Re:


John has one of those but doesn't often use it, and I have Polaroid sunglasses so I know what you mean.

Glad you're happy with it and that you're having such fun!

Evidently the polaroid filter is most useful for when there's a reflection, such as the ones you took of the sea - and for taking shots of the sky if you want to darken it to make the clouds look whiter. Very clever!

It is when you're photographing through a window and in extremely bright light. But it's not easy to use, it takes a lot of tweaking with the camera's settings. I think I'm sort of set up now, although I'd love a fish-eye lens but I can't spend R4,000 right now.

Yes, photography can be a very expensive hobby if you want to get deep into it. It takes time too to collect all the equipment as you go along and decide on extras you'd like to have!

Indeed. I went out with the camera today, got everything perfect for photos but the light was horrible, far too overcast and dreary for photography.

Funny how photos always seem to look better on a bright clear day ... but somehow dreary weather can also be good, and kind of moody ... depends on the subject.

Re:


The problem with the sea is that when the sly is grey, so is the water, so you get just a general greyness, it's not interesting. I did take some of the sky the other day, but they're not terribly interesting. I got more nice butterfly shots this morning. I see the sea is a particularly lovely shade of blue right now, I wish I had the energy and ability to walk there and back, then I would go to take photos but it's too hot and I'm not feeling well so I'll just admire it from the window.

Mr B's got a lot of competitions this week so we won't be going anywhere. I could tell him to take a lift with a friend and take myself off somewhere but the heat annoys me. At least if he's with me, he copes with the driving and helps me when I get agitated with the heat.

Re:


I love going off by myself sometimes and just driving where the mood takes me, sitting quietly in the shade at a pretty coffee shop and enjoying a cappuccino and collecting my thoughts. And if you have aircon in the car the heat shouldn't affect you much .. try it one day, you might enjoy just being out and about by yourself, think of the positives!

Re:


No, I can't, getting in and out of the car is a mission for me. I get annoyed when I can't move. I've never been a "stop for coffee" sort of person anyway. Even when we go out, I go where I want to go and then home, when we're on holiday, I have every stop planned and get irritable when he wants to stop somewhere that's not on the schedule, so I couldn't do that anyway. Not my kind of thing unfortunately, like going to the casino, I can't do that. He likes to go, and I go with him, but then I spend my money and then say I want to leave, so no that wouldn't work for me.
