I have finally been brave enough to start using our new camera. That sounds like a strange thing to say. But I am not a photo person. I don’t like having my picture taken and I don’t like intruding on others to take their picture either. So this is quite a challenge for me! I think I might develop a passion for landscapes…. 🙂
Anyway, I’m trying to get over the fear of taking the camera with me. My newest niece Penny is the perfect excuse for this so I might end up with a LOT of pictures up here. So my first offerings for this challenge are these three. The first two are my attempt at “arty” shots of the dogs. (I have a couple of action pictures but haven’t uploaded them yet- I will do so at some point). These were taken in colour but look better in black and white. Actually getting Malcolm to stand still was a mission on its own, without trying to get him to look at me too! The third is a picture of Penny at two days old. She is absolutely tiny, which you can’t really get from the picture, but she is. This was one of the few I took that didn’t have her squinting at the flash!
I hope that by posting these as I go along there will be some improvement in the quality of my photos. We shall see…..
