BUTLER: "You don't remember how to use your camera, do you?"
"That bad, huh?" I answer, crestfallen but not surprised. It takes awhile for the eyes to remember how to look and I was also shooting quickly so I wouldn't lose sight of Daisy who was running around the trail behind our house.
In fact, I paid so little attention to the camera settings -- except to put it on aperature priority (thanks, Rebecca). But I did not bother to notice that it was still set on bracketing from a month ago so that 1/3 of the shots were overexposed and 1/3 were underexposed.
BAGMAN: "I've got an old Kodak Instamatic you can use. It's in a box somewhere."
I turn on the computer and look yesterday's attempts at shooting shallow depth of field and, after a moment of private greiving, delete them all. Time to turn to the archive and pull out some stuff from the good old days when I had some idea of what I was doing.
And that's about it.
BAGMAN: "What a wimpy blog, Dude! You haven't even bothered to insult me one time!."
BUTLER: "And you have not even taken the time to do something cute with your header picture."
"Give me a break, guys. At least I showed up and I wanted to save some time to look at what my friends have done with their blogs."
BUTLER: "You are going to be envious."
