Second important thing is to have sufficient number of SIM cards so that we can call our families and dear ones.If this looks funny to you, imagine how would you... continue reading

As a present from a shop owner where I bough my camera, I got a nice tripod.By the way, if you ever manage... continue reading

I don’t usually get up early on a Sunday, or any other day if I can help it, but last Sunday was different.I had wanted to go to Weymouth Harbour, to take some photos for a long time.
