The sensation that is swoopo


Yet again I have left it too long since my last post! Why you may ask, well firstly I was ill for a couple of weeks with a cold/chest infection which seems to be going around at the minute, and as I sit here typing I am still coughing as it's symptoms linger! Secondly I have been helping my dad to tile the kitchen (one of his DIY projects) a skill which he assures me will come in useful when I have a family and a home of my own! In reality I will pay someone else to do it for me!

The driving lessons are going well, my instructor says I am almost ready for my test! If my eyesight is good enough to pass (it is borderline) then I look forward to traveling further afield to take pictures as I am finding Hull really uninspiring at the minute!

Speaking of taking pictures, last week I won a 10 megapixel Casio 'point and shoot' camera (which is going for £140 in places like Comet and Amazon) for a bargain price of £37 on www.swoopo.co.uk which I thought would be handy just to slip in my pocket when I am not carrying my bigger Panasonic Lumix around. I almost won a Cannon DSLR (worth £550 in shops) for around £90 but narrowly missed out! In the last 2 weeks, a friend of mine has won 3 laptops 2 nintendo Wii's an expensive watch, £150, a phone and a couple of other things on the same site! One of the laptops he paid in total just £40 for! Perhaps I should try and win a new XBox 360 as mine has just died! :(

Last night I watched one of those really badly dubbed 70's Kung Fu movies, I think it was called 'Genius School For Kung Fu' it was so bad I was compelled to watch it!

I am working tomorrow, but I have bought a pack of succulent looking bacon so I can make some bacon butties for me and my colleague in the morning, so life's not all bad!

The photo is one I took a while ago as I walked past the local 5 a side astroturf pitch!

Kev, get thee thinking cap on re photographs, ya don't need to travel too far, try the 'theatre of the mundane'.

Did you learn any moves from the Kung Fu movie? Or was it purely for entertainment?

You could just look for a different angle, I mean, I've been to a load of VW events now, seeing the same vehicles (largely) for a number of years, it *does* start to get difficult to get excited about taking snaps, but then one year I thought - I know, I'll shoot the whole day as Macro...and bingo (lots of fun)! ;)
