Having fought against switching from the purity of film, via a little Canon P&S to what I use now, a fancy-schmancy 5D Mark ii 5D Mark iii, I am well and truly digitally converted. The freedom to take a hundred photos when in the past I would have waited for the 'perfect' shot has been liberating - not to mention a severe drain on my hard drive.

With my photos, what you see is what you get; I peer at the world with one eye closed or with head on one side; I see bokeh sparkles in the bottom of my wineglass - but that might just be an alcoholic haze!

My photos are almost always sooc. I do not 'Photoshop' (far too complicated!); instead I crop using Picasa - and occasionally sharpen or adjust the contrast.

I hope you like what you see; I am my own most severe critic (well, apart from my grumpy husband!) but I welcome your comments. I am happy for you to use my images (according to my Creative Commons licence of course) but would at the very least, appreciate being told.

My 'professional' blog leaps and bounds and its two sisters a window into 2i's world and older posts from a window into 2i's world might interest you if you are a teacher. Or even if you aren't.
