Last year, on January ninth, my wonderful Grandma passed away. I think of her nearly every day- often more than once. She was full of kindness, and she inspired us all to explore the world. Things will never be the same without her, but they shall still be all the better for having known her.
She left me a wee smidge of money (each of us grandkids), which I tucked away, and just last week, with help of my lovely neighbour- who is a clever and talented photographer, and a great friend, I bought (on trade me!) this beautiful beast! :-D.
It is an Olympus DSLR E-300, with a 14-45 lense, and yes, I am still learning what that all means, and yes, I am just at the very beginning of learning how it all works- but already I am smitten!
Here is me 'appropriating' (y'all know that's the proper term for when artists copy stuff eh! ;-).) THAT picture of oneself holding ones camera that is so common. But it's different if it's a new camera, and one is all loved up right? ;-).
Life is already looking better through that wee peephole. I can't wait to see more! :-).*
