The next day Friday 2nd was my mum's birthday - the big 6-0 this year! And she looks awesome for 60, I hope I am blesssed with her good genes! I went to Port Lincoln to pick up my Nan -she is nearly 93. While I was there I thought I would price a camera............mmmm............yep, I priced it! And bought it! LOL. I am now the very proud owner of a brand spanking new DSLR - Canon EOS 450D - got the twin lens kit. Have read the manual cover to cover and am now playing and experimenting - trying to use the manual settings. Already have a list of accessories that I want - least of all lens hoods and filters - a bit annoyed that lenshoods don't come standard. I also would like a Faster lens.............one day. So far I am very happy with it - love the DOF control. These aren't all taken with the newby. Can you guess which ones are?Got some more interesting and exciting news for you - but I'm going to leave that until another post! Haha, keep you all wondering! One way to get you to come back for a visit!
New Years Eve was a bit quiet - we went to the local pub - with about 50 others - it was rockin'! (insert rolling eyes here)! Anyway, by about 11 o'clock I'd had about 2 drinks and was ready to go home (yes......I know, must be getting old)and my brother decided to buy a bottle of Sambucca. I'm sure he did it just to get me, cos that was the end of my quiet night! Love the stuff! Ended up getting to bed about 4am. Woke up with a big headache (surprisingly! LOL) and had a busy day cos of the Sports Day every year at Arno Bay. Thank goodness I wasn't part of the committee this year, so only had to help out a little bit.
Anyway, here are some of the pics - I took over 100!! The joy of digital.................But don't panic, not posting that many here...............close tho!! LOL! I am happy with the way these turned out - no major editing - cropping and some adjustments to contrast and colour. Will do better next year with my NEW CAMERA!!!
The Sports Day was great - lots of people this year (bad year on the farm = people holidaying locally) and it is always a fun day. Weather was good altho a bit windy - nothing new there. Tyla had lots of fun - if you live anywhere in that area, I would recommend the day - it's great. Here's a link to the local government so u can check out the area.........
Thanks for dropping by - please leave me some love! xxx
