Just before the Vocal Booth I purchased a new camera. I took about 10 shots with it. It then never got used until I went to Switzerland last month, and I proceeded to drop it and break it. I was very angry. That camera is currently being repaired. As usual, as soon as I bought the last camera, two days later I saw an offer on a new, different camera on Amazon. Secretly I was glad the other one broke. Then by sheer coincidence the better camera appeared in a local store at the weekend and my lovely wife offered to buy it for me for Christmas. Touch ! Needless to say I didn’t wait until Xmas.
I just went to the beach to test out the new camera. It is ‘only’ a bridge camera, a lovely Nikon with a powerful 42x zoom but it reinforces the fact that I would love to take up photography as a serious hobby, and I will at some point.. learning little bits and pieces as I go. There is lots more to it than just pointing and shooting, although I do think I would capture some nice bits with the right camera and learning post production.
Here are some shots I took today.. just sharing to remind myself in the future. As you can see I was just fannying around but loved the massive zoom.. some of these photos are ok. None of them are treated (quite clearly !)
The Road to Valencia Marathon 2023
Join me as I take on the ultimate challenge – running my first Marathon in 7 years!
After a long break, I’m ready to push myself once again and take on 26 miles (42km). I have no idea why, lol.
