Back in 1994 I started my A-Level in Photography. I loved that course, although it was old school. Light boxes, processing film, enlargers and created prints. It was brilliant.Back then was the 1st time I ever saw a digital camera, I didn’t even really understand what it was but I did get a chance to use an early version of Photoshop.
Last month I decided to get back into it, so I purchased a new Canon 550D and I must say it is awesome.
I went on holiday in the UK last week so I took at with me and got snapping. I thought I would share some of my favourite photos on my blog. Hopefully, you will enjoy them.

In about 45 minutes I will be off to the Peak District with my fiancé. Yesterday I got a text from the in-laws…there is no WiFi or 3G!
Now, I know what your thinking. Stop moaning about it and get on with it. Its not a big deal. This is, of course, true, However, I am expecting some fairly important emails this week so I do worry.
It got me thinking, do I rely on the internet that much? I do, it turns out.
Lets see how I get on. If I am honest, I am almost looking forward to being offline for 5 days. Over the week I will go looking for WiFi so I can check my email and Facebook and send some tweets, but not as a matter of urgency.
All in all though, I am going to relax and enjoy disconnecting from the internet for a while. Although, I plan to write 5 schemes of work over the week so perhaps it won’t be that relaxing.
So folks, its almost the summer holidays. Can’t wait? Neither can I.
The summer holidays are a great opportunity to keep fit. David Palmer has been kind enough to put a weekly workout together for you all.
We have also created a video to guide you through the workout.
It would be amazing if you could pass this on to your students too. They will have 6 weeks off and no doubt they will get bored. Lets kill that boredom and make sure our young people are keeping fit over the holidays.
