Just down the street there’s this spot covered in water lilies, it’s behind a fence which I hope one day will be open to the public, does anyone know? @elderslennoxhead ? • Olympus + Telephoto • I’m determined to get better results tho, I need to start using a tripod and learning to understand about aperture, shutterspeed n stuff, I have the hardest time getting my head around this, but I will persevere as I want it to become second nature to me. It’s taken me 2 years I think, since I won this camera, to get up the courage to use it. I’m teaching myself and Scott’s helping me. He’s very good at illustrating what things mean. Getting me to close/open/close my eyes fast and slow, to illustrate shutter speed etc. explaining how pupils work to illustrate aperture, hope that some of this will soon start to stick, so I can get better qual images. I get frustrated easily, and have to frequently take 10 steps back, but I’ve proven to myself in the past that I can learn and overcome and I’m looking forward to the day when I don’t have to think so much. Lol 😂 I always wanted a DSLR but couldn’t afford one, so it was brilliant to win this Canera, not s DSLR but a mirrorless, fairly equal to one in many respects. #waterlilies #waterlily #pond #lennoxhead #newestate

Hello, old friend.
And here we are, you and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well and were very happy. And, above all else, know that we will love you, always. Sometimes I do worry about you, though. I think, once we’re gone, you won’t be coming back here for a while and you might be alone, which you should never be. Don’t be alone, Doctor. And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that, if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait 2000 years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived and save a whale in outer space. Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond, and this is how it ends.
