Yep there is no way to break this gently it has been pointed out to me tonight by my wife I am not a very good photographer. I leave the lens cap on I am to slow and I fumble with the camera. Do I care? No is the answer! A big resounding NO. I love my time messing around with a camera. The fact is I don't care what others think of my efforts, they are right, I am rubbish but I enjoy it.
