Dublin, here he comes!

Wille’s going to Dublin! And actually it’s a little further away than 20km for us. After Wille graduated back in June he’s been working at my office and has also had a little bit of time off and as he’s still not sure what he wants to do in the future and is taking a leap year he’ll be going to Dublin for a month leaving September 1st. He’s enrolled in a bartending course which he hopes will help land him jobs while traveling further away (Australia possibly!) after new year. I’m so excited for him! So, if you have any Dublin tips, Wille and I are all ears! Wille LOVES Irish folk music so if you have any recommendations on where to go for that you get a gold star! We did a bit of Googling and guide book reading and found out about a place called the Cobblestone Pub but we’re not sure if that’s an Irish music tourist trap or the real deal. Anyone know? All other tips are also very welcome! Thanks guys! Sláinte! Image from here

Two Top Tips

Q: So, how do you (as in I = one person) move a piece of heavy furniture without scratching the floor? A: Brute force strength + 1 itty bitty towel that is normally used to dry off Mini and Bonus when they jump through the kitty door when it rains. You may also use pot holders or if you insist a human size towel. I’m easy going like that.   Q: How to resolve that ugly deep plunging V that annoyingly appeared between the two towel-schlepped Snows due to wonky 50+ year old floors?      A:  With the help of two broken in two ice cream sticks of course! One set at either end.   Perfect. And so are the Snows.

Camera Help Needed

  From previous comments on posts I’ve gathered that I have some professional or semi professional photographer readers. I’m sure there are plenty of you who are great amateurs too who know a thing or two about cameras. I need your help and input, please! I started using a DSLR about 4 years ago and got the amateur “entry model” Canon ESO 400D, aka Canon Rebel XTi or Canon KISS Digital X (depending on which country you’re in). My baby has served me well having used it daily all that time. Now I’m ready to pass Rebel on to Wille, who’s really excited to get him, and upgrade to a more advanced or semi professional model. But which one? I don’t know whether to upgrade one step, two or maybe even three. Cameras are expensive and I want to get good value for my hard earned cash but I also don’t want to skimp and feel the need to switch again in a couple of years time. I think I’d rather pay a little more to get the camera I can use for several years to come. So we can become buddies you know, like Rebel and I.     The two strongest contenders that I’ve narrowed it down to after doing some research are Canon 7D and Canon 5D Mark II. There’s quite a big difference in price between them with the 7D being the “cheaper” of the two. The 5D Mark II is full format though which I would love. Oh, and yes, I’m sticking to Canon, I’ve always been a Canon girl even back in the pre digital days with a T50 hanging around my neck. How do I chose? I’ll mainly use the camera for interior shots and close-ups and I want to start trying some (home) studio photography too. Also, what lenses would you recommend for what I'll use them for? I’ll definitely get a 50 mm f/1.4 but I’ll need a zoom lens too. So, all you photographers out there, professional or otherwise, I’m all ears! Thank you! Images from Canon.
