I'm still here
I think I am beginning to learn that camera. I can't figure out why, even after a class, I am still a camera idiot. I purchased a PHD(push here dummy) camera, then another, and still another. I'm still not getting what I want on film. And that doesn't just refer to the subject matter. The format and clarity are a problem too. I'm photographing some things for ebay. I really want them to look good. I won't buy on ebay or craig's list if there isn't a pic.
By the way, I do have feet. Great large gangling size 10's. You never see them in a pic because I don't yet know how to take one with both ends in the shot. Still working on it. Before all is said and done I will probably read all of the words off the pages of the instruction book.
Today I am wearing a favorite top of mine and it is a favorite because the sleeves are long enough and it shows none of my figure. I have the requisite slinky knit pants on and with the top I have matching earrings and rings. I will begin asap to take pics of my jewelry. I have some wonderful pieces and I am proud of them. I also have several terrific bags which I'll photograph separately. The weather here is so cold today that I don't want to get out and run around. It is in the 25 degree range so I am staying home. I'm looking forward to the 40's at the end of the week, even though it is going to rain.
I have been eating a little more properly the last couple of days. My lovely daughter has lost 51 pounds with low fat dieting. I have a real problem with that. Oh, I do like a lot of the low fat foods but I need protein to keep going and then there's bacon. Bacon. And I do love bacon. So I have decided to try a new tack. I will eat bacon. And then at the same time I will eat a large serving of fat free food and some fruit. It should even out then. Christy keeps her fat below 30% and I think that is fine. It seems healthy. My downfall comes when my fat free foods are high in white flour and white sugar. Sweets. I could eat cookies, cake, and ice cream all the time. Working on that problem too.
Well, time to let the dogs out. Later.
