Just showing off

October 10, 2012

I recently got to go on a holiday to spend time with my family back in NZ. While we were there my family took a boat trip on a replica steam boat out around lake Taupo. It was such a clear beautiful day that all the kids (and my sister in-law) got to take turns steering the boat on the way to see some Maori carvings.

I loved getting a chance to play paparazzi, getting shots of my family that they usually would have run and hidden from or over posed like overly enthusiastic catalogue models, *cough*... Kirsty... you know who you are! Who knew all it takes to distract them is an expensive piece of aquatic equipment and stunning scenery... looks like I had best start earning more if I want to keep documenting that lot. In the process of  all this documentation, I got to get a really good feel for my 'new' (really, realllly old) 50mm lens that my husband surprised me with, I think I finally have the hang of the manual setting. Before most of my photos looked like they had been taken with a lens that was suffering from severe cataracts.

So this is me showing off about my boat trip and my new lens... I was away for a whole month so don't be thinking this is the last time you'll be seeing my happy snaps, because lets be honest, it's not.
