Rory (middle one) turns 7 on Tuesday! Where does the time go? We took him and a few of his friends to a Indoor Trampoline Park in Barnstaple on Friday where they had a fun afternoon of bouncing, followed by a McDonald's. I was hoping they might go for the pizza option for tea but unfortunately not! I think reading Fast Food Nation when I was at Uni put me off for life so I can't say I really enjoyed it (I had a Garlic Mayo Chicken Wrap) - Rory and his friends did though so that's all that matters.
On a more blog related note my new camera lens turned up on Saturday, so in between raking up a mountain of leaves in the garden I managed to squeeze in a bit of photography. It's a 50mm Canon Prime lens and it's going to make a huge difference to me in winter with the poor light. The Brownie picture below was taken at 4pm with no extra artificial light so it will increase my photo taking time considerably (much needed when I only really have weekends to photograph food for the blog). Next on the to buy list is a Lowel Ego Light so I can shoot at night.....but it's a tad on the pricey side. Better start saving.
