Sofa the Sorting……(sorry!)

Well at last the antibiotics are kicking in and I’m starting to feel almost human again – not that I’m back to my normal ‘100 mile an hour ‘ self but its a start. Jack is definitley not back to his normal self – he turned down the chance of going out for ‘Fish n Chips’ with the old folks -unheard of. He’s defo not swinging the leg (faking it for those who don’t understand the lingo). Anyway it’s been another ‘share the sofa’ day, well some of it has. I must confess to doing a bit of tidying and cleaning – but not for long, honest!!! I’ve also made a start of wading through the 1000’s of photos on my computer – ever wish you’d never started something. It didn’t help that I took over a 1000 pics at this weekends final – I would have taken more but the proffesional photographer seemed to be doing his best to distract me.

Every cup final has a real photographer there taking photos, which we then get the chance to buy at ridiculous prices – last year I spent £50+ on 4 pictures (I didn’t have my camera then) . This year there were 2 photographers there – neither party seemed happy about this, they were even less happy when they were told they weren’t allowed at the ends of the pitch just the sides and me with my ‘ickle camera’ (you should have seen the size of one of their lenses – and as for his pole -ahem!) well I was given an orange vest and was allowed to go wherever I wanted. Hence much heckling from real photographer dude – until he realized I was a total novice and therefore no competition whatsoever (he might think a little bit diferently now he’s seen a couple of my shots)  Then he started offering me some hints and tips – most of them went completely over my head – I’m still a bit of an ‘aim and fire’ type of girl but I know now that I’m better sitting lower down and I need a tripod. He let me try his -can’t think why but everyone cracked up at the end of the game when I said I’d had the photographers ‘pole’ in my hand(!)

Time to start studying my camera more.

Sorting out more photos over the weekend

Bring it on
