Writing

Really I practice four hobbies, oil painting, photography, playing guitar and studying, the last hobby it’s for me the most important. Always I like learning every day anything.
Drawing, I started it when I was child and then five years ago I began to painting these with oil, and to learn to put colors in my drawings.
The photography always I like it, and 10 years ago finally I buy a good camera, however now it is old, because the technology advance very quickly, but if I learn to take a good photo with my old camera, this means that I could change it for a new, before not.
Now I’m trying play guitar, but like others hobbies it is very difficult to do, and I need adding problem, is that my hands and fingers are tiny, but I watched some videos where children can playing guitar.
So I think to practicing every day I can do it.
I would like to play guitar like my grandpa played it.


He told me to write about three hobbies, but really I do/have four hobbies, oil painting, photography, playing guitar and studying, the last hobby for me is the most important.  I always like learning anything every day .
Drawing, I started it when I was a child and then five years ago I began to paint with oil, and to learn to put colors in my drawings. I always used to draw with charcoal, in black and white.
For photography I always liked it, and 10 years ago finally I bought a good camera, however now it is old, because the technology advances very quickly, but if I learn to take a good photo with my old camera, this means that I could change it for a new one, after I’m ready.
Now I’m trying to play guitar, but just like others hobbies it’s very difficult to do. My hands and fingers are tiny, but I watched some videos where children can play guitar.
So I think practicing every day can help me do it.
I would like to play guitar like my grandpa played it.
