Bye Bye Clive

I've always wanted a DSLR. Before I went overseas in May I decided to buy a Canon Powershot G10. This is the model before the DSLR's. Ok so I know its weird but I actually named my camera Clive. He was my only friend while I was travelling alone.

Although the Powershot is a good camera, I wanted a DSLR so I could learn more about photography. I decided that it was time for an upgrade. I recently purchased the Canon EOS 500d. I am both excited and sad. I know that Clive is going to a good home (thanks Leeia for buying him) but I am still sad since there was so much sentimental value there.

I'm still waiting for my new toy to arrive. So watch this space. I will be taking a lot more food porn shots that's for sure.

BYE BYE CLIVE.. This post is for you :0)

lol, I name most of my stuff too. Its funny how close you get to certain things and its good to be able to address them.

I have a DSLR too, but I'm absolutely hopeless. I need to learn how to use it properly.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your food pron.
