Embracing the challenge

Well, as most of you know, I had a recent accident with my camera and my beloved friend is gone. This has forced me to once again turn to my point and shoot for the time being until I can save up the money to get another (upgraded) camera. In any case, I decided to embrace the challenge of going back to my PNS and took a few shots with it today. I was surprised to see that it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. I managed to doctor them up some in Photoshop. My Kodak EasyShare (6.1 MP...yes, I said 6.1) actually has some manual functions on it. I can adjust the aperture, shutter speed and ISO (100, 200 and 400 only). The aperture surprisingly goes down to 2.8 and I can adjust the Exp. Comp. in Priority mode. Who knew??? It was interesting to see so many options that I didn't know existed. In any case, here they are. BTW, I shot the B&W in B&W mode on the camera...again, who knew???

On another note, I wanted to say thank you to all of you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time in losing my sister-in-law. Tina was truly loved and will be truly missed.

I love the '80s!!!

In the past week or so, I have been astonished to see how much of "my" decade has been coming particular, the clothing. Within the last week, I have seen ALL of the following out and about town. Makes me wonder why I ever got rid of any of my '80s stuff. Now if we could just get MTV to actually show videos again, that would be fantastic!!!
