Panasonic Lumix TZ31 (hasn't made this Princess happy)

Last week I bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ 31 .
For JPEG it's impressive but when it comes to video it lacks a great deal especially at night when using the zoom for films of the moon and clouds.
The 20x optical zoom blurs and 'swims' resulting in videos which have a 'drunken' appearance.
This camera may well be defect and yes, it's being returned.******
The collage is made up of some  decent TZ31 JPEG.
Top L) the tip of the Funkturm  Top R) same place at night
Bottom L) *strawberry icecream coated in rucola. Middle ) moon and clouds
Bottom R ) the Siegeßäule
* Movenpick Ice are the creators of the strawberry and rucola desert .
It is best described as sensational .

The camera has not been returned. because  the 'Pansonic Princess has fallen in love with it.    Errors have been sorted .

M -Words On Saturday 27th April

Medical,  MRT,   movement,   magical, magnetic, Martin Gropius Haus, mobility, music,  masonry. These are a few of the words that made my Saturday an M Day.
Getting around is still rather difficult in that it is a slow process and still painful but oh how the transport system(s) of Berlin help .It's possible to criss cross the city using any combination of bus, underground lines and sbahns .Even easier, is the planning system which tells you exactly how far you will have to walk and the exact time it will take . Unlike a certain airline they don't blow trumpets they just do it with staff and facilities that are first class.The exhibitions at the Martin Gropius Bau Haus are well worth a visit .
As with all things German,there is a rather splendid restaurant.

'S' words and An Upside Down Sunday

The prescription for today read :-
Fresh air and sun 
One bacon sarnie ,
One ice cream 'shared' ,
An hour flat out in the sun , 
An hour's gentle swimming .
Swedish recipe cooked to perfection 
Eaten under what else but the early night sky
With the moon as ever shining down .
Photography no matter what !

Ms V Loses Her Culinary Virginity !

Unbelievable and proof that one should never say never . Now if you are awaiting a 'steamy' posting , sorry you've read it wrong. Though fair to say it concerns something hot.  Berlin is the city of Currywurst. This is sausage, grilled, chopped, covered in curry, various other spices, tomato sauce and served with chips . So why my long wait ?
Coming from Britain where Indian food is superb I couldn't face the idea of sausage with curry powder . Very none gourmet . Yet today on arriving at Friedrichsfelder  Ost there was  the van ( see collage ) and my rather empty stomach decided 26 years was long enough to wait .The order cost a mere 3€  and as you see was enjoyed .

Four Words To Make You Think .

On Saturday I went shopping and the goods were given to me in a bag which carried this message :-
So what, I wonder would your 'desire' be ?  Mine was and still is, easy to answer. Simply 'myself '.
The following day came three words Spring Has Sprung but since from  'out of nowhere' it merited a film . Enjoy.

Art and Ice Cream

Today has been glorious and tables at Ice Cafe Mauritius were full. I still found a place for my coffee and then noticed who did the chalk board work .. Life has been so restricted since March 7th and if nothing else it's enabled me to note daily things I'd previously missed .
