I have decided that I very much dislike the side effects of these blood pressure tablets and so I am going to have to do my very best to manage blood pressure with diet and exercise if at all possible. It certainly can't hurt to try anyway. Now that I am no longer a student, my routine seems to involve a lot of sedentary desk-sitting with a burst of activity at the weekend which actually overstretches my capabilities and leaves me feeling exhausted for three days afterwards so I'm now aiming to walk *somewhere* on a daily basis for about half an hour without overdoing things but also getting a daily burst of exercise. I'm likely to give this up if I don't have some other purpose in mind so this is also going to serve as an opportunity to document areas of the town where I live that perhaps I wouldn't otherwise bother to investigate. These were taken today in East King Street, Helensburgh with a Nikon D3000 that my neighbour has just bought from ebay and wanted me to check out for him. He was wanting reassurance that he hadn't made a terrible purchase and for me to set up the date/time etc on it. I have to say I'm not overly familiar with Nikons and I didn't much enjoy not having the same access to controls that I have on my 5D MkIII but hey, it's a walk, with a camera and it wasn't chucking it down. He told me he'd never shoot RAW so these are jpegs which was frustrating because the lens has produced quite a lot of CA and trying to edit that out hasn't been entirely successful. However, if nothing else they may serve as markers of things I want to go back to later. I will keep adding to this thread as my walks progress - all the duds and any decent shots too. Maybe I'll do something with them later, or maybe not.
