well, i had about 20 minutes of fun and then frustration trying out a new camera…i bought it in town and it just doesn’t do what my old one did. so i will take it back and i decided to order the same one i lost…now the waiting for the mailbox to fill.
but it was a cool relief to have camera in hand…eliza had fun telling me what to take pictures of…when i told her i wanted to try taking some close up, she would get very close. my old camera could have handeled it, this one not. some of the shots captured what i wanted, though.
i remember when i was little…10? 12? mom and dad gave me a camera and i would capture all i could…my brother, mushrooms, horses in the forest preserve, men wearing skirts at the peace march, refugee babies, friends on bikes, posters of tommy howell on my bedroom wall…so thank you, mom and dad for planting the seed (and for the time and money surely spent on processing that hobby!) what kind of camera was it? a 110?
so, we wait.
