A fit start

Well the first month back at work and things are going well. We have
been going to the gym regularly, and I have got back into my running

We had our first walk of the year, we headed out along the old Louth –
Horncastle Canal and then back through the villages of Conningsby and Tattershall.

A good fit start to the year.

Happy New Year to Everyone

A New Year and its going to be new start to my photography.

The last couple of years has seen me do very little photography.  I used to shoot at lot of landscapes, architecture and studio work,  I had even  shot the odd model portfolio for a Peterborough model agency.

But for some reason the creative side of me lost interest in photography.

Luckily for me we have a few keen photographers here at work, and them together with inspiration from internet sites such as Luminous Landscape sparked my interest again.

I had always ignored digital, not as good, not real, and the cameras were slow and hard to use.

Last year showed me that digital cameras has started to come of age. I had the pleasure of shooting with Canon 1DII , and I also got to try the Nikon D70, both were a pleasure to shoot with.

I have decided that i’ll give digital a try and to that end I have purchased a basic Nikon digital compact, to get me started.

There is a lot to learn but the adventure starts next month.

Getting Married in Lincolnshire

Caroline’s Graduation – Number 2

Not satisfied with one graduation; Caroline sponsored by Mouchel under took a second higher education qualification, this time a HNC in Computing.

“The last two years have seen much change in my life, many highs, of which Richard proposing to me, on the Wales biking tour has to be the most memorable, to terrible lows, the death of my Mother. Its been two years of fun, sadness and many late nights. I would here like to publicly thank my family and Richard for all they have had to put up with, and now with much shame here are the pictures… they may not stay up for long …

Thank you; Caroline”.

Congratulations Caroline
