one of the things that blogging has given me is a way to enhance my love of journaling with photos and snapshots. in fact, i am more often drawn to blogs that feature pictures of accomplished craft projects, successful recipes, babies toes, and, of course, self-portraits.
my current frustration is born of the fact that i can create beautiful photographs... in my minds eye!! unfortunately, they very rarely look *on paper* the way i wish they would. this is due to the fact that during an intrepid search for the perfect spt post last spring (lights, camera, action!), my trusty point and shoot digital Nikon Coolpix hit the dirt, er, sand. since then, i've been *making do* with a dime store variety giveaway camera and the 6 year old digital camera we keep on property at the hotel.
they. are. awful.
my beautiful images turn out fuzzy, slightly green, hazy, you name it. i have a fear that when i look back on this year, it will look like we lived the entire year in grungy aquarium!!
case in point - last night, i came out from my bedroom to this fantastic sight:
i purposefully posted the image smaller so that you will focus on the subjects, and not the blurriness. rrrggghhh!! i'm almost ready to go back to my Nikon SLR (you know, the one that uses *film*...)
of course, the camera i would love to get is out of my budget by, let's say, oh... $700.00. actually, my current budget doesn't really allow for a new camera at all right now. so please, please, for the love of blogging, keep posting those crafts and recipes and babies toes!! a girl's got to get her fix somewhere!!
