I recently purchased a digital camera. I had wanted one for awhile but never really had the money for it. This year my in-laws gave me some money for my birthday and I added a bit more and bought my first digital camera. It was not love at first sight. I couldn't get the hang of it. I couldn't down load the pictures to my computer and it ate batteries. But things got better, I bought rechargable batteries, and I realized I hadn't properly downloaded the program to my computer.
WOW. Now whole new possabilites opened up for me. I could actually make this thing work. BUT then suddenly I was stumped. What was I going to photogragh????
I am not in any way a professional photographer. I am a stay at home mom. My husband would prefer I not post a lot of pictures of our kids on- line because of predators. I said I wouldn't but that left me with a lack of things to post to gather. HUMMMMMM. I really wanted to be more of a part of things here, but I was stumped.
Then at my daughters bus stop I was hit by inspiration. I live in a beautiful area. Mountains, rivers, beautiful rocks, wild flowers, and trees. These I could photograph!!! I had forgotten how beautiful the place I live really is. It took a new camera and gather to make me apprecitate it all over again.
Thanks to eveyone here on Gather.
