Woah, this my third time writing this post! Kept getting a blogger error. :(
Life has been busy. I went to a study skills course on Monday and Tuesday which was a lot of fun and really helpful. Met some nice kids too! Today I had to go to the dentist. My biggest phobia is needles, it stays with me all the time, and so you can just imagine my reaction when I found out my filling needs replacing next week. I figure I'll try to keep it out of mind until then.

Mindy, you'll be pleased to know I found my camera! My mummy put it in the kitchen cabinet for safe-keeping. Phew! It was killing me to not be able to shoot when the light outside was so beautiful. Thankfully I found it around 4 so there was still some nice light left! I shot manual again and it really did make a difference to the quality of my shots. Truly! The first one is SOOC. I'll share settings because my EXIF always gets wiped out when I convert from RAW - anyone know what is up with that? :)

I also made a tutu out of some leftover tulle that I found lying around our house. Only me (or my sister, in a rare compromising mood, to model it) so the chair had to suffice. Fun though! I really like the colour. =)

I really need to get some portraits of my sister...she has grown so much that she needs all new clothes! 12-year-old growth spurt I guess! We are lucky to be able to have such luxuries, a lot of people don't. I always try to be grateful for that, although I sometimes forget.

Lulu! I'm so glad you found your camera. Great shots, those flowers are beeeeeautiful and the tutu and clothes are great too. Your sharpness at 1.8 is awesome, I can never get that with mine. Hopefully because it's a bad copy ;)

Your colour is always so amazing, and really gives a light, fresh feel which is so nice to see. Especially on a dreary day like today. Sorry to hear about the dentist.. Imagine you're a superhero! And the song "Put your records on" by Corinne Bailey Rae always cheers me up when I'm down/worried. I've been listening to it before exams lately haha. It's sort of silly but it works.

Love you!

You have come so far Miss Lulu. I love reading your blog even though I do not always comment and you are so wise for such a young girl. I know you will grow up to do great things.
I really love your new music by the way. I love Paolo Nuntini (sp?). ;-))

Thanks Sarah. :) I love you too. I heard that song in the dentist, of all places, and really like it. The lyrics are really inspiring too.

Lulu, your blog is just amazing. You have a totally fun outlook on everything and your writing is rivalled to Shakespeare! You are as virtuous as an angel and that makes this a great read. Good luck at the dentist.

I'm so glad the camera turned up. I know how I'd feel if mine went so i can understand how you felt. Graet tutu and the model looks very cooperative! Usually my tutu models move a lot faster than that LOL

I love your new blog header! The first picture here is awesome too. Glad you found your camera. :)
I don't like going to the dentist either - I'm afraid they will want to pull out my wisdom teeth, so I'm avoiding them as much as I can these days!
