i don't post enough

Maybe it is because I am a rubbish photographer maybe I am just lazy but I run four blogs and this is my hardest one to post on. Maybe I should just post picture, no! None of mine are good enough!!! Maybe I should make excuses, it's my disability, the wheelchair makes it hard! Maybe  I rubbish at writing about camera's I must say I am rubbish at writing about other stuff as well. I start out with the best of intentions, I thought maybe get the Panasonic out and keep it in my pocket and use it more, it's small and takes a great photo. How do they do that with such a small camera?
I must m a me more of an effort, should I join a camera club, note to self when does Margate camera club meet, it used to be at Holy Trinity church..
Wheelchair access will be good but do I want to turn out of an evening? I am making excuses and I am not even out of bed yet.

Resolution, it's a bit late to call it a new year resolution. Take more pictures and post more blog posts.

Canon d60 is not a Canon 60d

This is the 60D that I want
Silly me. I got all excited it was buy it now with just over a day to go on the auction. How come no one else had spotted this bargain. One hundred and thirty nine pounds at least a hundred pounds cheaper than the one I saw the other day and that was an absolute wreck. It may have been a good camera once but that was a long time ago. This one was virtually new by comparison. Surely the gods were looking down on me. Just look again. Read the description. As new in original box complete with charger and spare battery this six mega pixel. That's a mistake the 60d  has eighteen mega pixels. WHAT 6 MP. ITS NOT A 60d it is a d60
Note to self if it looks to good to be true it usually is to good to be true. I know it was late and I was tired. Those painkillers had knocked the edge off my senses, but, but what. I nearly brought an over priced camera because I wasn't reading the description properly. Let this be a lesson to you all don't take pain killers drink whiskey and browse for cameras at the same time

this is the D60 that is so old it could be my grandad
