If I had realised half the things I have started in life would turn out the way they did or cost as much, I may not have started any of them.  Then again, I suppose that would make me a different person.

It’s not only the big things, it’s little ones too.  I started posting ‘Nature Lessons’ linking my thoughts with photographs as quotes for fun, I thought it was a nice idea and thought I’d give it a week or so and make a little collection.  I’m on day 43 now and realise I might have to continue for the rest of the year, maybe longer.  If I make it a year then it’s another 322 pictures and quotes I need to come up with, that’s a lot of thinking let alone walks in nature in the freezing cold!

So I have come to the realisation that I need a good camera, although my iPhone 6+ does take some nice snaps, I want to get some better ones, like night shots and distance.  I know nothing about cameras so I’m hoping this post might help generate some advice.  Oh and I don’t have a fortune to spend 😉

Last night I went down to the seafront, it was 150 years since the opening of the West Pier.  Anyone who follows my blog will know I love this place and never tire of photographing it.  It is beautiful and I think very powerful and last night as a celebration of 150 years the town was lighting it up.  I hoped to get some great snaps but unfortunately my iPhone  camera is not any good after dark (see below ;-)).

If I start something and set my mind to it I finish it, not all my ideas come into fruition, I have so many of them, but those I start become part of me.  Well that’s apart from lifestyles like the diets, but that’s because they don’t work, oh yes and the yoga 😉

Funny how things turn into habits and we find it hard to let them go.  Like coffee, wine and smoking, although I sort of finally nailed that one.  Then there are the relationships we probably knew were not good for us in the start, what’s that all about?  But then again if I hadn’t met my sons father I wouldn’t have such a wonderful son, so I needed to do that one too.

I’m now hooked on writing and I really enjoy adding photos to my work.  In fact some of the photos I take on my nature walks are inspiration for my words.

I have always liked to write but I’m totally absorbed by writing at the moment, on a good day I might even dare call myself a writer.  I like the fact that I can share messages about life, love and kindness on my blog and I’m overjoyed that some of you seem to like them.  I try to inspire through words and the photos help this process, so you see, I need your help with that camera.

  1. Is not it amazing how one thing leads to another, so maybe one day you’ll get yourself a big camera, though your pics are lovely as they are! Whatever you do, do not regret about the past. What is done is done, it’s history now.
    Oh, two cups of coffee taken regularly are good for you (apparently).

  2. I once had a great camera, alas it’s gone the way of the do do and since I havent been able to take photos for 20 years, I dont have any decent input about cameras or costs these days. For me it was about the telephoto lens with which I could take the same picture at different angles and depths. I wish you luck with finding something compact not too pricey and capable of presenting a multiple of opportunities to take pictures that inspire. You do that well, inspire. Your photos, your thoughts, your blogs, all heartfelt and or full of amusement. I enjoy most of them. Please continue as it would be a loss to all if you didn’t.

  3. I am glad to hear you are continuing the nature quotes…they are a bright spot in my day as I cannot get out and take pictures like I used to. I don’t know what camera would be right for you, but know we have a local camera shop where the staff is very informed and helpful with any questions… I would start at your local shop (not the big discount stores) and get the basics and then carry that knowledge when shopping for the best price. Good luck!
