This is the fourth, and final part, of the Springtime Strolls series of photos. On the whole, it’s been not a bad week for photos: sunshine abounded for a decent portion of the week (colours!), to be capped by wind and rain towards the end (monochrome!). So, to mark such a decent week, I’m posting photos which were only taken this week. Half were taken on my newly acquired Panasonic-Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens. First impressions of the lens have been excellent thus far. However, time will tell if it deserves the legendary “Leica Summilux” branding which adorns its front.

That’s all the wordy bit for this week. The remaining five photos in the post are below.
