At the time, I was in no mood to deal with it.
I put it in my closet....where it has stayed for all this time!
I had thought about using it several times since then....
but I knew it would be too complicated.
For some reason, this week I decided to do with it what I know the person who left it to me would have wanted me to do!
To be more clear....
My Dad loved photography. He was always taking me to some scenic place to take photographs. He would go outside on purpose in the middle of a lightning storm to photograph the sky. He would pull the car over at random times to take a picture of something like a flower or a flag. I never quite understood all that.
When he died, among other things.....he left me a really heavy black bag.
Inside it was a camera, several really big lenses, a fancy flash, tons of filters...and the neatest little notebook that he used to keep notes (in his very unique handwriting) about shutter speeds and lighting and other things that I hope to one day understand.
The equipment was old and way too complicated for me to learn how to use....but, obviously someone out there can still use it...because I found a really neat little camera dealer in the city....who bought most of it from me.
And guess what I got?
A brand new camera!
I took the strap off of my Dad's old camera....and I'll be using it on mine...
with a cute little girly camera strap cover, of course!
I am thrilled and I think he'd be thrilled for me.
Now to learn how to use it!
It's alphabe-Thursday again...and today we honor the letter "I."
