Patty Goes DSLR…

I tried out a big-girl camera today… and I think I’m in love.

After our adventure  yesterday we stayed up way, way, way too late — so we had a slow day today.  It was pretty, we went poking around some of the lakes local to Isabella and then took a look at the big lake — and were home in time for a simple supper — all in all, a really nice way to spend a day.

I’ll post some photos later.. for now I’m trying to learn shutter speeds, ISOs and apertures.  Once I get a chance to really look at them, along with the histograms — I’ll see if I can explain my mistakes… sounds like I need another category, “Andy teaches Patty about cameras”… hmmm…

Along the way we ran into a forest service person — who went to college where I had (suffered) many debate tournaments… she knew the debate coach…

Tomorrow is supposed to be another beautiful day, Thursday kinda cruddy — then Friday nice again.  We have some plans to see boats come into Silver Bay, some photos to organize, I have a couple of books to read — and, there’s always the fipod to keep us company.

I can’t think of a better way to spend the week between Spring and Summer… much better than the week (three years ago) that I found out I had cancer.

PS… secret message to Mom — some random dude fishing at 18 lake says hello and that he’ll be happy to see you… no, I don’t know who he is — but he’s among the folks who didn’t think you’d be back..
