as we entered the last week of the summer holidays, i was finally bullied, yes bullied (you know who you are) into buying an actual proper camera. it was scary stuff you know. everything so far has just been snapped on my iPhone. i feel comfortable with it and it’s with me everywhere i go. to buy a camera was quite a big deal for me, and then what to buy?! after weeks of umming and ahhing i decided on a compact system camera. much much more than a point and shoot but not as bulky as a dslr. anything too big and i feared i would spend a massive amount of money for something i simply wouldn’t carry around, so it had to be neat and fit in my bag. so that was that, the perfect camera for me. but now what? a grown up proper camera, what on earth do i do now? best way to learn? i was told the same thing by several people, to charge it up and go on an adventure. so that’s what we did.
on thursday we packed up our bags and headed to the coast. a coast where i spent a lot of time when i was a child. east sussex. we plumped for camber and spent the day on the beach, in glorious sunshine. we had a marvellous day, so much so that on saturday we came back but this time with daddy. here’s a few of my very first shots on my grown up camera. i have a lot to learn.
