Orchid + camera news

Did you all have a lovely Christmas? I hope so. Mine was very nice. I ate a bit, drank a bit, hung out with family and had the odd nap thrown in for good measure.

I had to share the beautiful Palaenopsis orchid my parents gave me. Isn't it stunning? Just so beautiful it almost looks fake.

And did you notice how nice and clear these shots are? I hope so, because the pics were taken with my new camera!!
Yes!! I can finally stop complaining that I don't have a camera as Molly gifted me one for Christmas.
Well, at least Lyndon tells me it was from her, but I have no idea how she went to the shops with her sore knee.
So, I'm really excited and have been merrily snapping away.

Without even knowing what cameras I had been thinking about, Molly bought me a Canon 600D - one of the models I was rather keen on. So spoilt!

Yay, so you might see some nice, clear shots on the old blog from now on. I have felt like I have neglected it a bit so think might be just what I need.

So now I wish you a very happy new year - I really hope it's a great one for all of us.
ps these shots were taken with a 50mm lens on f1.8 :)


  1. Enjoy your new camera! I haven't been able to put mine down ever since I bought it! And the orchids are beautiful! I took some orchid pitcures yesterday at my brothers place. My sister in law is orchid mad and has about 9 plants in her house!

    Happy New Year... Sophie xo

  2. Well done Molly, i'll bet you bought it online. Beautiful orchid, i hope you and your family have a wonderful new year.
