At photo camp

About six weeks ago, I found out my buddy, Terri Ranck, had signed up for an intensive one week class to learn all those mystery settings on her digital SLR camera.  Not to be left behind, I signed up, too...and now here we sit, side by side, checking our connections with the internet world one last time before this week takes off at mock speed.Ruby_2

While it's always my knitting projects I spend time planning before leaving home, this trip was different.  Being on a diet makes you obsessed with food, or at least, the possibilities of either being without it or being faced with lots of it that you shouldn't be eating.  Being out of control of one's food choices for a week can throw a wrench in the works. 

After pondering all that, I decided it was just something I couldn't control very much.  What I could control, however, was the quality of my daily java Ruby Begonia, my sweet little espresso maker, is my roommate this week.  (Some of you may know her pink sister, Francis, from the shop.)  I wanted to take a picture of the camera on top of her, to show you what the most important tools for the week are, when I realized that wasn't possible (what I refer to as a DUH moment).

Well, off to class.  I am so excited about this, and I'm hoping to have a chance to share some of it with you.  Stay tuned!

P.S.  Despite bringing three knitting projects, after orientation last evening, it appears that they are going to run our hineys from breakfast to late evening each day...oh dear.
