How have you been?
I am tired. I was unemployed for two months when I came here to Perth and I have to admit getting used to doing nothing was so easy. I enjoyed sleeping in and having time to cook, watch TV, explore the new neighbourhood and all.
This week I have started my new job at a recruitment agency and love it to bits already! It's just so hard to change my sleeping pattern again. I'm really tired every day and first have to find a certain groove and daily routine again. Bear with me, the blogging and taking pictures routine will be back soon and until then you will have to stand my whinges about my lack of sleep.

Speaking of photo taking for the blog:
I know I shouldn't criticise my own pics, especially not when I still upload them despite the criticism, BUT seriously what the hell is wrong with my camera?!
I admit my photos here have never been professional (I'm still a DSLR noob after all these years) but they used to look clearer, sharper and better some months ago.
Not sure if that really is the case but I think my camera does "that" (whatever it is) since I came to Australia. I fear it maybe got a tiny bit broken or at least damaged somehow while it was in my hand luggage. Or the settings were changed or whatever. I don't know...
All I know is that my photos have a much poorer quality than before. I have already played around with the settings but couldn't achieve better results.
Look at the pics above and how grainy they are. I can only show you these two because all the other ones from this shoot looked awful quality-wise.
Does any of you clever DSLR people have any idea what could be wrong?
I have a Canon Eos 1000D with the (crappy) EF-S 18-55mm lens.
My boyfriend says my lens looks scratched, but that does not make the whole image grainy, does it?
I was thinking maybe it's the different light here in Australia (much more sunlight) and I just haven't found the right settingsfor the new environment yet.
What do you think? Do you have some advice or helpful links maybe?
Happy Thursday everyone!
