mrs. lucky from luckyville

If you know me in real life, have followed this blog for a while, spoken to me on Twitter, or ever even read anything I've ever written, you'll probably know that the one thing I've hankered after for pretty much my entire life, is a DSLR. I studied photography at college when I was sixteen (too many years ago to think about), and have spent most of my life wielding a camera (the Husband will verify this...), but we've never been in the position to spend the money on one, even a second-hand model. In short, we're like Mr. and Mrs. Skint from Poor Town, and if I had a spare few hundred pounds, we'd spend it on something that everyone could enjoy.
So imagine my surprise, disbelief and sheer joy when the postman delivered a huge cardboard box a few weeks ago that contained nothing other than.... drrrrrrrrrr.... a Canon EOS 400D, spare lens, batteries, charger, remote control, case and photography manual. After turning it over, I managed to deduce that it was from our friends Heather and Rich, who had thoughtfully put their postcode in the senders details (Sherlock, I am not). So this post is in honour of my lovely friends, who made my dream come true - thanks to them, I can now take pictures like the ones below. Huzzah!

  3. How lovely are your friends? I love these shots and I'm really glad your dream has come true but for what it's worth I've always thought your photos were pretty stupendous anyway (but what do I know, I'm just a snapper). Enjoy your new toy and I look forward to even more fab pictures xx
