Three occasions in a row, I went out with my camera and the 400mm lens taking photos. I probably took more than 200 photos each time, but when I got home and looked at them on the computer screen, they were all blurry and I had to delete them all.
I got so cranky!!
I swore and told him that we had to return the stupid lens because it wasn't working properly!
So he tried it with and without the tripod and had the same problem.
Then he wondered if it was the filter on the lens and tried to remove it. It was stuck fast and we both tried to unscrew it without luck.
After about twenty minutes, Adoring Husband walked into the lounge room and had successfully removed the lens filter.
He cleaned the lens AND the lens filter and tried it again.
So the lens and filter obviously has so much crap on them, that the camera was focussing on THAT instead of the subject that I wanted to photograph!
Adoring Husband seems to find his secret drawer of common sense when I can't find my usually abundant supply! Thank goodness for that!
We picked up Kiwi Gal from the airport today and on the way home, we stopped at Toogoom and had lunch at Goodies restaurant on the water.
Kiwi Gal and I shared a bottle of bubbly and the food was good. It was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon.
Psychotic Dogs were very happy to see her and have been getting lots of cuddles since she walked in the door.
Late this afternoon, Adoring Husband and I rushed down to the river for what looked like being a fabulous sunset.
Unfortunately it fizzled out to nothing.
I took an incredibly under-exposed photo which captured the red sun beautifully, but that's all it captured.
Maybe next time :o)
Photographically speaking, it was a good start to the day, but a lousy finish.
