Over the last few months I’ve been taking pictures with my new camera. I’ve had so much fun. Talk about instant gratification!! Oh man, these digital cameras with their lcd screens are just incredible. I often feel like my 3 & 5 year old nieces when my sister takes pictures of the “let me see, mommy can I see?!”
My memory cards have 8 gigs of memory. That’s a lot of memory. I have over 600 pictures on this thing and there’s still room for more. Pictures of sunsets, pictures of my quilting room, quilts I’ve made, flowers, trees, roses blooming at odd times and the list goes on and on and on. (guess you saw that one coming right?)
Well today, I decided it was about time I get some of these things printed. I meant to get some printed a while ago, but life gets busy, my schedule gets changed and then it just doesn’t get done. Well boohoo for me. Not really.
The very helpful photo guy behind the counter asked me if I needed any help. Today, you betcha, I need help. I don’t have a clue as to what I’m doing. I mention to very helpful photo guy that I have an 8 gig memory stick and he pops it into the place where it’s supposed to go. Waiting, waiting, and nothing. We’re at the wrong place. He clears out the screen, we go to the one that will open my memory stick and voila, it works. I went through the 600 photos and selected about 59 to print. Yep, you read that right, about 10%. Many of them will go to one of the members of the Village Squares who worked so hard on the Veterans Quilt Project for Common Ground. A few I’ll keep and a few will probably go elsewhere. I can’t tell you how much fun I had. And, at the end, I got a discount because I’d ordered so many prints. Talk about a happy photographer. I get to pick them up Friday.
