London Olympic Games

August 17, 2012

The London Olympics marks, or marked, the first time the Olympics have come to our rough vicinity. With a hop skip and a jump we could make it to London. Taking 5 hours from door to door by train, you really can’t get much better. As luck would have it I have parents who are interested in the Olympics and are willing to put up with me and my sibling for a week as well as extended family who let us into their house. Anyway we took the train bumped around Belgium and France before going under the channel and got to London, yay.
Before going I was more or less ignorant of all things Olympic, I knew some of the athletes, was vaguely aware of the sports we would be watching and knew there was some deal with several countries having houses.

Australia

Around the same time last year my family and i made a trip to the east coast of Australia. Whilst this wasn’t my first trip to Australia it was my first trip where we spent a bit more time in the nature as opposed to focusing on friends. It had also been about 6 months since i had received my DSLR and thus was the first time i would be able to use it to photograph an environment completely different to that of Holland.  Before heading to Australia we made a stop over in Singapore for a few days to get reacquainted with where i was born. In Singapore is also where i bought my first lens that didn’t come with the Camera. A macro lens, the Nikon 105mm f2.8. At the time i knew allot less than i thought i did when it came to macro photography. Or well in fact photography as a whole.
