Gray Is Okay. But Sunny Is Better

April 26, 2011

Good morning, and yes, it's still wet and gray here.  The weatherman keeps promising us some sun and warmer temperatures, and I sure hope he means it this time.  After a while, the gray wet stuff gets to be a bit  depressing.

Yesterday, Tootsie and I got to do a couple of errands, but not all of them.  So  today we will get back out and try to finish.  The most important thing, of course, was to pick up her medicine and we did get that done.

I purchased a few filters for my lens, and they came yesterday.  I especially needed a polarizing filter.  These are great for taking photos of the sky, and things that have a shine or glare on them, like windows or water.  I already have filters, but they don't fit this lens.  Every lens has a different mm size, so you need a set of filters for each lens.

I've been looking to see if the local school offers any adult night classes in photography, but so far no luck.   Our high school doesn't seem to have any classes at night for adults or anyone else.  I guess next I will see if anyone at the senior center is into photography.  It would be so much more fun to have other folks around that share the same interests. 

I am not used to being on my own all the time.   It takes a bit of getting used to.  For so many years, I had my kids at home, and by the time the last one was an adult, I was married again.  In later years, I always had my hubby and my brother around and one by one they too had to leave for a different journey.  I am so thankful that I still have my Tootsie with me. 

I'm thinking that maybe it's time to spread my wings and check out the senior center.  My friend says that they play Bingo there, and it's been a long time since I've been able to go to a Bingo game.  Hmmmmm, worth thinking about!

Today, I have a couple more photos of my "Friday's Birdies" to share.  As you know, my "Friday's Birdies" are photos that I take on Fridays at work.  Of course, I work, but I also take photos every chance I get.  And these two little cuties were just too adorable to pass up.

As promished, I have another freebie for you.  It's a cheery QP that says "Spring Is Here!"  I hope you ccan use it.

Well, I've finished my coffee and done most of my morning blog hopping, so now it's time to get dressed and get busy with today's errands.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantastic day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Edna, you might want to search our local community colleges for photography courses. I found a course @ Massasoit - Canton Campus - Fall Session ARTG242 it is "Digital Photography I - with Photoshop". There is also a Digital Photography II. Haven't taken the time to check out others....Quincy Community, maybe Curry ??? Hope this is helpful, Donna

Hi Edna,

Why not give it a try at the senior centre? You can always go there to take a look, and may be you can meet a few nice people, with the same interests. Who knows, may be there will be one between them that's even nice enough to meet outside the centre and to go out with sometimes on a photoshoot?
Today is shopping day for me, but first have to make my blogspot.
Have a great day

I wish you luck finding a group to learn with, it really is the best way. My camera club is a great source of information and our technical college always has a class going. You may want to ask at the photo store, sometimes they have classes or know of them.
