|Trellick Tower. Now a Grade 2 listed building
One of the strange things about photographing this building was that the locals going in and out of it regarded me with some amusement. It was almost as if they were wondering why someone would take a picture of this hideous building? I was not alone. There were a couple of others with camera shooting away. None of them had a form of transportation as beautiful as a Brompton Folding bike however.
The Brompton really is great for this type of photography. I hadn't really got a clue where I was going but pointed the bike in the general direction and managed to find it after a few T Junctions and blind alleys. I certainly would have been unable to find it as easily by car. The Brompton also makes for a rather good impromptu tripod and my Ricoh found the stability it needed on top of a Brooks saddle.

Having exhausted Trellick Tower I headed off and found a gasworks. I am really pleased at the way this little Ricoh manages to get crisp shots which such a small sensor. So far I love it! Being so small and light but still having loads of manual controls it is not only easier to carry than a DSLR, it is much more fun to use.
