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.
