Busy doing nothing


Today's theme is "calendars". I chose to take a picture of the inside of my diary to demonstrate how little I have to do at the moment. Of course, it's a complete lie. I'm insanely busy this week, running up and down the country for work until I finish this job on Friday and start a new, more local one on Monday. I just haven't written any of it in the diary yet because it wasn't decided until very recently. I thought it'd be a nice subject, anyway. I was also testing the low light capabilities of my new camera. This picture was shot at ISO 3200, if you can believe it!

And just to clarify, I've focussed on tomorrow's date because I thought it best from an artistic viewpoint. And not at all because I forgot what day it is. No. That would just be silly. *ahem*

Now to the subject of why I even have a new camera. As some of you may know, a bunch of cretins broke in and stole a load of stuff, including a laptop, a Wii, and all my camera gear. We are not amused. Fortunately the camera was insured and has since been replaced with a Canon EOS 500D with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Replacements for my other lenses, including a 28-135mm f/3.5-5.8 and a 50mm f/1.8 (the famous "nifty fifty") are on their way. So I'm able to now continue my photographing.

Aside from the heartache and chaos caused by those vile creatures, I found a new website for inspiration. Daily Shoot provides one new photography idea or topic every day, either through the website or on Twitter. I'm going to be using these as inspiration for my 365 photos. I realise how badly I've lapsed with those and have large chunks missing, so hopefully I can get back on track. Or maybe just start again from today.
