Best Photo's This Week


The Boston Globe has the best sports photography of the week here, and they're pretty spectacular this week. One day, I want to be able to take pics like these - I guess I need to get out there practicing more...

My Favorite Wedding Pic


0174_IMG.jpg, originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.

Of all the great pics we got in our album, this is probably my favorite (although this one runs it close). We managed to get a new photo printer the other day, and it has the ability to print out in 13x19, so this is going to be my first attempt (and got some hanging things as well, so I might actually finally, 12 months late, get some stuff on my walls in the office at work). The paper arrived today (that stuff isn't cheap), so it'll be on my project list for this weekend (along with the less fun task of working out why our washing machine has started to create huge puddles of water in the basement, urgh).

Best Way to View Flickr?

This one is the best I've found so far. In a galaxy far, far away.......


Since I got the new camera, I've spent loads more time looking at different photos and trying to work out how they were taken (along with reading a few books on the subject as well). I have a feeling that this new hobby thing is going to take a while to get the hang of, but I'm having lots of fun finding stuff out in the meantime.

New Camera


IMG_0017.JPG, originally uploaded by Aaron in Denver.

So after weeks/months of reviewing, deciding, changing my mind, being a good boy etc etc, I finally succumbed to the temptation of buying a new camera.

This one is a big step up from the last one - a Canon DSLR. Having survived on point and shoot cameras for all of my life so far, the array of buttons is kinda overwhelming, but luckily for me (and my sanity over the weekend) it has a fully automatic mode.

Hopefully my pictures will gradually improve over time - I spent all of last night reading the manual, so at least I got an idea of what each of the buttons do, although how that translates into what happens with a photo is still a bit of a mystery. So, I ordered a couple of books on Amazon to try and help me out - if anyone's got any recommendations then let me know.

So, two photos with this post - the top one is Fynn, who displays an unwavering excitement to all my new techie toys (I think she gets it from her mother), and below is Avery, who stopped by on Saturday to share some hotdogs.

As Neil said, you can take the boy out of Newcastle, but you can't take Newcastle out of the boy.

Both Tonks and Neil finally got their photos uploaded, so check them out.
