I am so in love with my new camera!
I finally tracked down my manual after it decided it wanted to go play a game of hide and seek !!
It was hiding in the car! Norty manual!
I had a little play with my tripod and camera today in between phone calls to the DVLA - (we need to change our driving licenses) and the Passport Agency ( the silly girl in our local travel agents spewed out a load of old tripe saying I needed to send off for a new passport as mine expires in August and as it isn't a digi one I wouldn't be allowed into the US - well she was wrong - the very kind man from the US Embassy assured me I'm OK and can fly - phew! )
The prompt from today's 365 challenge is based on colour and made what was a dark and dreary emotional day for me a little more fun.
I followed some top tips which I was given by Anam a while back on taking self portraits and am pretty pleased with the piccies I took....whilst they are no where near as good as they could be I am at least trying!
I really need to get the hang of editing - which is one of my goals for 2008!
My piccie for today is here if you want to see it.
Dressed in black because I went to deliver a very special lady a very special bouquet of flowers and spent some time chatting to her.....just wish she could have answered me back. Miss you lots Muffin.x.x.x.x
Update on my nephew for those who have emailed and asked - thank you by the way , its nice to know you have kept him in your thoughts and prayers - he is doing really really well - he is home and is on the road to recovery.
I have piccies of him but they are not so nice to share - so I'll leave you with this piccie which was taken just a couple of weeks before that horrid horrid day.
I am ever hopeful, as is my Sis and family, that lil Will is young enough that his face will sorta grow into the scarring and it will fade in time.
I'm off to finish a layout and then an early night is needed.....another of my 2008 goals - no more burning the midnight oil!
