Cambridge Coffee'n Sketch

Last month saw the first Cambridge creatives' meet happen at Clowns café for the first time. The original idea was to get those of us who work from home a good reason to put on some decent clothes, leave the house and go out and interact with other humans at least once a week but of course, anyone is welcome! :)

The meets are on Wednesdays, from 2-6pm at Clowns Café in King Street. People can drop in or leave when they feel like it, it's quite informal. :)

For updates on the meets, see the Cambridge Coffee´n Sketch Facebook page.

Sidetracking... That photo was taken with my new DSLR which was broken in at today's meet. It's a Nikon D3100, fitted with a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. It's a marvellous little piece of technology! I'm loving being able to take pictures with short focus and play around with the light settings.

Oh sweet! So you got the camera :) Hadn't even crossed my mind when I saw these how crisp they were. What's the weight like?

The camera body is about 500g and the lens is about 400g so in total it weighs about a kilo. It was probably a good thing that I didn't go with the heavier D90. This is not too bad but it already feels quite weighty, especially when shooting with one hand. :)
