Photography Course, Chips and John Betjeman

26 Feb

1  We’ve spent the day at Lanhydrock on a brilliant course on Camera Basics with Helen Morcom and Andrew  Rowe, patient and skilled teachers. The morning was in class and the afternoon was spent ‘in the field’. I can now take photos without using the Auto setting! I feel confident using the other settings and some of my photos are quite pleasing but I’ll have to keep practising.

3  John Betjeman on Cornwall -thanks to my singing pal, Sally B. Mum and Dad gave me his collection of poems, ‘A Ring of Bells’ many years ago and, of course, I still treasure it.

    It’s lovely Helen let you take a photo of her. And she looks so enthusiastic in it – passionate. She must be a great teacher!

    I love your beautiful things daily. They’re always so uplifting 🙂

      Thanks, Malou. Cornwall is a particularly lovely part of our country. We are lucky to live here.

        I’ve heard so much about Cornwall and of course, I love following the program of Rick Stein who has a restaurant there. Someday I hope to make it there too. 😉

      Can’t make Thursday, Sue – babysitting in London! A really good course though with two excellent leaders and only 6 of us on the course so lots of individual coaching.
