You probably know how it is, setting out with good intentions, but then life gets in the way and bingo! years pass by in the blink of an eye.
I have no excuses - lots of things have happened, too many to list here, and you would only start yawning anyway. Suffice to say I am looking to revitalize things, starting with my indolence.
One of the main things to have changed (but not completely) is that I am doing more digital photography - eek! - having invested some of my kids inheritance on a full frame camera (Canon 5Ds) and a couple of lenses to suit. Having done the dead, I also finally did what I had been wanting to do for years, convert a camera to Infra Red. Well, I didn't, the experts at ACS did. And while I had been expecting to convert my old Canon 10D when I bought a second-hand 40D, then planned to convert the 40D when I got the 5Ds, I eventually decided that I had got so used to full frame that anything else was going to be 2nd class (yuk!), so bought a 5D Mk.III from a well-known internet auction site (called eBay) and had that converted. More kids inheritance gone. By the by, I heard on the radio today someone say they were going on holiday to ski. Turned out it wasn't winter sports but Spending Kids Inheritance. Nice one.
I'm really enjoying using these cameras, how good are they these days! Also I'm using my iPhone camera regularly when out and about, and using the Snapseed app for post-processing images.
However, dear reader don't fret, because I still enjoy going out with the big 6x17 panoramic, so the website title remains.
Proof in the form of photographic updates to follow, but meantime I'm happy to be back!
