FebPhotoFest – Day 1: What Have I Agreed To?

What was I thinking? I used, back in the days of 35mm film, to be a pretty good amateur photographer – I even have the old albums to prove it. But, for various reasons, I am seriously out of practice. Also, I am unused to working with DSLRs. I almost feel like a beginner again.

I blame Molly. It was all her idea.

So here we are, at the beginning of the month, 27 days still to go, and my camera sits there staring at me. Almost as though it’s saying “Well, come on then, you signed up for this. Get on with it. I’m waiting.”

But my mind is almost blank. I barely know where to start. So I thought I’d start with this camera phone image of my DSLR, staring at me in that accusatory manner it has suddenly developed.

Is this how a writer feels when they stare at a blank screen, knowing they’re supposed to get creative?

Bloody bloody! My phone case is scratched over the lens!

Bloody bloody! My phone case is scratched over the lens! *stalks off to order a new one, hope it arrives in time to re-take this piccie*  UPDATE: It didn’t. UPDATED UPDATE: The new one is also scratched! Arrgh!

Things can only get better from here, can’t they?

    I have a feeling you will be adequately inspired all month – I can’t wait to see what we see through your lens!

    I hate when there is a “blank” for poses, images. UGH. Hope you find some inspiration and look forward to your future photos 🙂
    PS: My “Beloved” so misses my pentex 35mm. He hates new touch screen/diggie cameras. lol

    Oh my this made me giggle. Yes it is all my fault, I will happily take the blame for inspiring you take on the camera and make it your bitch 😉
