Christmas for 2012 is done. We all had a great day and enjoyed ourselves. It was very relaxing, though the puzzle still isn’t complete, it was harder than we thought it would be. I was very lucky to be given a new 27 inch monitor to do my images on and my mum gave me that Camera bag from Tamrac that I wanted, more on that later.
It has been a very busy time I feel as though all I have done is Christmas images for you. I have only one image today. There is nothing Christmassy about it. Time to move on.
This is the first image I have processed with my new monitor. It was so nice to see it so big. Though the resolution isn’t fantastic yet, there seems to be a problem getting the laptop and the monitor to work together. It was so great to see the image so much bigger and to work on it like that. I am going to have to learn to control the pen with my Wacom Tablet a lot more, I kept going all over the place.
This image is one of the ones I took when I went to the Manchester Unity Building. My invitation included being able to take images of some of the indoor areas, and who could resist the Boardroom.
The table has a massive piece of glass on it and it is very thick. I thought it had probably been put there recently to protect the table, but it has been there for as long at the table has been. Karleen told me that it was imported and at the time it was imported it was the largest piece of glass to ever have been imported to Australia. That is pretty amazing.
I love the boardroom, I like how majestic it is. It is like it was stuck in time. If you look on the Manchester Unity Building website you can see some old images that were taken in the boardroom.
My new bag from Tamrac is wonderful, though I haven’t tried it out yet. I am going back into the city tomorrow so will take it and see what it is like. This is the bag I got.
Mine is all black, and if you want to see details on the bag go here. The camera sits in the bottom and you can put your stuff in the top half. Great idea. I would like to thank C.R. Kennedy once again for helping me to get my bag. C.R. Kennedy are the Australian Distributors for the bags, and if you would like to find one in another country then go to Tamrac for details.
I am looking forward to try it out tomorrow.
