I bet you couldn't wait

to finally see my zoo pictures, hee hee. I know, once you have seen one, you have seen them all. For me it was a chance to practice my new skills (if you want to call it that). It is frustrating me to no end. I still can't wrap my brain around this stuff, I will have to reread the shutter speed lesson, combining them into manual is just beyond frustrating. I have taken some pics today, but I have no clue what I was even doing. Anyway, I know you can't wait, so here are some pics (not too many, don't worry)

That baby elephant was just 2 days old the day we went there, of course it didn't move at all while we were there. That and the monkey picture were shot through filthy, yucky looking glass, I am surprised you can actually see anything.

Yesterday I finished my next set of Cancun pages for the book. Here they are

Hey! Those zoo pics are really great! How big is a 2 day old elephant? Can't wait to see you scrap these pics. Love the Cancun LO's. I love your style---just seem to put all those finishing touches that just make the LO--you are so good with embellies.

Could you email me how you did "credits here" I tried to do it on my blog and just could not figure it out. I gave up.

BTW--I was going to buy an SLR and decided I did not have the patience nor the time to learn photography. I bought a super duper point and shoot instead. It is so big compared to my little point and shoot---I need to make myself use it.

Anke your photos look great! Hold on and keep trying with the manual, you have been doing a great job so far with shutter speed and aperture.

So nice to learn a little about you, Anke! Thanks for all your nice comments on my blog, too! =) I don't think they let designers on the CT at DD, though--even though I'm not a *real* designer *lol* Keep going with your photography--those zoo pictures are so much fun!

Anke the photos are lovely. Keep at the manual as it pays off in the end- you end up taking photos of what you want and feel more in control of your photos.

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
