Woke up to this dream world. Felt like a six year old again. If there had been snow when i was six. Which there wasn’t. Because it never snowed in England. But still!..
This is also the first time outside with my new, very expensive, very scary full-frame DSLR. Trying to put rampant fears of condensation and water damage aside i took it for a little spin. In the snow. Because when is there a better time to stop molly-coddling your camera than a snow storm?! Especially when it’s coming with me to the Arctic Circle next month. Time to break it in, i guess. Overall, i’m sure my fears are largely unfounded and probably a result of me intensively over-reading the manual; something which i’ve never done before and probably never will again due to my great impatience. But i really wanted to understand how this big hunk-o-lovin’ worked. I still haven’t come to grips with how to get the best from it. I feel like i’m not doing it justice. But practice. And reading. And getting over my Photoshop fear. And one day i’ll actually produce a photo that looks how i imagined 😉
There were so many pretty sunsets to be seen from our apartment windows in September. Don’t worry, i won’t post them all! But looking out at the on-going grey sky and constant rain of October makes me feel very *insert deflated noise here*. So its nice to look back and be reminded that there is beauty and happiness behind all that depressing mess 😉
From which i promptly dropped my lens cap…
That’s what i get for not snapping more than 6 photographs in June and then deciding to take a different camera for a spin than the usual. Disobedient equipment. Or butter fingers. Most likely the latter. Probably. Definitely.
