First Baby Steps Taken With Great Trepidation!
Well, here goes! I finally got the cable for my camera and USB port. These are my first attempts ("attempts") being the operative word). I think I should repeat this phrase again until you have memorised it!
The photos of Remy (black and white male cat) and Shama (his tabby sister) were the first photos I attempted to take the day my camera arrived. I hadn't, at that stage, read anything about how to use the camera. I just pointed, shot and hoped for the best. I didn't get the 'best', but at least I managed to get the camera working.
The photo of me, talking with my hands, as usual, was taken by a friend when I was visiting he and his wife. It's my Italian influences coming out! David, the husband, is quite an expert at all thing computerised and I wanted him point me in a few right directions. So from this disclosure, you know who the writer of all these ramblings is! I'm the one in the striped top, glasses perched on my nose, looking like a professor of nothing! Glasses are an evil necessity in the art of reading...and talking with my hands.
All I have to do now is become an expert photographer! Oh! Dear! This is a challenge I'm not sure I'm up for, but I will certainly give it a good try. I'll be fumbling around, cursing, throwing my hands in the air in desperate frustration. The air in and around my cabin will turn deep blue-black often, of that I am certain! First, I have to find out how to initially organise the sizing of the photos as these ones are up, around and over 3MBs! They took me a year to upload! Slight exaggeration, but I think you get the picture...pun most definitely intended.
I guess this is one problem in living alone, along with having to put the garbage bin out...trying to teach myself the ins and outs of this camera, with little or no guidance. It is a terrific camera...now I have the duty to serve it well and become a terrific photographer. Please don't hold your breaths...this will take some time.
