Cranfield B737 by tammyins
Cranfield B737
This beauty was delivered to Cranfield a couple of months ago.  It as donated by BA to the university to be used for training and research.  When interviewed by local radio, the Captain was asked how long the flight from LHR took.  He said that they'd followed the M25 motorway, so it had taken longer than usual :D   For those not in the UK, the M25 is known as the country's car park.  It's an orbital motorway that goes all the way around London.  When it was being built, those of us living in London thought it would give us a whole new lease on life - we'd be able to travel from A to B much more quickly.  How wrong we were!

Evening All!   I'M BACK!  Well, sort of.

I was having such awful trouble getting any decent photographs that I'd all but given up taking them.  Nothing I did worked.  Had the camera serviced and the sensor cleaned.  Had the 300 mm lens serviced/repaired (at great cost) and still got crappy photographs.     I'm not a 'good' photographer, by any stretch of the imagination.  I've been told I have a god eye, but I really need to learn to get what I 'see' into an image.   When my Canon 350D threw another Error 99 code at me, I darned near threw the thing into a lake and I was on the verge of taking up knitting as a hobby instead.   However, my son took the camera from me and messed around with it for a while and told me he thought the camera was at fault - not me.   My husband had offered to buy me a new camera when we were in Poland last year but I'd refused - we had better things on which to spend the money but he obviously realised I was disappointed.  We were back in Poland this week to visit my daughter and her partner and our little grandson (born last June) and the family wanted to pop into a supermarket.  As Wiktor (my grandson) was quite happy in his car seat, I offered to stay in the car with him while the others went shopping.  SURPRISE!!  When they came out, my husband hadn't actually gone into the supermarket - he'd gone into the shop next door and I'm now the proud owner of a Canon 600D.  Still an entry level camera, but that's just perfect for me.  Having not taken any photos seriously for a while, I've forgotten a lot of what I'd learned to I'm starting again from scratch - and SO looking forward to it, too, so expect to be bored to death by images from me soon :)  I'm already happy with those I've taken.  They're so much sharper and much more what I expect.

Hope everyone is well and doing what they do best - getting great images :)

I'm old, and getting older by the minute but I hope that age brings wisdom, especially now that I'm a grandmother! Little Wiktor was born last year (2013) and is rapidly becoming a regular bruiser :D

I mostly work at Addington Manor Equestrian Centre in Buckinghamshire now, as their Emergency Nurse Practitioner - picking up the pieces of broken riders. I don't work at the motox track any more and I thought I'd miss it but I don't. I DO miss the riders and some of the staff but most of them had been fired anyway so the place just wasn't the same any more :(

I have a sense of humour that's been described as 'quirky' and there's nothing I love more than a good laugh.
