stop start stop start stop start. that was pretty much the weather all day long today, and then finally the drizzling nonsense stopped late afternoon, so being slightly cabin crazy (and hangover) we dashed out of the door as quick as quick can be. we headed straight up to the woods on sydenham hill for a spot of fresh air and adventure. the perfect excuse to try out that new camera of mine! yippeeee.
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.
