Not so much a dead end as a No Exit road, as it was more or less in the middle of town.
I can hardly contain my excitement at having a new camera - despite the fact it terrifies me a little. The manual has 237 pages and I'm only up to P28. But I figured I can't do much harm in Auto mode and while not really knowing what I wanted to take photos of, took off after work and drove around looking for things to practise on. (Things on which to practise just sounds too poncy for someone learning to use a new camera!)
So it's not surprising that I ended up turning into a No Exit road, one I'd never entered before and discovered, at the end of it, a view over the Victoria Bridge and the covered artisans' market/entertainment area, with the masts of yachts moored in the Town Basin in the background. My prayers to Saint Veronica, the patron saint of photographers, must have been heard.
I got carried away and took a photo of a road. If I can remember how I got to where I was, I must return and try again with that shot when I have a better grasp of the camera's settings.
Don't rain on my parade and tell me that's a crappy shot. I'm quite happy with the greenery in the foreground!
