Well HELLLLLOOOOO EVRYBODY, wow long time since I've been on here so sorry about that, it's been a busy few months settling in our 2 little ones, lots of visits from various professional parties etc so photography really really has taken a back step. So what made me feel good over the last few weeks not so much today, we sent our application to the court we're just waiting for a date so looking forward to being back soon, once court etc is done and dusted (that could take up to 3 months though) and they officially become ours
At work we have a wonderful thing to post ideas on (think of a blog/forum type site) and I posted an idea in September last year, well lo & behold my idea was picked up, implemented and I was then put forward to win a prize of £250.00, £500.00 or £1000.00 vouchers of my choice (amazon, John Lewis, M&S or some holiday ones)...Well a gala evening at the Honourable Artillery Company near Finsbury Square in London where I was wining and dining with the most senior executives in the company and I won the gold prize of the £1000.00.
So as it is not coming out of the "household" budget Mrs Keith has agreed I can get a new camera with my prize
So I have decided I am going for the Olympus OM D EM10 twin lens kit mainly because as much as I love my Sony A350 dslr it's a hell of a lot of gear to lug around if we decide to take the girls out up to London or even to the park, so the Olympus it is (didn't like the feel of the Panasonics in my hand) So new camera coming my way once I get the vouchers which hopefully will be soon, hoping I can sneak in the F1.8 45mm lens as well, and my dad has some old OM fit lenses which he will give me (I can get an adaptor from SRB for about £12.00)...So hopefully I will be a little bit more of a frequent visitor again and can maybe even upload some shots straight from camera to here (if I can work out how to resize them in camera lol)..just need to wait for that court date and then hopefully I can restart my hobby because I sure have been missing it.
