Lately...

20 May 2013

























I haven't been using my big camera as much lately and have been a bit lazy with taking it out and about with me. Ever since I got a decent camera phone I have been using that quite a bit instead, I really must try and get into the habit of using it more again! Anyhow these are some I have actually taken lately, on adventures with the boy to the local parks and the beach - a couple of beautiful sunny days and a cloudy wet one too!

    1. Aw thank you so much, its a pretty basic model but fine for me - Im not great with the technical stuff! I would love a different lens one day to be able to take better close ups. xx

  5. Gorgeous blossom but my favourite is your boy at the top Gorgeous blossom but my favourite is your boy at the top of the slide in black & white, looks so cheeky and full of adventure. I have been using my camera phone more and more recently too, not even an I phone but I love what it can do. Also I am a bit fed up carrying my. Huge camera around. Xx

    1. Thank you. Yes they're pretty good really and so easy to make them look better with a filter on there! Its nice to just grab my little bag too, instead of my bigger camera bag. xx

  10. Your photos are brilliant - love the one of the dandelion head with raindrops. Do you use Photoshop at all? On my Photography Course the lesson last week and tomorrow are about it and I thought if you did whether you could say whether it is easy to use once you get the hang of it as I'm loathe to spend money on something that's not going to be used.

    1. Thanks June. No I have never used Photoshop before, except for a few lessons when I was back at college and I must say I didn't really get it! Its something I would like to have another go at though. If I do need to edit a photo at all, like lighten or straighten I use Pixlr which is free and really simple to use. xx
