You'd think someone who blogs would really enjoy taking pictures. I don't.
I just find taking pictures tedious and frustrating. But, I've been experimenting in hopes of getting better.
I'm starting to make displays out of things I already have around the house. Take this old statue of Mary, for example. She makes a great display piece for my old rosaries.
And I'm trying to get better close-ups.
And trying to get different perspectives.
Viewing something through a zoom gives me a whole new appreciation for the subject being photographed.
It also helps when you reach 43 years old and your eyes can't focus on anything within a foot of your face!
So I trudge on, relying more on my camera than my eyes!
And when I look at these simple old rosaries, I see a beauty there that I hadn't seen with the naked eye. I get a glimpse as to why people actually enjoy taking pictures. I'm just not there yet!
