Camera lens still broken, not heard anything yet. In desperation I charged my little old compact camera, which was on its last legs when I got the DSLR, to take on my bike ride today. I lost count of the number of times I held the LCD viewer close to my eye...

Just before our annual February half term trip to Lyme Regis, my camera lens broke. Again. The first time was about a month ago and it was my own fault - the camera was in my bike bag, which fell on the floor. Fortunately it was easily fixed - one call to N...

Another catch-up on my 100 Happy Days photo project. As I suspected, I fell off the wagon on days that I'm actually in work. I leave home before it's fully light, I come home in the dark, and no, I don't take my camera to work. So I've relaxed the rules for...
