6 Signs You’ve Just Got a Gopro

Gopro’s popularity doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. With Christmas wiping the shelves clean, Gopros are hard to come by in store.

So when I saw that the local PC World had a single Gopro Hero 3 in stock, I jumped at the chance!

There’s just one slight problem.

At the present moment I happen to be living in the suburbs, I don’t have any adventurous hobbies and the closest I get to being underwater is when I have a bath.

With Gopro specific activities ruled out, I had to scramble some way of testing it out.

If you’re in a similar situation then I bet you can relate to these.

6 Signs You’ve Just Got a Gopro (and are dying to use it…).

1- You  desperately seek sunsets

2- You make the most of the wi-fi. Look! No hands!

3- You jump around a lot and photograph it

4- You clutch at straws when taking underwater snaps

5- Pretty much all your initial photos have your finger in them

6-You consider getting a hobby

 Because recording yourself running up and down the stairs just doesn’t cut it.

Regardless of all these bloopers, I can’t wait to start using my Gopro as it was intended. Perhaps in a couple of months I can post pictures of me surfing perfect waves or a selfie on top of Everest? You never know…

Have you got a Gopro? Taken any shots more imaginative than mine? Let me know in the comments below or via my social media links. Inspire me!
