Me and my Nikon

If you’re a WordPress developer you may have come across John O’Nolan, who works on GUI elements for WordPress. However, he describes himself more fully as “a designer, entrepreneur, speaker, author, photographer”.

Anyway, he recently made a big decision about his life. He’s young, unattached and talented and loves travelling. So, he decided to sell pretty much everything he owns and just head o

ff into the world, camera and laptop in his backpack. I’m sure he’ll do well.

Meantime, he’s been selling many of his more precious items via Twitter auctions. His final one, last Friday, was his beloved Nikon D40. A few years old but in very good condition. And, I’m happy to say, I won the auction and have the camera in my possession now. And it is lovely – my first SLR too.

So, expect the quality of my photography to slowly improve πŸ˜‰

And I wish John all the best of luck for the future – but I’m sure he doesn’t need it.

      Of course. Meantime, my Magic Lantern Guide turned up today so I have lots of reading to do!

      All the best with your travels!
