For many years now I have resisted the idea of using a drone, but now I’m starting to wonder if I should give it a go.
My first thoughts were that a friend of my husband’s has one so why don’t I give his a try?
Drones have been something that I never thought I would want to try. They can be so annoying and it seemed to be a fad that everyone was getting them.
I have found it really annoying when I’ve been out and they are flying around. They sound like mozzies and that is a sound most of us hate.
So why do I want to try using one?
Kind of a good question. I think it is because I have seen some videos where they put in a little drone footage and it looks good. I don’t like the ones where it is all drone stuff, but adding a little in here and there seems like fun.
So why not try it?
That is pretty much what I’m thinking at this point. I went to Williamstown the other day to meet Tony and take a look at what the drone can do. Unfortunately, he had forgotten the SD card for it, so we just played but couldn’t record anything on it.
On the way to Altona, we stopped at his house to get the card. When we were there he was able to record what the drone was doing and seeing, I guess you could say.
It was fun playing with it and seeing what was possible. I’m sure you have realised that this week’s video has footage from that.

Socialising with Photography
One thing I wanted to talk about here is how social photography can be. I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but it is a very social thing for me. Often my only social outings all week are with people when we go out to take photos.
I spend a lot of time at home on my own. Well, my husband has been here as well, but he is working. So I am on my own a lot. Getting an opportunity to go and take photos with other people is great for me. Some weeks it is the only interaction I have with others.
I can go out on my own, but then I am spending more time on my alone. If I can talk someone into coming with me, then that is what I try to do.
What do you like to do?
Photos this week
I have some photos for you now. These are some of the ones I took while visiting Williamstown and Altona. There are some more in the video if you want to check that out. Getting a different POV
That is all for this week. I am working on a garden update but will give that in a separate post.
That’s all for this one, talk to you soon.
