I have to admit to being head over heels in love with my new camera. It smells like cameras used to smell, it feels right in my hands and best of all I have taken one or two rocking photos. I had forgotten what it is like to zoom without waiting for a motor to do it for you – imagine that! I need to get a new neck strap pronto but otherwise happy days. After we dropped Milla off at play group this morning Monty and I went for a little walk. Want to join us?
Alliums outside play group.
Blossom on the path looked gorgeous but a bit weird photographed in focus. Cue my first venture in manual focus – handy that I was aiming for out of focus…
I will never get tired of dandelions.
The gate by the village church. Still not great at getting the horizon on my pictures straight. Quite annoying.
Leaning over the rails to take this picture of my feet gave me the willies – no other word for it.
I ventured out onto the private river bridge which is made of railway sleepers and looks both rickety and sturdy at the same time.
The corner of one of my ‘dream houses’ we could have a woodworm issue.
Monty entertaining himself. Definitely need to get my gloves out for some nettle foraging.
Could not believe my luck when we surprised this fellow. She hung around long enough for me to get a few good shots before heading for cover. There were herons on the river too which had me yearning for a telephoto lens already (nothing like wanting to run before you can walk).
Back home and our wall ‘weeds’ are a cheerful welcome.
