No more pictures at the moment.

It has been ten days since my last post here, so I do hope my regular readers haven't given up on me! I have added quite a few items to my collection, but most of them are too big to scan for photos, so they will have to wait until I get the digital camera working. I actually retrieved it from the back of a cupboard last month, recharged the batteries, and re-read the instruction book. But I am such a sook when it comes to technology. If I can't get the hang of something quickly, I just get frustrated with it and toss it away. I just need someone to sit down with me and go through the workings, then I need to practice. I did use it a couple of times when I first got it, but I found it so complex that a lot of the photos badly out of focus, and instead of persevering, I spat the dummy. Some people never grow up...

I sympathize with your camera angst...I can never seem to get mine going properly. The pictures are always a little out of focus but I'm told this is because I don't have enough light...oh well.

Ah, technology... What a comfort to see that you're not a natural. I had assumed that you found it all a breeze, with all those blogs and photos. Hope you get the hang of it again soon.

Hi Gina, glad you posted. Technology can be intimadating. My daughter got me a 'photo shop' program for Christmas and after 2 half-hearted tries, I put it on the shelf. Your post reminded me of that....I need to try again....I guess. Oh the enthusiasm...I can hardly stand it...grin.
