Nikon Z7ii - My First 3000 Shots

It has taken me a lot longer than anticipated but I've finally found the time to put together the  3000 shots with the Z7ii video . Thanks once again for the comments people left last time, it has been great to hear from you 🙂 So as the title says, I've now been through about 3000 shots with this new camera. This video isn't a review of the camera (there are plenty about) but I've been through some quick points at the start before I get into what I've been up to recently. I'm not really a fan of all the gear videos on YouTube and that's not what I want to produce, so you can skip over all that **if you're not bothered about the camera stuff. Usually I'd like to plan a trip or two away with a new camera body, but for the last 3-4 months I've not been able to go anywhere so you'll just have to deal. I'm not going to go over photos I've shown before, but if you're interested there's a couple of  other videos  available to watch

Weekend read: A Whole Life (Robert Seethaler)

My partner and I decided to have a "blind book date" this weekend. The idea being that you visit a bookshop with somebody, and pick out a book for the other that they've never read before. It should also preferably be something they wouldn't usually pick out; expanding horizons and all that. Don't show it to them before you buy it so they can't weasel out of it!

The book chosen for me on this occasion was something I certainly would not have ordinarily picked for myself, and I'm very glad I read it. A cliche perhaps, but stepping outside of my usual choices really paid off this time.

Warning: bring your tissues.

A Whole Life

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quite a tragic book for me in places. A man with such potential and a gentle temperament should have had better cards dealt to him. Certainly tugs at the heartstrings. He's happy with his lot though, and that's life really.

This is one introvert's way to battle through some of the great hardships that can affect us. It makes us value more and more the relationships we have with our family and friends, and why it's important to keep them strong.

Not one to read if you're a tad melancholy to begin with. But excellent nonetheless.

For my partner I chose H.G Wells' classic sci-fi The Invisible Man. Something I've been meaning to read myself but have not got around to!

Bonus points for having a good chat about the books afterwards. I will hopefully report back when we're both finished!
