Out and about trying ‘one handed photography’.

5 weeks down since my tendon operation and I’m starting to use my left hand to take some photos – not easy as all cameras are right-handed.
I accompanied two friends on a quick visit to Weardale, armed with a small bridge camera,  to try out my ‘one handed’ technique on a grey damp day.Stanhope, Co.
