Year 8! where does the time go! I added another camera to my collection, this time going mirrorless and my first full frame camera. I traded in my D7500 and Dx lenses, and purchased a Nikon Z7ii, and some Z lenses. I've kept my D500 and big birding lenses specifically for birding.

Time for an update. Year 7! Year 6 or 2021, was a strange year of lockdowns and no overseas travel. I suspect 2022, will be similar. I passed my photography diploma, but missed out on a graduation ceremony due to Covid. Love to see everyone's photos on this site. It's a real source of inspiration.

Year 6, and I still really enjoy this site. I feel I haven't had as much time to comment or take in part in as many challenges lately. I will try to rectify this, and blame my diploma studies for that. This will be my last year of study, and hope to qualify by the end of the year. In March of 2020 I ended up buying a Nikon D500, as my D7500 had to go in for repair. Due to the length of time it was going to be away, and it was in the middle of diploma assignments I felt I couldn't manage without. Very generous and thoughtful husband.

Year 4! Where did those other 3 years go to? 3 different cameras in those 3 years, but I'm sticking to my latest in year 4. I really enjoy this site, and the friendships that seem to occur. I appreciate and read every comment I receive, and apologise if I don't acknowledge them all. I try to comment as much as time allows.

I have now lived in New Zealand for 23 years, but was born in Yorkshire in the UK. Hence my tag Yorkshirekiwi. I love to see photographs of places I've visited, especially in the UK. I also love anything with fur or feathers.
