I decided to join Blipfoto because the rest of my family are, and I was beginning to feel the odd man out. 18 months in, I guess I'm as addicted as most blippers seem to be.
I started out with a handbag camera, but have since upgraded to a Canon DSLR, and my lens collection is growing.
I'm married, and we have two fantastic early teenage boys. Whenever any of them are stuck for something to blip, the fallback seems to be our two West Highland Terriers. They always seem to get more stars for being cute than anyone ever gets for a quality photo! Maybe that's where I'm going wrong ;-)
One thing than blipping has taught me is the type of photography that I enjoy. I hate the long dark evenings of winter as I much prefer being outdoors, taking picture with natural light. Monday to Friday blips are therefore much more of a challenge to me :-(
