  • First time selling gear on ebay

    Been an ebay member for years but never sold anything on there until now. I won a Canon M5 on this site in the prize draw, the adaptor that came with it allowed me to use my old 90-300mm zoom lens on it for some bird photography. Ahhh, just like the...

  • WHat I have been up to lately!

    You may be wondering, or not, why I am not as active on here as I used to be, one simple answer, I am having too much fun to go online much, or even do photography for that matter! I am devoting a lot of time currently by volunteering at a local cha...
