29/07/13 - new camera

mandatory Instagram photo of my camera, of course

So I loved using my partner's camera (a Canon EOS 1100D) so much I went and got my own...I used to take and edit a lot of photos before when I was going on two or three holidays a year, but since then the only photos I've taken on my PowerShot are selfies...
It's only a cheap (as far as DSLRs go) beginner's camera but it's so easy to use and I love it. Although I know there's a lot of room for improvement, I'm really quite proud of the photos I've taken on it so far! I'm so excited to take it to Zakynthos with me this week as there will be so much opportunity for me to practise!

Spent my day on my local pick-your-own farm with my family and my partner, making the most of strawberry season. It's the second time this month I've gone and bought produce from the farm and I'm definitely going to make a habit of it - fresh veggies taste so much better than supermarket produce! Also my partner's new DSLR turned up today and going to the farm was a good opportunity to try it out.

I'm going to try and regularly write/post photos on this blog and maybe post some more recipes on my vegan blog at some point. Having an online journal that I can share as well as my personal journal is something that I've wanted to do for a while but I've only really now got round to. I tend to spam my tumblr blog with lots of photos and text posts whenever I do something interesting, so why not just put it all into one blog post on here?
