I treated myself to a little present yesterday. I have been admiring 'it' for awhile. I had even done some research so 'it' wasn't just an impulse buy. Plus my son just got married on Saturday so I am suffering from some odd emotions and nothing cheers me up more than a little gift.
'It' is not glittery or sparkly but I have been having fun since the purchase. I have also been mildly frustrated but I realize that there is a learning curve involved with 'it'. I am still in total amateur mode and would probably benefit from a class to help me better understand 'it'. Are you scratching your head, wondering what in the world I could have bought for myself? Sorry. Didn't mean to perplex you. I bought Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 so I can do more with my pictures. I love my pictures and am truly a 'wannabe' photographer.
I successfully downloaded the program onto my computer - that was the easy part. Now I am figuring out all of the jargon. I am nervous about just pushing icon buttons in fear of losing my pictures. I am amazed by the technology especially when I think back a few years to my old Polaroid camera which I thought was magical.
I have great respect for the photography I have seen on the many blogs which I read. I am totally self-taught and striving to improve. One photographer/author whose work I truly appreciate is David McMahon. I always fiind myself wanting to touch his photographs. I love the shininess and the clarity. I want my colors to pop out that way his do.
So I am taking a deep breath as I now proudly present to you my first 'What in the World? Wednesday photo. What in the world is it? Let me know what you think then check back on Friday when I reveal the truth. Enjoy.
