Frank gives us the theme of technology this week.
I’m a bit of a technophobe, especially when it comes to computers, as this was something not apparent in the classroom when I was at school!
I’ve always liked to take photographs, first with a 126 cartridge camera and later a 110 as I could never get on with the 35mm rolls of film.
In those days, you’d take your shots, get the film developed and discover nice pictures of the inside of your pocket or handbag, your feet, the sky or a thumb and maybe a headless body.
Enter the digital age and it saved me a fortune, especially when I visited NZ as I took over a 1000 photographs!
Being a complete novice, a basic supermarket camera was OK for me, but when we lived on the boat, it was totally inadequate to capture the river scenes and wild life, so I asked Hubby if I could treat myself to a decent camera for my 60th birthday.
We opted for a Nikon Coolpix as it was on special offer, and I waited patiently for the right moment to take this:
This was one of two kingfishers that regularly visited the marina. Beautiful.
I’ve taken loads of pictures since, but this will always hold a special place in my heart.
