Today is my blog’s fifth birthday! Over the years I’ve jumped around from one blog interface to the next … I started out on Blogspot.com and then moved to Vox, but now I’m in my own home on my own server. My early posts have all been imported here, so I have a full archive of my journey (although I can’t guarantee you’d find anything worthwhile if you were to browse my earlier entries, other than a look into my no-longer-relevant past!). They still have some touching-up to do, photos and styling and such, so please pardon the mess if you happen to make your way through the old stuff. :)

Over the past year I’ve picked up my blogging and done my best to create valuable content. I really appreciate all of you who read my blog and hope that you learn a thing or two from it. There’s much more to come, too … tutorials, videos, tips/tricks, etc., so stay tuned!

    Love the ice cream pic – great depth of field & colours look fab.

    Would love to show you images I took only 5 days ago literally in my own back garden of a mother Blue tit feeding a baby bird using the 7D and a Tamron 70 -300mm.

    Looking forward to getting a copy of your book
