I will be brief, as I have to leave for work in approximately 7 minutes. My dad graciously ordered me a new tripod after a piece of my old one literally snapped in half. Though I loved my old tripod, parts of it were held together by duct tape and it couldn't hold a camera vertically. As a result, I was much more limited in my ability to get full body shots in a small enclosed backyard. Blame it on the fact that I love my 50 mm fixed lens, or that I'm still scared to take my tripod out in public. Either way, the problem has been fixed by a shiny, new tripod!
Now that I can take vertical shots, I decided to venture into a different corner of my backyard. Isn't the ivy beautiful? The last time my dad was here, I'm pretty sure he pointed out some poison ivy in that corner. I'm hoping I didn't accidentally step in it. (I can't tell if I'm actually feeling itchy or if it's psychosomatic!)
Folks, if you could see the state of my half torn up yard (thanks landlady for being cheap and not finishing it), you'd understand a bit more about my hesitancy to take photos daily. The large patch of land right in front of my door is no longer covered in bricks. No, it's just plain dirt that has started sprouting weeds. Oh, it rains a lot here, so it often turns to mud. It is NOT ideal for those of us who wear heels. Oy.
Special thanks to my dad for taking an interest in my photography hobby. I promise, now that I have a working tripod, I'll try to pay more attention to camera setting so my photos will look less ghostlike!
