I have been thinking about upgrading to a digital SLR camera for a while and came across a good deal so today I went up to Oxford Street (3 weeks before Christmas, too!) and bought this ...
Now I just have to understand the manual and get playing with it....
I couldn't bear to go to London without a camera, but knew it wasn't sensible or necessary to carry my film SLR, so took my little digital one I use for my craft stuff. This is Carnaby Street from one of the exits of Liberty...
I had to go to Liberty after seeing the first part of a Channel 4 TV series about the store - I love it, though can't afford to shop there!
Then I walked back along Oxford Street to look at Selfridges Christmas windows - this always used to be something we did with Mum and Dad as kids, it's been years since I went... don't you love those cute little trees (wouldn't they be useful to a crafter...)
all the windows were decorated with festive greenery and sparkly lights..
the windows all had different themes - love these penguins - and were promoting different merchandise available inside.
This cute train piled high with presents going round and round was a big hit with all the kids!
and the corner window - biscuits and cake!
I couldn't face going up to their Christmas shop on the 4th floor as by now my head was pounding so I came home... now to read the camera manual and see if I can make it work!
