Thanks to Hootin' Annie, this week's Fun Monday assignment was mainly photographic in nature: take 30 giant steps away from your computer and take a picture of what you see. Then take 15 baby steps back, look in any direction and take a picture of what you see. I suppose I could have written descriptions, but you know what they say about pictures.
Although simple on the surface, I found this a toughie as I am photographically challenged and my only option was to use Peter's fancy camera, which is about 200x more camera than I'd ever need. (I also had to go through the ignominy of having him transfer and resize the photos for me, during which he told me I really had to take one of his workshops because my pictures were terrible. OK, maybe he didn't say terrible, maybe he only said "out of focus," but I know he was thinking more than that.)
I was using my laptop at the kitchen table when I realised that I'd better do the assignment quickly or it would be too dark. The back door was open, so my 30 giant steps easily took me out the door and around the side of the house, where I took this picture:
During my 15 baby steps backwards, Toby was dancing around me with his Kong, which he dropped so that it predictably hit one of my feet. (I don't know how his aim is always so consistently good.) When I stopped, I told him to sit and he did, fully expecting me to throw his Kong. Instead, I took his picture:
Thanks for stopping by for Fun Monday. If you have a nice, little, compact, easy-to-use, light-weight, and not very expensive digital camera, please let me know about it in a comment. I think I really need a camera of my own.
