Tuesday 8 November 2011: How not to take decent pictures...
620/365: ... by Sarah Horrigan, aged 37* and a quarter...
1. Get out decent camera
2. Select appropriate lens
3. Make sure battery is charged
4. Head out
5. See picture you want to take
6. Compose shot
7. Make sure settings are right
8. Press shutter
9. Remember you left your memory card in the card reader
10. At home
Grrrrrr!! So I took this shot with my 'shove in a pocket' camera and it'll have to do.
Have also discovered that if I'm going to get out of the office and go for a walk at lunchtime, I need to wear shoes that aren't going to kill my feet. I now have a lovely collection of sore and blistered where my feet used to be. *wince*
Mind you, escaping the florescent-lit dinge of the office was good... and even though it was doing that horribly fine drizzly rain virtually all day, I'm weird and rather like getting out an' about when it's like that. There's something soft about it. The weather's not especially cold and the rain isn't freezing. But it's enough to keep most people from getting out there which means the streets are quieter and the Botanical Gardens where I went at lunchtime was peaceful and rather lovely.
Have nothing else to say today. Had the happy feeling of finishing work when I finished work, rather than having a load more to do when I got home and although we've got a late shopping delivery coming - all is well with the world.
PS Memory card now back in camera
PPS What's the betting I forget the whole camera tomorrow instead?!
* only noticed later on that I'd said I was 38. I'm 37 for goodness sake!!!! I'm ageing as we speak! AAAAARGH!!!
