My Photo Hobby

Some of my hobbies include photography, a few months ago I purchased a  with the objective to learn photography in my own time and own way.

 A OLYMPUS SP-810UZ Digital Bridge Camera, My brother Lee has a media qualification and therefore was trained to be a photographer and journalisum so is well aware of the routes around a camera of this type.

Mum always enjoyed throughout her 5 years of illness coming out for a drive with me so i could take photos around Leicestershire and it was nice when she was in Hinckley community hospital to have the opportunity for her to use my camera with support and take some photos of her own. She was always proud of what i had achieved in my life and wanted me to continue my photography hobby, so sadly when she passed away on the 11th October its was my task to save for my current camera it was a shock to find however in her belongings a envelope with a note which said “Glynn’s new camera for Xmas” it seems she had been putting money aside to get me a new camera.
