My New Years Day
I took myself off for a march today, down to the marina. Everyone else was happy lolling in bed and playing so I didn't waste my breath trying to persuade anyone to join me. It was good to get a bit of fresh air and exercise.
I took my new camera that my husband had very generously gifted me for Christmas. I have so much to learn in regards to operating the camera and photography in general, but I always find I learn best by having a go and referring to the manual as I go along (I'm up to how to attach the camera strap).
The images I like best were achieved with more luck than judgement, but still thrilled me how they came out. Others were rubbish though.
Back home there is lots more colour and I have been amusing myself taking close up shots in my craft corridor.
I love photos with 'depth of field' - is that what it's called? You know, when the background is blurry...
This is a new scarf I have made and am currently writing up the pattern, along with the matching mitts and hopefully I will bring these to you soon. I have christened them the 'snow dipped mitts and scarf set' although we have yet to see any snow round here; some cold and frosty morning last week but today was definitely milder, part from the bitter wind.
I'm back to work tomorrow after 10 days off, and, as it's a bit quieter on the wedding front at this time of year, I have a short day on Saturday, so I think that is when the decorations will come down. It will be nice to get back to normal and for my husband to have a rest after his very busy work period, and for us to see a bit more of him!
'till next time...
