Loads more photography

Another Busy week and I'm so tired, this hectic social life is getting the better of me , hee hee, must be getting old(er). I'm really looking forward to a wee break in Kerry this week, my first holiday since I started the job in January. Bliss!

Yesterday Ber and I had a wonderful day. We started with our photography class with Peter of Living Images (thanks Peter). We learned everything about our camera settings, especially to do with indoor portrait photography. We learned loads of really useful tips which I can't wait to put into practice :-) and I now know the Lens I sooooo need, better start saving! I would really recommend this type of one to one (or two to one) class for anyone interested in learning about their camera.

After the class we met Louise in Ennis for lunch, we had scrummy food in The Town Hall, check it out if you are ever in the area. Afterwards we checked out the craft shop and then a little more retail therapy. Ennis has some amazing shops for clothes, handbags and jewellery :-)

One evening during the week, Ber and I headed to the weir in Annacotty to checkout slow shutter speed, trying to capture the silky feel of the water. Landscaape really isn't my thing but as an exercise I found it really useful, below is my fav from the evening.

This weeks theme for Scrap West is pets, check out the blog for some amazing works of art. We had 3 guest this week too, thank you ladies for submitting your LO's.

Finally, leaving with this photo of my sweetie girl whom I haven't seen in nearly 2 weeks. I've loved my free time, got loads done but I miss her so much and can't wait to hug and kiss her :-) No doubt she'll oblige me for about 2 minutes, hee hee. She has been in Kerry with her Dad enjoying Puck Fair, the both of them even went my parents cottage for tea during the week. I love the fact that my parents respect her Dad even though it didn't work out between us.

Right let the holiday begin :-)

Hi Eva, I'm back from hols and have finally gotten around to looking at your blogsite if that's the correct terminology. Very interesting. I must find out more about blogging. Thanks for your kind comments on the photography tuition and the link to my website. I will now likewise add a link to your blog on my links page. Here is a link to the precise wide aperture lens you were asking about
Apologies if your blogsite is not the proper forum for this information but I don't think I have an email address for you. Regards, Peter Gorman.
