Pictures

All images are mine unless otherwise stated.  Generally they’re mine, but occasionally one will be nabbed from Google with “educational purposes” in mind.  🙂

I’m no photographer, apart from in the sense of the word that I enjoy taking pictures… and I take a lot.  And I really mean a lot.  If something catches my eye I’ll take a whole fucking shedload of pics… and the whole monkeys in a room with typewriters comes to mind – generally a good one or two appears.

Unless an image is quite a few years old (I then had an Olympus, but cannot remember the model) my pics are either taken with:

My Nikon D3000 – curtesy of The Telegraph (I would never have been able to afford a camera like this, so am forever grateful of having won it in a competition held by them).  I don’t have any extra lenses, apart from the one that came with the camera.  It’s a kick-ass camera, and I love using it, and love the results.  It is however huge and bulky… and that’s where my other camera comes in:

My Samsung PL201 – a handy little camera to stick in a pocket or handbag.  I have a massive hatred for Samsung (damn you shitty company for making a telly that broke right after the one year warranty had ended – and damn you for making a shitty mobile that broke right after the one year warranty had ended!), but cannot fault this little camera.  Cheap and cheerful, and it takes great images.

  1. Good morning. Could you tell me a little more about your bad experiences with your Samsung PL201. I just purchased a Samsung plasma TV. I guess I believed the advert hype about it being the best in the country. Keep in touch!

    • Sadly I cannot fault my wee camera. Yes, sadly. 🙂 It actually irks me that the little camera is working so well, as I detest Samsung. 😀

      We got a 50″ Samsung HD flat screen TV 4 years ago. Right after we’d had it for a year, a line appeared about 2 inches from the left side. We contact the shop that sold it to us, but as the one year warranty was just up they refused to help. So I contacted Samsung – sure a telly’s not supposed to do this after only a year! They just did a generic e-mail telling me to piss off. I contacted the CEO of Samsung, telling him about his shitty product and shitty customer service, he just forwarded my e-mail to the same shitty customer srvice who once more told me to piss off! Now fuming, I again conacted the CEO telling him about the shitty telly, the shitty customer service, and the shitty treatment from him – and the bastard managed to forward my e-mail to the same shitty customer service again!!!

      Now our lines are approximately 2″ in with – changing from colours to black, to the occasionally grey.

      We also had a Samsung smart phone, which again broke right after a year. *sigh*

      I do wish you the best of luck with your telly… hopefully they’ve improved their products… and if not, atleast their customer service. 😀
