Give the boy a toy, and he becomes impossible. If that toy is a camera, watch out. Anything and everything is fair game. In preparation for our safari, said boy did indeed purchase said toy, and it was on! First, we had to picture the back yard. Oh look, the water feature. Let's take 35 pictures of that (including a 3-D attempt!). Then, of course, there was the wide-angle picture(s) of the perennial garden and a plethora of photos of flowers--close up and personal. Next, there was the comparison of a similar picture from close up and with the zoom. Of course, at this point in time the internal memory of the camera was filled (seems as how said boy hadn't put in a memory card) so we had to do it all over again. Off to the zoo to see if we could capture wild animals. Okay, not so wild. The tiger pictures were amazing. The monkeys? Not so much. GREAT pictures of the wire fence, but poor pictures of the animals. LOTS to learn. None-the-less, there were pictures, and pictures were meant to be shared. Facebook! Let everyone see you have a new toy! And I have discovered that my friends on Facebook are very polite. They didn't stone me for putting attempts for them to see. Friends are like that. Today, it's into the wilds of South Dakota with friends for a picnic and a hike through the Palisades, followed by an evening of Church Ladies, volume two, presented by Prairie Rep Theatre. Lots of chances for flowers. Lots of chances for zooming. Maybe a portrait or two. I'm excited. And I will share!!!! Finally, picture this--you are loved!
