Home safe! - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Home safe!
We got back from the boating expedition around 6:20 PM or so. Roho and I both had a great time even though we didn't actually get to go sailing until 3:15 or so (We were supposed to leave the harbor around 1:20, and ended up waiting an hour and a half for the boat's co-owner to show up). Despite the delay things went smoothly when the rest of the party arrived and once we actually hit the water we had a chance to unwind. For me it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience to be back out on the water. I took around 150 pictures of the city skyline, the boat's owner, the owner's friend, Roho, myself, other boats.... anything that caught my eye was fair game for the camera. Unfortunately I'm sure that despite the multitude of pictures I attempted to take there were probably only six of them that turned out decent. That fact, folks, that little bit right there is why I have a digital camera. I know that I suck at photography, and with a digital camera I can take a few good photographs amid hundreds of bad ones and not lose my shirt in processing fees.

Tomorrow after errands I will skim through the compact flash card, clean, crop, correct as necessary and post the good images. I hope a few of the skyline turned out

Now it's off to BDs!

Clothe me in any fashion

Yay for digital cameras...sounds fun. What kind do you have? I've been trying to get recommendations to buy my own sometime soon.

I have a Samsung Digimax 210, which I don't believe Samsung manufactures anymore. It's a 2.10 megapixel camera that takes Compact Flash cards. I'm not particularly fond of it because I'm not a point-and-shoot person, I'm too used to the level of flexibility that my old film camera (a Canon AE-1 Programmable) gives me with regards to focus and exposure times. This camera serves its purpose, has some really great glass... but the optics just aren't where I want them to be. Usually the pictures come out somewhat grainy, or they just look "out of focus." I'm frustrated by the "shutter speed" as well (how long it takes to capture an image), and the shutter lag.

It's not a bad camera, it's just not a very good one either.
