Photographer's Note

Today I am digging into my before DRSL days. After many years with no great photographic interest or activity, the bug bit. This shot, taken on an HP point and click, in B&W, was the beginning of a journey resumed. I love this shot, the quality is poor and I wish I could re-shoot it but it was a turning point for me and a special moment.

I loved the strong sunlight and shadows in the interior of Angkor Wat and had been taking snaps of the play of light and shade. Turned a corner and saw this man sweeping. Perfect moment!

Now I'm looking for advice. I would like to invest in a good quality compact camera. Too many photo opportunities are lost because of the full frame I have to lug about. I would like something for street scenes and those situations where speed and decisiveness are essential. Can anyone recommend something with a good sensor, very good lens quality (can be a fixed zoom or interchangeable lenses) , the ability to shoot in RAW and with the ability to set shutter speed, aperture, full manual or auto. I love my Nikon but I want something to carry in my handbag or pocket!
