Good Afternoon everyone!

I hope you're happy a lovely weekend.

After saving up I treated myself to a camera instead of buying anything in the January sales.

It's a Canon EOS 1000D SLR. I must admit, I'm not really sure what I'm doing yet but on first impression the quality is fantastic and I like the fact that it's light to carry.

Here's some practice shots taken before the Christmas decorations came down, always a sad moment!

And a couple of other textures and items around the house:

I'm particulalry pleased with the close ups our bedroom's beaded lampshade. I really like interpreting patterns and textures in close up.

I decided to use of of the images for my new blog banner using the free editing software that came with the camera. I hope you like it!

Hope everyone is having a good 2011 so far.

Love Lottie x

Are you taking up any new hobbies or restarting old ones in 2011?
Any suggestions for beginner photography blogs?


  1. looks like a great camera lovely picks :)

  2. Amazing! I need a new camera, any tips on what you would recommend at a decent price range x

  3. @Imo - thanks love! Hmmm, I would suggest going to somewhere like Jessops for a chat then you could have a look around online. I think Nikon and Canon's are the two top brands x
