I’m back & I’ve missed you all!

Japanese Anenome

I’ve been away for ages, I’ve been working too much, I’ve been de-cluttering my house (a little) I’ve been doing some classes; learning how to use my camera a bit more & I’ve been enjoying this lovely sunshine we’ve been having!

But I’ve been taking hundreds of photos…. so I’ve a lot of catching up to do!

As a present to myself for all my clearing out (I’ve been using eBay and car-boot-sales as well as the bin!) I bought a new camera bag and a ‘close-up’ lens for my camera.



I want to buy a DSLR camera, but my Bridge camera is really very good & a friend of mine has lent me an old Cannon EOS 30D to play with and practice with before I commit some serious money!

In the meantime I am practising with my new close-up lens, and I am planning to spend the next few weeks revisiting my camera classes using the DSLR camera to see what I can manage with it!  I might post my attempts on here as a series ‘Photography 001′ (as opposed to the professional 101 series) Watch this space!!

    Great to have you back, I missed you. I love the Myrtle, I mean the flower this time and not your tortoise!

    Welcome back, Barbara. Beautiful photos. You have done a great job. I don’t know much about photography but your photos are crisp and clear and the contrast is perfect.
