These photos might not look particularly special to you but they are to me. The reason for this is that these are the last photos of the New Forest I’ll be taking with my trusty FujiFilm XT1. 

Oh the irony that I only discover and use panoramic mode the last time  I take it into the forest…

My new Nikon D4S arrives when I return, it’s lenses are already here and so post-Iceland I’ll be selling the Fuji.

This will either sound horrifically over-emotional or totally understandable depending on how you roll camera-wise – but well, we’ve been through a lot together. The emotions of slums in Africa, the heat of Rhodes, the balmy summer afternoon bordering the Swiss mountains, happy family moments, mad festival times, my first paid photography work, parties, events and quite times in the forest.  We have a history, it’s hard to explain. I wish I could keep it with me forever in many ways and yet I know that next weekend when I’m driving to Yorkshire to spend the weekend here (thanks to Canopy & Stars) with Jen, Sarah, Gemma, Emma, Cerys, Elizabeth and Katie it’ll be at the back of my mind and playing with the new Nikon at the forefront.

  1. I know them feels… I’m getting ready to change my camera and it’s going to be hard. I love my camera, but it’s time for a change. Hold onto all those captured memories, and look forward to all the new ones with your new camera x

  2. these are absolutely gorgeous and i so know how you feel. i know that you will make just as many wonderful memories and take just as many wonderful pictures with your new nikon though. xx

  3. Hello, I am new to following your Blog and I love this post. I recently let go of my Mamiya, because I haven’t had the time to use and enjoy it, so I had to let it go, hoping it will go to a better home with someone who can appreciate it for what it produces and has the time, that I do not. I hope that you are enjoying your new camera. I am getting a 50mm lens I also let go of, back, because I miss it too much right now.
