New year, summer, photography

Well, happy new year to everybody! I have been a bit scarce in the past couple of weeks, so I thought I was way past due for a new year’s post.

It is summer here and it is SO hot. Every summer I shake my head and grumble, “This is hotter than usual, I’m sure of it!” I don’t know if that’s true, but I live in a coastal town with a moderate climate, and any temperature above or below the narrow band of 15-25 degrees Celsius has me grumbling. In my defence, I think it has been in the 30’s a lot recently.

The poor boys have been suffering in the heat. I have been trying everything to keep them cool – cold bottles, putting out cold tiles (which I keep in the freezer between uses), a spray-bottle for spraying cool water on them, and of course I leave the back door open for whatever cool air might come in (lately it’s just been hot air coming in).

The rats have been looking like this…

Another recent development is that I got a new camera. My old one broke, so I finally got myself an SLR camera. So this post will continue to be a picture-heavy post: here are the first few pictures from the new camera.

The boys and I wish everybody a great year with lots of cuddles for the furry family members!

    An SLR makes such a difference when you’re photographing the small fuzzies 🙂
