Returning to the blogosphere.
As my sharp eyed readers may have noticed (thanks for the prod RH 😉 ), there’s been a rather lengthy hiatus in my blog. In fact, I rather lost my blogging mojo.
First off, my camera is up the spout. My Panasonic Lumix isn’t the greatest camera and certainly can’t match a DSLR, but it’s good at macro and it did have the advantage of being easy to whip out and snap a quick shot with. Unfortunately, having developed the exceptionally annoying habit of starting to record video every time I attempt to zoom in or out, it’s now a massive pain in the arse to use. It also doesn’t seem to focus as well as it used to and has marks on the lense that I can’t open the camera body to remove. Bloody frustrating, frankly. So most of the enjoyment has leached out of photography for me over the past few months. Also, I’d like to learn and develop my photography skills more, but I’ve reached a wall of what I’m able to do, photography wise, with a compact. So short of a DSLR magically appearing on my desk (feel free to ask for my address if you have a spare one hanging around 😀 ), I’ve let it all slide.
It’s also been a busy few months and I haven’t had the time for blogging, or for keeping up with others’ blogs either. I reckon it’s time to make space for that again though, so I’m going to make a concerted effort to get back into it. Also, I haven’t heard from one of my most regular commenters, Charles, for months, and I’m wondering how things are in The Netherlands! 😉
Here’s a misty sunset over Catteshall Lock and the Lammas Lands in Godalming to get me started again.
