yes I’ve had a birthday this last week and received some lovely cards and gifts. My main presents came from my husband David and included a Battery Grip for my camera which will be so useful for our trip to SA along with a Lowe Pro Slingshot 200AW Camera Bag so that I can now carry my camera with my 3 lenses without worrying about them getting damaged. Only trouble with having all this gear is that when you’re out somewhere taking photo’s those that don’t know about photography are under the impression that you must be a ‘semi professional’ at the least and ask questions about taking photo’s – little do they know I’m just starting out myself. I also had a lovely CD by Paul Potts…yes look him up on the web and then you’ll know who he is. For those of you that enjoy cooking and especially desserts well put them together with James Martin and it makes for a super ‘must have’ book and I received a copy from my friend!
What else has been happening..Well on Monday we went away to Market Harborough for just the one night and it was very pleasant stay at the 3Swans Hotel. They have an excellent restaurant so we enjoyed a superb meal on the Monday night.
Market Harborough is blessed with some wonderful small boutique shops and yes I did go shopping…in readiness for my holidays of course! They also have some very interesting old buildings and here’s a couple of photo’s I took. They not very bright as although it wasn’t raining it was very dull and grey. I have used some ‘actions’ created by Tash of DSSA fame for those of you familiar with Photoshop
The last main Bank Holiday is this weekend and although the weather forecast is for sunny and warm we don’t have anything planned although hopefully we will find time to get out and take some photo’s!!
Hope you all have a enjoyable weekend and if you are travelling – travel safe!!
Thanks for visiting and for leaving you comments I so enjoy and appreciate reading them.
