Welcome to the Family

Well, as I'm learning how to create a blog, I've also been learning how to use a digital camera.  My husband was an avid photographer, and I became interested in the hobby, though was never in his league.  But, I learned photography back in the SLR days, when you had to know about F stops and film speed and focusing.  Since Stan's death, I've been using the single-use cameras, but finally decided I needed something better than that.  Of  course, when I unpacked my camera and discovered that the instruction book was bigger than the camera, I was afraid I was in over my head.  But, fortunately, the camera seems to be pretty intuitive and user friendly. 

Well, what should I take a picture of, as I try to learn how my new camera works?  The answer was obvious, my cat Max.  We found Max at the local animal shelter, someone had moved out of town and left him behind in their vacated apartment.  So, early on we had a very difficult time ever leaving the house - Max insisted on trying to walk out the door with us, he was afraid of being left behind.  That has fortunately gotten better, but I still make sure to say when I leave, "Bye bye, Max.  Have a good day.  See you later."  He is usually delighted to see me when I get home.
