends and also a time when many companies shut up shop for the non-holiday days in-between this period. It is also a ridiculously expensive time to go away but most of us are left with no choice as to when we take vacation.
I will exclusively reveal where I am going later in the week just to build up the suspense for the one man and his dog that read this drivel. To give a hint my holiday will consist of 5 days, 4 nights, 3 islands, 2 people and 1 camera.
