It rained today. In the afternoon I got rather wet while riding the bicycle. An electric fatbike passed me, going over 40 km/h, which I think was rather high speed on a narrow path, especially as there was no sound to warn of his approach from behind.

I have take a couple of thousand photographs with the new LX100 camera. The new LX100 feels different than the old LX100, which was worn out. Even the shutter sound is a bit different, not so sleepy. The controls work flawlessly, which feels a bit strange as I had got used to non-responsiveness and other quirks.
It is great to have a camera without a problem of having lots of dust inside the lens. However, I have still some photographs taken with the old LX100 waiting for processing, blemished with dust spots.

This week has been great for commuting by bicycle. There are plenty of others riding the bicycle, to such a degree that there are queues in some places. But after September it will probably get much less busy on the bicycle routes.
