“How did it get so late so soon?”
― Dr. Seuss

We randomly ventured to Basingstoke this evening (another nearby town) after deciding that it was time to update the camera and all it’s associated lens’s! 45 painful minutes were spent in Jessops whilst the poor sales guy tried his best to learn the computer but finally it was done and I’m the proud owner of an A58 (the next camera up from my current) and three lens’s included! To top it all off, the lens I’ve been dreaming of – the one that encompasses two of my major lens’s into one – has also been acquired courtesy of a partial early Christmas present from my parents – but I’m not allowed it until Christmas! Needless to say that at the end of this year and into next, Photography is going to be majorly on the cards as I enjoy all the new gear (and try and sell the old…) So today’s photos are the shopping centre which was beautifully lit for late night Christmas shopping.

Being a photographer and also doing a lot for DeviantART which involved computer work, I thought dual screens would be beneficial and honestly, I would be lost without them… Until this monster arrived that is…



(And when I say we still don’t have internet, I am telling a tiny white lie. We have a mobile wireless thingy which is horrendous in terms of cost and usage so time is precious! )

My two screen set up has now become one but the best bit is I’ve done away with my computer box and I just hook up my macbook (which has the same stats as my computer did, along with much more) when I need to use a  screen. This means that when I write a blog, if there’s nothing else going on, it looks huge….


As you can probably tell, the office has had somewhat of a woman’s input into it, but rest assured that William does have his on little bit of desk with no girly stuff around it whatsoever!

The huge screen also means that when Buddy isn’t physically here…


It still feels like he is! A little bit…
