My wife ‘enjoyed’ a birthday recently. It was a “special” one. I’m too much of a gent to say the number, naturally, but there’s five sapphires between the diamonds..

I was thirlled to get a ring with blue ‘stones’ (Lorna has blue eyes) that wasn’t on “white gold” and amazed that it would fit – my ‘pinky’ is the same size as Lorna’s ‘ring finger’.

I bought it immediately from H. Samuel in St. James Centre, Edinburgh – ably assisted by Kirsten, and I can thoroughly recommend her!

Currently, I’m using a Sony Alpha 580 (donated to me by Sony) and I have a selection of lenses from Konica Minolta, Minolta or Sigma.

I’ve used Panasonic stuff occasionally previously but if it’s not with the Sony, it’s with a Nikon these days.

    Lovely present and a lovely image Nik

  • Thanks – on both counts.

    Not bad for somebody that’s unemployed or hand-holding @ 1:1?
