Ok, ok, I was going to put the mountain of text books that I was reading and take a photo of them, however, I decided that I would be honest and take a photo of one (of many) of the DVD's that one watches when all it does all weekend is rain, rain and then rain some more. But woohoo, we had a couple of hours of SUN. So the tv was turned off and I went out. I went past this wonderful mural painted by the schools in the community. Can anyone guess where? Then of course the rain and the wind came back, which put a real damper on the day and so it was back home to do more 'study.'
We were asked to write about anything 'technology related' that interests us. Hands down, it would have to be my digital camera. The Uniden UDC-5M. It is small, easily portable and convenient. Gone are the days when you send away for the photos to be developed, just to find on their return that half of them were blank or some other mishap had occurred. Now it is just a matter of connecting the camera to the computer and picking and choosing
what photos I want and deleting the rest. I've also got photo shop, so I can play around with all of the photos as well. Such a huge learning curve, and a matter of learning by my mistakes and spending heaps of time on the pc. Some of the other benefits with this camera is that it has a big viewer on the back of the camera, the menu is easy to decipher and the photos are really clear and crisp, well most of the time, hehe.
You must be thinking how did I take the photos of my camera with a camera that I'm promoting...we've got three similar cameras in our whanau, so I used one of the other cameras. Finally, a good thing about having a digital camera is that I can share photos with my account on Flickr: Hikurangi's Photostream
as well as my account on Picasa Web Albums - Mz Hikurangi - hikurangi blog
I'm also hoping that one day it'll turn into a Casio 300. So cool.
