300th post


Today is Hyde DP's 300th post. I thought I'd show you my computer. Nestled under the monitor is my trusty Fuji S602Z camera with which the majority of the pictures have been taken.

Shortly after taking what was our 200th post picture, I dropped the camera.

The damage was actually fairly superficial and my local camera shop was able to repair it for a reasonable charge. Meanwhile I picked up a little Olympus F130 at a bargain price.

Whilst not producing pictures of the same quality as the Fuji, it is perfectly aquedate for most purposes. It slips in the pocket and is more discreet. Whilst I now use it quite a bit and it took this photo, I'll be using the Fuji for my best pictures and whenever we go away on holiday again.

One of the joys of doing Hyde DP is getting to know other bloggers. The shoe mug was part of a gift parcel I received from Conny who runs Saarbr├╝cken DP.

Around fifty DP blogs are participating in a theme post today. As I felt this month's subject, Something that annoys, inappropriate for my 300th post, I'm running the theme on my personal blog, Ackworth born, gone West, which is where you'll find links to the other theme participants.

Some of these cameras will take lots of punishment but i hope I don't drop mine anytime soon.
Here is a link to that Fuji camera
