Well it has finally arrived, my new computer, a Lenovo E320. It is black, matte and "oh so cool". Equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM it flies through my photo editing and general computing tasks.
It has a spill resistant keyboard, sturdy chasis and very littlle flex when resting your palms and typing. It has a few little quirks, such as the positioning of the Fn key and offset keyboard but nothing I can't live with.
All in all this is an excellent piece of equipment at a hard to beat price especially if you use a coupon to purchase one.
To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.
