watchcaddyIf money is no issue, what is your next lens purchase?
I'd get the 18-200mm Nikon zoom lens. I know I could get silly going for the *really* expensive lenses if cost weren't an issue at all but that one is expensive as well and I really want it. It's great to have that flexibility without having to put on new lenses etc. especially if you're on holiday or taking photos in the street.CococatWhat other animals have you owned?
Two budgies who I got when I was 9 then one died when I was 18 and the other when I was 21, it was really hard to loose them like with most childhood pets I guess. Then I had a rabbit for a few months but I didn't know how to care properly for him so we ended up giving him to a farm we knew where they had a huge hutch and lots of rabbits as pets. I've also kept first goldfish and then tropical fish. Have a tank with 3 female bettas and 5 cories now. I did try to rescue a dog just before I decided to get a cat. It was the wrong dog and I ended up taking him back to the shelter 2 days later.Have you owned dogs, if so, what breed(s) or mixes, sex, color, etc.
Steve the Dog he was a lurcher, i.e a greyhound mix. He looked like a slightly coarser greyhound and a bit fluffier than greyhounds as well but was very much a sight hound. Black with a white star on his chest and white toes.
I had always wanted a dog and I was living where it could work to have a dog. I worked full time but I had a flatmate that didn't so people would be in etc. I wanted a dog more than the flatmate though. Anyway we went to the shelter, I was hoping to get an adult greyhound or lurcher because I love sight hounds and I know they're actually usually quite good pets but often overlooked. I used to know a Borzoi that I loved, anyway. The shelter brought out Steve and raved about him and we ended up taking him home. Turned out he had horrendous seperation anxiety and howled unless he could see us, was anti-housetrained (as in he'd keep it in while outside and then pee and poo as soon as we got back inside) and he didn't know how to play with humans, he'd want to play fight like he'd do with dogs and he bit me three times in the 2 days we had him. Not deep bites, it was play but a bite is a bite and greyhounds are big dogs so basically with all that together it was just too much. I'd been around dogs lots and lots before but never had my own dog and for a first time dog owner to deal with all that, too much. I hope he got the sort of home he needs. Where he'll have other dogs to play with and experienced owners.
Anyway a short time after that me and flatmate sort of fell out and I moved away into a flat that allowed cats (the old flat didn't allow cats but allowed dogs) and got Nikita.What has been your best experience as far as traveling, your favorite places and countries? I see you have traveled a lot.
So many things have been absolutely briliant.. hmmm I love Landmannalaugar in Iceland that's a gorgeous place.http://www.mbl.is/svipmyndir/skjamyn...-2_800x600.jpghttp://www.mbl.is/svipmyndir/skjamyn...ar_800x600.jpg
Mont St. Michel in France is awesomehttp://images.google.co.uk/images?q=...mages&ct=title
Paris is great and so alive, Vienna used to be the captial of an Empire and it shows. I also really enjoyed New York while I was there.Where do you want to travel that you haven't already?
I want to go to Australia and Japan at some point. Oh and something I know I'll do soon. I've not been to Italy yet. I need to go there.I know it stays pretty cold there, is it common place for people to have "outside" pets?
It's not that cold, really, and it stays above freezing most of the time but no outdoor only pets are not common at all. Indoor/outdoor pets are though. Most cats are indoor/outdoor here for example.Bonnie1965If you do make it to the US someday, where would you like to visit?
I've already visited New York, I want to go there again because two of very good friends of mine live there. I also have some friends down in Texas so I'd like to hop down there too. I haven't really thought it out properly though.If you could have a photo shoot with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? (with you as the photographer)
I'd have a photo shoot with "Lonesome George" the turtle that's the last of his species because then I'd get to go to the Galapagos islands and could take lots and lots of other photos of the wildlife there What is your favorite fruit and vegetable?
Peaches and just your plain ol' potato I think.What do you like about living in Scotland?
It's just a 2 hour flight back to Iceland, the weather is better than back home. Edinburgh is a very nice city to live in. I don't need a car. It's safe and the people are friendly. It's easy to travel around, basically a nice place to be based in I think.What is your idea of a perfect romantic evening?
I'm not very romantic and overly "romantic" gestures etc. tend to make me uncomfortable and cringe so really the most romantic evening I enjoy wouldn't be very romantic at all but all about being happy and comfortable together and enjoying each others companyHave you been to university? If so, what did you study?
I got a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and a Masters degree in Design and Digital Media. Working now although I might go back at some point and get a Phd.
