My sister and her partner were long term blippers, and I had been following their photos, and browsing other blippers for a long time.  Then my daughters bought me a nice digital camera for my birthday. 

I've had a number of cameras over the years, and never really got the full potential from them.  I was never good at spotting the opportunities for photos, except the blatantly obvious. 

So the obvious solution was to start blipping.  My partner bought me a bridge camera for my next birthday.  Now at nearly 3 years, I am addicted.  I still work part time, and not infrequently find myself stalking the house late in the evening, looking for something/anything to photograph.  And I still mainly use the camera on automatic.  But I HAVE to blip.

I promise, once I retire, I will explore the potential of using the camera on manual.
