So, why has this rather fuzzy photograph made the ‘Photo of the day’?
Well, for a couple of reasons.
I know the writing isn’t in English, but you might notice the name ‘Grahama Mastertona’ on the pen. Which, I am assuming, is Graham Masterton in polish? I was sent an email from the authors mailing list some time last week offering these pens for sale after they’d over ordered for their ‘Written in Prison’ Award.
Seeing as Graham Masterton is really the only author that I still manage to get excited about whenever I see a novel of his I’ve not read, and an author that I’ve ‘reviewed’ the most and talked about the most and recommend to everyone I talk to about reading/books. So naturally, I jumped at the chance to grab one of the pens. Maybe in the hopes that some of his writing talent will magically flow out of it whenever I use it!
So, that’s why this pen is todays photovember picture.
I’m also now a day behind on photovember, due to the fact that Monday was a bit of a bad day with Marcus being unwell and as such pretty clingy. I doubt I’ll be able to catch up with it, but I think I’ve submitted a few ‘extras’ in previous posts that make up for it.
I have found a distadvantage of Through the Lens photography – at least in my case – my lenses are in need of a really damned good clean! If anyone has any tips on how to do this I would love to know, because this is something that has haunted me for a fair while now.
And as an added bonus, have a happy dog!
I managed to get the ‘big camera’ working!!
I use the quote marks because the resolution isn’t actually as good as my compact anymore. But, there is still something very satisfying about using a dSLR; even if it is now 13 years old and probably classed as a vintage camera.
I honestly prefer it’s responsiveness compared to the cybershot and the fact that it is through the lens rather than a screen on the back (which can suffer from glare and being unable to see)
Anyway, because I enjoyed the Eos 20D so much, here are a few more extras.
