Boston, in Lincolnshire is an interesting town to visit, the skyline is dominated by the imposing St. Botolph's Church tower, commonly known as "The Stump". The town has a small port which is accessed from the large coastal feature, "The Wash", the surrounding fens are drained into The Wash, the water levels being maintained by pumps.

For my travel / street photography I prefer a small "pocketable" camera, earlier this year I had the Sony a5100, but it fell from grace as I found it very hard to focus on close up subjects. I now have a Panasonic GF6, of course, neither of these cameras are equipped with a viewfinder, but for street work this is ideal as I can sit with the camera in my lap, snapping away without being noticed.
