It's not like I'm trying to rush things, well, OK, perhaps a little, but the past month (which felt like an eternity for me since I'm not doing much) is almost over. The Fourth of July holiday is just next week. Nablopomo just sent me an e-mail saying that July's theme is food. I guess I missed the June theme memo, which had to do with home - and I was certainly at home. I can deal with food. Perhaps I can get some cool photos of food, now that I'm up to speed on my food photography tips out of the July 2008 issue of Popular Photography magazine. Maybe I can even draw food. I could even post recipes.
Speaking of photography, my husband went and purchased his own DSLR camera. Costco.com had a pretty good deal on an Olympus E-510 with two lenses. The camera is probably about 3 generations up from mine, is much lighter and has more bells and whistles than mine does. The cool thing is that the lenses that came with this camera have a wider angle than the ones I have. However, the telescopic lens of my camera has more distance range than his, so we can swap lenses as needed. One of the features the E-510 has is a way to do panoramic type photos, using a larger media card or flash drive and software that came with the camera. This feature will be useful in photos of city blocks or longer buildings, and that's an important feature for someone like my husband, who depends heavily on visuals for potential clients. Now we're both happy with our cameras, and I hope mine will no longer go missing.
