Why I photograph

Photography can mean something different to each person from an expression of art, to capturing life’s greatest moments, to photos from the past or simply ‘happy snaps’. I look at photography as a way to capture moments you do not want to forget, and as a way to record how I see life from my eyes. After all the camera is just a tool to use in order to show others what your eyes can see.

The creation of this blog is in essence to inspire myself to take more photos. Life seems to get in the way, and the camera does not come out as much as I would like. Once upon a time my children always said “mummy takes photos”, now they say “mummy does computer stuff” and honestly that pulls at the heart strings.
Photography is something that can be shared, enjoyed and cherished and as much as I would like to be able to completely remove myself from the computer it is not going to happen any time soon, so why not merge the two things.

I was 12 years old when I received my first camera, it was your typical film style point and shoot camera but I loved it. I was then given my first SLR camera, a Canon EOS 500 and there is just no way I could go back to a point and shoot camera, I still have that camera today and honestly cannot see myself parting with. It was a great camera. Now I am using a digital SLR, again it’s a Canon, a 350D and I have had it for 7 years. One day I will upgrade it, to what…I am not sure but I do know it will be a Canon.

I am excited about getting out and taking more photographs and I hope you enjoy what photographs I share with you on here.
