Lo and Behold! My cell phone camera has a 10 second timer! Things will never be the same here! Fortunately I have the weekend to practice and figure out a way to position and steady my phone. Meanwhile, I am posting
my very first attempt.
Obviously, I didn't dress for the occasion. I surprised mySELF!
my main blog. Thought I'd show it here. The chair and pillows were purchased at garage sales or thrift stores, as were a few of the items on the bookshelf.
Thanks to all of you who made suggestions re. my photography! I'm eager to see how I can improve the pictures on this blog. I'm pretty proud about the ones I take of our grandchildren, etc. You can get a view of them on my "family" blog listed in the sidebar of THIS one... If I want "hardcopy" of any of them, I download them and either print them off on our home printer or have them done at Walgreens or Meijers.
We do have an inexpensive digital camera but I never seem to have it with me when I need it - AND the batteries seem to always need charging. The phone is a workable option for me. I DO need to be more intentional and remember to change the settings (which I forgot to do when I went inside for the book/chair photo).
