Spiky Things

Here’s another Lanzarote picture. I’m sure one of my clever readers will be able to tell me what this plant is.

It made me think a bit – when I used to carry an SLR1 around, I took pictures like this all the time: Point, fiddle, shoot, job done. It’s nowhere near as easy with an autofocus compact that doesn’t have a proper manual mode, as well as working out you want to do, you have to work out how to fool the camera into doing it.

Perhaps I ought to add “Some sort of manual mode” to the list of requirements for my next camera?

1 That’s a single-lens reflex camera. I’ve never carried a self-loading rifle around.
