Over the years I have looked at lovely photographs and wished that I, too, could record such lovely things as birds and rivers and blooms and snow and yes, everything. But, alas, my camera’s never did work that way and I had read all the instructions verbatim…no lovely photos, no oohs and aahs just a moment in time captured so that I would have a record, if not so perfect.
Being brave in March, I set off to purchase another camera; one that would make those marvelous photographs like everyone else had on the Weekly Photo Challenge.
Staples was my Big Box Store of Choice. Therefore, I went in and found the camera person (after informing the store manager that I did not think he knew anything at all about cameras). We discussed my expertise and the reason for wanting a camera. He kinda smiled.
He showed me lots of cameras with important sounding names and big long noses with twisty thingys on them. I nodded and smiled and asked dumb questions. How do you know where to set and I would point to a part of the camera with a no name, at least for me.
After about an hour he finally pointed out this cute little digital camera that was on sale for $46.00 and said “I think you would be happy with this one. We only have two left and all you have to do is to point and shoot. I am going to buy the last one for my 12 year old son.”
Sounded reasonable to me and it was a digital camera as well.
Now I am sure I can enter the Weekly Photo Challenge with my new little camera.
I shall show you my first video and then a couple of award-winning photos!
Sorry about the video…don’t know how to insert that into post but will keep looking…would not want you to miss the very best there is in video blogging!
