I am an extremely amateur photographer. I recently emigrated to Brisbane, Australia from England, and love to travel, so have a real hotch potch of pictures and subjects. I don’t know that I have really found my ‘thing’ yet – I like to snap things I find pleasing to my eye, and sometimes they come out OK. I recently started doing a little bit of writing after much encouragement from my very good friend (and talented writer) Miri – I seem to be a bit more successful on the writing front, with a competition win and two home page featurings under my belt – very humbling, but very very exciting!

We recently upgraded from a 4 year old olympus mju, to a Lumix TZ15, which has really whipped me into a frenzy of photography – I’m really enjoying it, especially trying to get some macro skill going.

Any advice, comments, tips etc gratefully received, I am incredibly amateur and constantly overwhelmed by the artwork on here, and very flattered whenever any of you super talented lot take the time out to view or comment on my pics. Thanks!

Shiny new toy!

Today we treated ourselves to a brand new toy – a Lumix TZ15. I am very excited, although a little tiny bit sad about moving on from the trusty mju – reckon we’ll hold onto that though as a wee back up for a while. I can’t wait to take some new pics, and explore the new stuff like macros etc – I love all the stuff in the macro groups, and can only hope I manage som…

I am quite speechless this morning! I have a very good friend who is a fantastic writer – I love reading her stuff, even though it does feel very intimate to read the writings of a close friend – don’t know why. Anyway, she belongs to a group which always has great sounding challenges, and I love reading the stuff she writes for them (very successfully I might add!). / This pa…
