This evening I’m off to see The Commitments at the Palace Theatre with one of my oldest and dearest friends.  It is a belated birthday present and, although I’m really looking forward to it, I can’t help but wish it wasn’t on a Sunday evening. I don’t know about you but I always like to end my weekends at home.  From 7pm I want to be sitting in front of the TV or computer with a glass of wine or rum (7 anos Havana Club brought back recently from a trip to Cuba) just chilling and preparing the brain for work on Monday. 

Today it’s even more so as I can’t keep my hands off my new camera.  Currently I’m struggling to get the exposure compensation right and must have taken 100 photos of The Bunnster in my efforts to conquer the big EC. 

Tomorrow’s challenge is Live View Shooting and Manual Exposure and Focus.


New Camera, New Start

It has been known for me to earn a few pennies from taking pictures. Yesterday my partner, The Bunnster, gave me an late birthday, early Christmas present.  It is an EOS 6D and I used it to take a picture of this plant that was also given to me for my birthday.
