Tuesday Photo Challenge – Technology

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.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
