Started doing some more of the online photography course over the past couple of days and got to my first assignment which was to submit a photo taken in manual mode.
Tuesday was our wedding anniversary and Kat was off from Sunday till Tuesday so we decided to go to Mull for the three days. A mini break away to make the most of the time Kat had off and also a celebration of two years married!
Couple of days in the past week I have gone down to Loch Ard and have gone for a swim. Brilliant that it has been warm enough to want to do that and actually need to do that. When it is really warm temperatures don’t like to take Maia anywhere that isn’t near water just so she has somewhere to cool down and plus it is fun being around water with her. That is what life is about isn’t it, having fun when you can. That seems to more important than ever at the moment.
Sleep is something that is quite often affected by depression and actually anything to do with your mental health and your physical health to that matter as well. It also plays a huge factor in the journey to getting better again. Lack of sleep affects everything.
Had the opportunity when in Kintyre to have a BBQ on the beach for dinner and then get the chance to watch the sunset. Pretty special with some amazing views. Out of the whole week that I was down there the above photo is one of my favourite, was a snap and shoot which is what it has to be with our dog a lot of the time but it worked out well.
Talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk and talk. That is what I have to do. Improving your mental health is about talking, that is really what is going to make the difference and help.
Most of the time on my Nikon D60 I used a Tamron 18 – 200mm lens and absolutely love it however I also own a wide angle lens: Tamron 10 – 24mm.
