Last night we had a relatively late one, down at the local beach club. I can’t imagine more perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. The water was a sensational 22 degrees, the kids found other kids to swim, run around in the sand and just generally goof off with.

2008 just didn’t kick off with a positive “bang”, starting with losing an Aunty (Mama Julie) then having a break in half way through January. Now that nearly everything has been replaced, I feel that I can start the year now, with more than my quota of bad karma out of the way. By the way, if you don’t have home contents insurance… I’d recommend you arrange it asap. It certainly takes some of the sting out of the pain.

So with the new and ever so slightly improved digital SLR, one of my creative passions is being release again (Hoo freakin’ ray!). At the beach club yesterday, I caught the magic hour and a few snaps of Noah and Gab, my good friend Fabian’s 5 year old son.

Pentax K100DHaving my digital SLR stolen nearly 2 weeks ago, makes me feel like a part of me just is not around. The replacement camera is the K100D which is just about to be superseded (Pictured left). It is a more current version of the camera that got stolen so that is some consolation.

Until the new camera arrives, I go through life watching the world go by, and thinking, “Gee, that would make a great shot….”.

So it’s been a rough three days so far. Wednesday afternoon, I could feel my body telling something. In its own way, it was telling me that something was about to go horribly wrong.

That evening, my temperature was rising. By the morning, it hit 39.5 degrees C (103F). Pain was coming from my head, eyes, stomach, legs and skin! Its now Sunday evening and I’m feeling sub human, and thats progress.

That’s what brings me here, now updating WordPress. This slow recovery is kind of like a new start. Though I started this account two years ago, I have been pretty much AWOL since. But now a couple of years the wiser I really think this is my new CMS “For the dummies”. I thought, before I delve into frantic catchup mode for my work, I’ll do something that I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Hello WordPress (Goodbye Blogger?).

Let’s hope that this is the start of a very beautiful blog. Then again, I’ll be posting my headshots in every now and then, so there’s a challenge.
