I often get given money for birthdays or Christmas which I put aside until there's something I really want to buy with it. I'm always very careful what I spend it on, so it can sometimes be years before it actually gets spent, by which time, more money has been added to it.
I had accumulated quite a bit of money this way, and after reading blogs for years now, and seeing the wonderful photos which people share, I decided that I would invest the money I had saved in a new camera, not just any camera but a DSLR.
I haven't got the first clue about photography, I don't understand a thing about it, but I'd like to learn, so after reading up about different models on the market, I've treated myself with the money I'd got saved to one of the more basic models. I say basic, but I'm sure there's more features in this camera than I'll ever use.
I just hope I manage to work out how to turn it on.
