Dress – eBay, cardigan and bag – charity shop, sunnies - QD

The glorious spell of weather we had at the weekend had to be taken advantage of so I whipped this summer dress out of storage plus this cardigan (which has never been worn by me even though I’ve owned it well over a year now). The 3/4 sleeves area major drawback for me and my chilly forearms.
I have amassed what may well be hundreds of photographs from out and about over the past month that I have yet to really look through let alone pick out and tinker with ready to share. That does seem to be the main drawback of getting really into photography, all the admin afterwards! Once again I'm getting that temptation to start looking at upgrading to an SLR from my old bridge, the main factor stopping me is that horror about the PRICE! I was lucky that Husband gave me this old Konica Minolta bridge which he had long finished with so I don't even know how much it cost us to start with. As a dreadfully clumsy person the idea of forking out a not-insignificant sum on a camera and then - gulp - accessories, is freaking me out! I do feel much safer with this old sturdy contraption but sadly it's not cutting the mustard anymore. The focus is dreadfully slow to get ready, meaning many action shots don't even have the subject in the picture!  All very exasperating.
Have you got any SLR advice for me?

  1. your camera exasperation doesn't come across in your pictures. Cameras are pretty sturdy these days and along with using a neck strap you'd be pretty safe. I'm not one to offer advice on cameras as the last three I have had have been chosen on the colour!
    Love this dress, wasn't it lovely to see a little bit more of the sun, even though it was a bit chilly!

  2. I think you take lovely pictures - I quite fancy getting my mum a bridge camera, although I wouldn't be without my SLR now. It's made it hard to find a compact camera that I can get along with! :)

  3. Gorgeous picture, I think your photos are great. The new look blog is nice too - I've been away ages, bet it's not that new is it?

  4. Pretty!!! I haven't git a clue about cameras but gave you tried buying one second-hand at all???might be cheaper? Groupon have had some SLR offers recently too!

  5. I'm probably the worst person to ask about cameras but I really love my Sony DSLR, it's not as expensive as a Canon or a Nikon but I still really like the pictures it takes :)
