I bought a new lens at the weekend, the Canon 70-300 f4/5.6 USM IS, which I’m very excited about. I can only use the flipping thing when I have it on a tripod or propped up on the windowsill at the moment with the dodgy wrists. So I took this picture balancing the camera on the back of the sofa and shooting out the window.
I got in the car for the first time in three months yesterday to make sure I hadn’t forgotten how to drive. I drove up and down the wee layby outside the house a couple of times and was knackered then. How is the car that heavy? I nearly checked that there was power-steering fluid in the yoke under the bonnet but I can’t lift the bonnet either. So I’ll leave off driving attempts for another while yet, til I get a bit of strenth built up! I’ll practice by lifting the camera!
