After the success of Death By Frozen Tundra, I’ve come to the conclusion that people like photos.
This does not bode well because generally speaking if a photo appears on my site it’s because someone who loves me has taken it. As a rule aside from images taken from the internet, the photos are either captured by Gordy or my Dad. On occasion I do take photos but they have a habit of being out of focus, poorly framed, or part of my hand.
But it’s a new year. And all of humanity is caught up in making resolutions. And I realized I don’t have any. So I’m starting up a new feature on the Great Unwashed- it’s called Indistinguishable Mondays.
Basically I will take a photo. And then post it. The idea is that my camera skills will improve. This is highly unlikely given how bad they are. It’s a known fact with my family. Once on vacation my ninety year old grandmother and I were on sitting, waiting for my Dad to come around with the car and a nearby family asked if I would mind taking their photo.
Although the spritely young person normally is the obvious choice for any task over an elderly person resting on a bench, when I sat down afterwards, my grandmother turned to me and said “You should have told them that you can’t take photos dear.”
These are from a wedding I recently attended
If only the task was to make every subject look like a Dementor from Harry Potter, with black holes for eyes and a fuzzy look around the edges, I’d probably be crowned king of the photographers.
Actually, I quite like the third image. It’s all a matter of opinion, I guess. From the looks of things, you know exactly which moment to snap, but low light is not your friend. In low lighting, unless you use a flash, your pictures will be blurry. Blame it on the machine. BTW, I love your Monday theme.
Thanks I enjoy my Monday theme too! Whether those around me will appreciate the pictures I will take, remains to be seen.
Loved the dementor comment sweetie!
What? You won’t go by “Dad”?
