Sidewalks in Dire Conditions


One of the extreme hazards that I experience when walking and making pictures in Hanover is that of tripping and falling.  I like to walk and look all around me for scenes to photograph.  While first doing this, I had a tendency to not look where I stepped.  After a few close calls, I learned to watch where I step and then stop to look around.

In addition to hurting myself, I could easily ruin a good camera and lens.  There have been times that I considered, and tried, just using my very tough and not so expensive Olympus TG-4 camera.  I may try that again occasionally since it is more discreet and easier to carry in a pocket and I can still make “some” good images with it.
