Hello, I'm new here! I signed up quite awhile ago, I think but lost the internet after that and then got it back. I was getting the newsletters from the forum, always meaning to check it out and eventually did!
Just a quick bit about me (I tend to ramble!) I'm Jessica, or Jess. 16 (don't let me age put you off, I'm very mature ) and live in England. I am currently studing National Diploma in Photography at college and strive to become a photographer after I leave! I love takeing pictures of any animal! Also landscapes, still lifes, just whatever takes my fancy

Anyway, onto some of my animal pictures
This is my friends dog Gypsy. We had a huge dog walk on the beach and this came out totally unintentional. She just kind of wandered into the shot!

My chinchilla, Jack. He's a evil little thing but does have a pretty cute side

My cat Aero, this image isn't as crisp as I'd like it, but I still love it!

And this is my past dog Apollo. I got him at the age of 8, off the RSPCA. He had a very agressive tumour in his throat, and wasn't supposed to live over a month. We had him for a fabulous 9 months, before he became too ill to carry on living and the decision was made to have him put to sleep. That was in August and he left such a huge hole in our hearts, he was the perfect dog!

I think thats enough rambling from me I'll post some of my dog images in another thread!

Hey Jessica,

I already welcomed you in another thread - but welcome again! My favorite of these shots are the 1st and 3rd. On another note, I know that the education system in the UK is a bit different from that in the US - so when did you start and when do you finish?

Hello James, thanks for the welcome!
I started college the start of this school year, so September, straight after I finished compulsery education. And I finish this course next year, which can enable me to go straight to university or I can go and find a job somewhere!

Hi Jessica,

Thanks for the info. Let me ask you a silly question - College is one year prior to going to University? Is that standard? I know that the educational systems in the US are different then the UK, but I had assumed that the terms were the same. LOL, I guess I was wrong. :P

College is usually two years. It depends on the length of your course really. My course is two years long but it really differs!
