New Year New Beginings

A very happy new year to all of you, I hope that 2012 brings you much joy and happiness.

I’ve had a fantastic couple of weeks off with my family over the holidays and done nothing about updating my blogs or reading anyone elses but now it’s time to do something about catching up (not sure if I’ll find the time but I’ll try) and set myself some goals for the new year.

As many of you will know I’m a keen amateur photographer and use both my iPhone 4 and excellent Fuji HS20EXR to capture shots of all sorts of things ranging from the standard happy snaps of the kids to attempts at being arty and interesting as well as some of the food I cook and eat. This passion is something I’ve had for many years but when I bought the Fuji last year I realised I had little or no idea what I was actually doing and the good shots I was getting were more down to luck and what little I remembered about composition from my school art classes. As many of you know I whine a lot and being a wonderful and caring wife Mrs BC very sweetly bought me a know your camera lesson for Christmas where I’ll be able to spend a couple of hours with a pro at the end of this month and get a better understanding of why some shots work and others don’t.

Now with the above in mind and given the lack of free time I already have I’m not at a point in my life where I feel I can commit myself to a full 365 photo a day project but am ready to commit to sharing at least one unique photo a week with my readers or project 52. I will try to learn something new with each picture and at least vary my subjects but come the end of the year there may well just be 52 photo’s of the kids or the dog we’ll have to see how it goes. I’ll attempt with each post to include some geeky info such as the camera used, what post processing if any I used, location and subject if it’s not obvious.

As always I appreciate any and all feedback but with these posts in particular I’d really love your critiques and thoughts about each photo as well as any advice you may be willing to impart.

My second goal or target for the year is to try to cook or eat something new each week, now I don’t necessarily mean a new ingredient although there may well be some of those but I’d like to try to either make up or try at least one unique recipe each week. Failing that I’d at least like to try something new to me in a restaurant or with friends. I’ll endeavour to share as many of these as possible with you through my other blog Mr Bunny Chow Cooks and again appreciate any ideas tips and feedback.

There ends my stated aims and ambitions for 2012 I hope you all stick with me and enjoy the ride as much I as I plan to. Who knows we might even learn something together.

Take care and keep in touch

TTFN
