Another of my Favorites

Very busy at the minute. No time for new pics.
Did get a chance to pop in to Jessops and have a look at the D40x and the D80 from Nikon.

What great cameras. The picture viewers are fantastic. The d40x has a bit of a plastic feel, but still looks good. I do love the D80, nice feel, great picture quality and nice sound too. Will have to have a closer look at the d200. I think the d40x has fallen out of the running when I plan on getting a new camera.

Oh well, we can always wish. Maybe I should rather invest in a great lens. There was a nice 50-500 from sigma at £799. That should cover all eventualities.

Will have to see.

If you want people to read your blog, mention a Macbook in your title.

I saw this building when walking to the bank on my way to work this morning. I had to pull out the D70 and take a shot.

It really does not do the scene justice, but hey ho, it was the only shot I had time to take today. Work is a bit hectic. Think I will post one of my favourite shots tomorrow. It is currently my desktop picture.

See you tomorrow.

PS for any bloggers out there, I had more than triple the normal amount of people visit my blog yesterday all because I wrote about a problem with my macbook. Thanks to Dan from Macworld for the solution.

Feel free tom email me if you are interested in what it is.

Any of you have the new Macbook??

I don't know what to do.

The edge of my macbook is driving me mad. There is a double edge right near the trackpad. The bottom of the double edge is hard and sharp. When I use my trackpad, I rest my palm on the edge of the laptop, so it is easier to keep my fingers on the pad. After five minutes it really starts digging in to my hand and is very uncomfortable.

I have sent a complaint to the apple feedback link. I checked the forums and the only suggestion that I came across was to file or sand down the edge. Not ideal in my book and you will probably find it will invalidate my warrenty with apple.

Have any of you had the same problem??

See you tomorrow

I took this one on my trip to the aquarium and just like it. I am going to post it on vazaar in the water topic and see how it gets on.

Still having a massive lack of inspiration to take photo's. Will really have to pull my finger out and take some shots.

One of my Favourites from my Trip

Finding it very hard to motivate myself after my holiday. Work is very busy and I am not overly motivated to carry my camera around. Will have to give myself a good kick up the butt.

Here is a picture I took on a game drive in a private game reserve called Tshukudu. It is a great place, so if you are inline for a holiday in South Africa, really think about going there.

A dandelion growing in my garden before I pulled them all out.

Back at Work

Back at work now, but I must say I am finding it very difficult to get the work head back on. I guess I will get there eventually.

Definitely can't dedicate any time to go and take any shots, luckily I have about 1000 to chose from so will be using those for the next week or so.

Here is one of a candle fro the dinner table from the parents house and another flower from their fantastic garden.

I nearly didn't make it on holiday.

On monday night before I left, I got home and decided to put my holiday cash in my passport. To my dismay, my passport did not expire in October, but infact expired on the 14th of April, the day I was supposed to fly home.

A sleepless night followed, but after many telephone calls later to SAA, my parents in South Africa, The home office in Durban, Immigration at JHB Airport and a few others I was at least told I would be allowed on the flight to South Africa but would not be allowed back.

It was up to me to apply for and get a new passport in under two weeks in south africa, with the Easter weekend in the middle. A bit of a tall order.

Anyway, more of the trip to follow. Here are two shots I took in my parents garden. I would like to thank Beth Ellen for giving me some advice on macro photography. Check out her website by clicking her name.

See you tomorrow

Thats right, I am back. No picture today just a quick hello. You all be happy to know I took nearly 6gb of shots while I was away, so have lots to show you. I will ore than likely be showcasing a lot of them on my flikr account and my other blog.

I will give you all a brief outline of what I have been up to over the last two and a half weeks and the trials and tribulations I have been through as well as the fantastic time I had.

Well, it is not all that great to be back, but hey ho, we can't spend all our time on holiday.

See you tomorrow with some pictures.
