No. 6


6. Take a Photography Class

This is perhaps the least satisfying thing I have ever accomplished off the catch-all list. Monday nights here I spent at photography class. It wasn't what I expected, and it was a hard class to go to. Frustrating things about this class included:


a. Constant, predictable hunger during class
b. My computer crashed halfway through the semester and I lost all my work from the first half. (Not permanently; they're stuck on the hard-drive right now)
c. I tried to drop it and take Pilates instead. Denied by higher powers.
d. My replacement computer got "held for clearance (i.e. $$) in customs and took a month longer getting here than planned, so I had nowhere to edit my pictures
e. One memory card mysteriously deleted itself
f. Extreme navigation and timing skills required to print pictures at appropriate times
g. Accumulating fees

Beyond that, I did learn my way around the menus of my camera as well as some very basic photoshop methods. And this weekend my teacher is taking us rock climbing by Palm Beach! Above is my favorite picture from my portfolio, for which I did not even use the auto setting!

    She bidged! She budged! She blogged! Nice photo. As you go through life, you'll find that the List of Things you set out to do doesn't always satisfy like you expected (i.e. #6), and that some unexpected things that would have never made the List can be the most satisfying, fulfilling, and pleasurable. -Mom
