Snap, Crackle and Pop

Well after an invigorating trip to London to see the Queen...okay actually it was Golfy, but he carries a royal presence!  I was almost tempted to go for the drag queen approach, but erred caution...
Drag Queen

...anyway his wise words of wisdom which actually covered many subjects resulted in me spending my hard earned wonga on a new gadget.
Now I have been toying with this idea for years and could never quite justify it, even when Mrs Stretch gave me permission it always seemed that there was a catch and to many of my married readers you should know what I mean when what a woman says is not actually what she says!
So now I have a new Nikon D5000 with 2 lenses and flashgun and extra kit

Camera Nikon D5000 and KIT Photographic Lens. 
I have to say she has done me very proud already.  You see as well as having the wise words from Golfy, and permission from Mrs Stretch (ish), I also had the Sister-In-Laws wedding at the weekend and I was asked to be the photographer for the day.  Now this is my 2nd wedding photography booking in the last 4 months and I have another one next month.  What started out as a favour has not exactly snowballed but it has continued!  Which means I must be doing something right!  And to be honest I love it.  Yes it is nerve-racking and tiring (your legs and glute muscles really ache the next day!), and very time consuming.  Obviously it takes up the bulk of the day, but it also takes up every spare moment for weeks afterwards.  Luckily I had undisturbed time on my train trips to and fro the big smoke to do lots of editing and tweaking.
