My name is David Bennett. I have been photographing for several years and this blog is where I write about photograpy – but I wander into other subjects as well.
Audrey The Guinea Pig
Here is a photograph of Audrey the guinea pig sitting in an upturned fez on a coffee table.
I remember taking this photograph. My wife Tamara and I were in our living room, and as we moved away from the coffee table, Audrey got pretty freaked out and gave the most heart-rending screech.
We rushed back and comforted her and told her she was OK and that everything was OK. After that, she was happy to pose for the rest of the photos.
I recall most of the photographs I take, and I think that is because of something that I have found in life – that we notice a lot and remember a lot about the things we love.
My Blogging Story
This the first blog I started after I had been using Google’s Blogger platform for a few months. I thought WordPress was much better so I switched to it in January 2007.
Once I felt comfortable with using the hosted WordPress.com system I was eager to try a self-hosted site using WordPress.org – and I learned a lot from doing that.
I wrote an article about how to set up your first self-hosted WordPress site.
I wrote it with the benefit of hindsight, when I realised that there were some basic questions that had been floating around in my mind the first few times I set up a site.
A lot of my photographs are on the subscription ecard service at Quillcards.
Along with my wife, I also write about travel, photography, and the environment on The Quillcards Blog.
And we publish a range of our greeting card at Pelican Cards.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog and please do comment – I like it when people comment.
