First month with the Ricoh GR

Recently, I posted about my new camera. Well, it's been almost exactly one month since I got it (scratch that, this post has been sitting in the "draft" folder for a while), and I thought I'd share some images. Unfortunately, I really haven't had a tonne of time to get out and shoot, but the GR makes it easy to always have that camera with me.

The most surprising thing about the GR thus far is how much I like the in-camera colours and effects. I have really begun to embrace the "instant" in my moniker; shooting raw only, but "developing" the image right in the camera with the built-in raw processor and using the resulting JPEG almost all the time, without further editing.

Long story short, I love this camera. Here are some of the first few snaps, and hopefully I can produce some more soon.
