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.
