Boy, there's been a dry spell here lately as far as visual imagery goes. So here's a recent photo from my digital camera that I really enjoy:
Yes, my camera, but I wasn't the photographer. At a recent family get-together, when we were all assembled in this old 1818 tavern somewhere in western Maryland, my niece Beverly asked if she could take some pictures.
Beverly is 8. And one of the wonderful things about digital cameras (with decently sized memory cards :) is that no one is going to get hot and bothered if someone is snapping away. Well, she started at my left and worked her way around the room. We were a big group (about 20 of us), but this room wasn't that large. By the time she was done, she had taken over 30 pictures, mostly of the walls, pictures on the walls, flags in the room, and so on.
When she got back to where I was, she snapped this picture of the thermostat on the wall (and look...she's already figured out the rule of thirds :).
I got a real kick out of seeing her take this picture. So now when I look at this not exactly interesting photo, it reminds me of that good time. May have to get it framed...could be a real conversation starter!
