kristarella.blog started as a personal blog called This and That. It’s still a personal blog, but with less random reports and whinging and more focus on my interests. They include (in approximate order of writing frequency) WordPress, photography, graphics, web design, Christianity, blogging, computers, science, television, movies, music, games.
In February 2008 This and that changed name to kristarella.blog. I felt kristarella was the name I’d been building for the last three years, where as This and that was just another example of my stellar creativity when it comes to naming things (if we’re not careful my first child will be called Baby!).

I started the photoblog, originally called The Naked Eye, when I began taking photos with my husband’s Canon IXUS 50. It was a great little camera. Good for point and shoot with a few fun options. I started to crave a bit more from my photography so I bought a Nikon D50.
Eventually I progressed to a Nikon D300s, then Nikon Df. After a terrible experience with Nikon servicing I moved to the Fujifilm X-T3.
I mostly take photos now when I travel.
