About Me

My photo

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm a single mum with a beautiful daughter and I started crocheting 4 years ago when I quit smoking, I'm a huge fan of the granny square and mostly spend my free time making blankets as well as occasionally trying to expand my crafty skills :-)

Playing with my new camera :-) (Loads of photos, you have been warned!)

Last October, Myf and I went to visit my sister in Kent for a few days.  We had such a lovely time with them all!  I was chatting to my brother in law about my little digital camera and the swim it had over the summer and he mentioned having a camera that he doesn't use any more.  He disappeared into the loft for a bit and came back dome with a beautiful Canon camera with lots of shiny buttons!
I've waited so long before trying it out partly because of nerves and partly because I don't tend to carry a camera around (which I'm trying to correct as I often wish I could take a picture of something)

So yesterday, Myf and I were feeling a little better in the afternoon and fancied a walk through the park.  I brought the camera....

So far, I've kept it on the Auto function and just played around with the zoom but I've just figured out how to set it onto black and white so I'm going to have fun taking some arty shots :-)

In a couple of photos, you can see a War Memorial-it's up on Pontypridd Common which is up one of our lovely steep hills :-)  Myf and I are going to take a walk up there today (with the camera again) so you'll be seeing it again close up!  There's an amazing Stone Circle up there as well so hopefully the weather will stay lovely and I can share some great photos with you later.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
