Midweek writer’s block remedy?  How about a lot of photos?  It was too pleasant a winter morning to not sneak-off for a few minutes after the air-shift, and do some much needed monkeying around with the new camera Santa got me for Christmas.  I’m one of those who found setting a vcr too daunting a task, but I aim to figure this puppy out beyond the “quick-start” settings.   Perhaps I’ve grown more patient since the days of videocassettes.  Regardless, it may take awhile, since there are plenty of buttons on it that perform multiple functions, depending on- best as I can guess-the angle at which my head is tilted while trying to access that particular function.  I’ll soldier on.  Fortunately the digital camera technology is so good today that it does a lot of the thinking for you, even compensating a bit for shaky hands and poor vision.  Helluva lot quicker to slide a card in a slot than load that roll of 35mm film too, and without a darkroom of your own, you’d have to go to the photo-lab and wait for processing.  I guess in truth, it’s a camera that does just about everything for you except tell you what to point and shoot at.  Hope you like these images from here at 98 Rocks and the neighborhood.
