I think I got my first camera when I was about 7. A little red one that was my pride and joy! I have sort of been photography obsessed ever since, but somehow of the years (and with the coming of the digital age) I got lazy. It became so easy to just snap photos left, right and centre without a care in the world! Lately, as you may have noticed, I got so lazy that I just started using the 'cross process' button on Picasa to hide my laziness! So I am making it my mission to rekindle my photography skills and give my photos more attention. Lately I have been in awe of the beautiful Autumn colours around the garden. I love that combination of life and decay, where the summer plants are dying and letting their seeds drift away and the sturdy winter plants are just at their happiest. I ran around the garden collecting all sorts of beautiful and random things and started playing around in the old glass house. I'm sure I'll get better with time but I must say I was pleasantly surprised by what a bit of effort can do!
