Now that my mission was complete, I could finally really start getting some action out of my camera.
At that is when we received the news that my brother had got a music scholarship to secondary school. Good news for me, because it could only mean one thing! PIZZA EXPRESS!
Yes, it appears to be a family tradition that, whenever there is anything remotely worth celebrating, we take an outing to the place where they create the gods of all pizzas :D.
But on this day it meant even more than that. Not only could I enjoy devouring a margherita pizza, but my boots would receive their first outing! Hurray again!
However, by the time my excitement had died down and the pizza had been digested and my parents had stopped going on about buying a new TV, there were only 15 minutes left of sunlight.
Having found the tripod (and the self timer on my camera) a felt I could not let the opportunity pass me by.
But, seeing as the lighting was all wrong by now, I decided I'd just try out some things, starting with mirrors.
Have you ever watched a film where the character looks directly into the mirror and wondered how come you can't see the camera?
Well, whilst I'd love to take pictures like that, I realised I was not that skilled. So instead I decided to just see what I could achieve using the mirror.
Here are the pityful results...(please excuse the crap composition, bluriness and unphotogenicness).
Next Mission: Learn how to edit photos.
Yay, photo time ♥
