We seem to have a Plague of Ladybirds in the new house. Within seconds of opening a window they’re everywhere. There are a lot of infestations that could be worse.
- They’re Cute
- They’re Red
- They’re Pretty
- They Eat Aphids (lots of Aphids – up to 5000 in an average Ladybird lifetime)
- They have white feet (who knew?)

A friend of mine gave me this a few weeks ago. It belonged to her Aunt who sadly died in January. It’s obviously been very well cared for, it’s in excellent condition, complete with UV filter, lens cap, case and a funky little tripod. the Zenit (EM) was my very first SLR, prior to that I’d only ever had Polaroids and a very old Box Brownie that belonged to my Father to spark my interest in photography.
My parents bought me a Zenit EM so I could study photography at School. I’ve still got my first Zenit and although it hasn’t been looked after anywhere near as well as this one it does still work and it gets a roll loaded up every once in a while. Looking forward to trying this one out very soon. Thank you Ruth.
It’s not the best composition but it is 5.30pm and there is still blue in the sky and that’s enough to make me a whole world of happier. Here’s looking forward to longer days and the first signs of Spring.
As part of my up coming mid-life crisis I am back on a mission to get fit again. Joined the gym in December and it feels good to see (and feel) myself making progress, running a little longer, a little faster and feeling better every time I go.
