Stinking Digital Camera, I love you.

in Birds, Entertaining nonsense and profound thought

I found this in my drafts. Didn’t I already post this? Somebody run back through the last couple of months and tell me if this is a repeat. I could do it myself, but I’m busy. Thus the “Oh look, a finished blog! I’ll use that.”


I’m having a love/hate relationship with my camera. It’s a Kodak Z650 and it does what I want most of the time. I get some decent pictures. Not as good as Sue’s from 129 Twig and Vine, but Sue is exceptional.

The problem is I don’t know how to ask this camera to behave like a film camera. I want to take pictures of the moon on the snow. It’s quite beautiful outside tonight. (My leg hurts so I can’t sleep.) If I had my old film camera and some 400 speed film I could get pictures. I could put the camera on my tripod (or the window sill) open the f stop and take some really cool pictures.

I might even catch a fox or deer slipping by in the night.

And maybe my camera  could take pictures in the night – if I only knew how to ask it. But I don’t, so here’s another couple of birdhouse photos to entertain you instead.
