I got a new camera for Christmas and am loving it.
I thought it would make me blog more, inspire me to write but of course life is getting in the way. Life is a little like that don't you find?
It's a Lumix DMC-FZ40 - the new version of our old camera. The zoom broke on the last one - probably through overuse as I'm always sneakily taking pictures of my children so that they don't give me ridiculous camera ready grins.
I spent the whole of last summer 'manually zooming' - walking towards the subject. Most tedious.
The new camera has a million new features I haven't quite deciphered and probably never will but I'm delighting in its 'zoomability' and the weight of it in my hand. Like Goldilocks and those pesky chairs some cameras just feel right. *
I should add (before he does) that the husband took this photo with my new camera.
What's his is mine, right?
*Any professional photographer who had stumbled across this blog has just spilt their short black in disgust.
**I'm time poor. This picture was ready and he owes me a lifetime of home cooked dinners.
