Picture A Day Challenge for 12/31/07

Well, today's the last day. I wanted to get today's picture in early because I have so much stuff to do today before going to play music for New Year's Eve. Recently, on 123-Scrap, the question of the day was "What is your most favorite Christmas present?" My answer was all my new camera gear. I got a master flash, a monopod, and an electronic picture frame to view the photos. Well, it's hard to take a picture of your camera with your camera, so I chose to post my second most favorite gift.

Daddy got me an i-pod nano. We've been inseperable. This will make riding the bus even better because I can listen to music OR catch up on movies that I don't normally have time to see. He was very generous and gave my brother one, too. His is gray, though. I did use my new flash to get this photo because the on-board flash was just too harsh and I kept getting hotspots. This was the last of about 15 shots using various angles on the flash. I discovered that putting the diffuser on the flash and angling it away from the i-pod gave me the best picture. I'm loving learning about using the flash and the camera.

I hope you've enjoyed this month-long journey of photography challenge as much as I have. Some days have been pretty tough to figure out what to take a picture of, but then December has Christmas, so there were a LOT of photo ops available for the rest of the time. I'm glad we weren't doing this in August! You can only take so many pictures of the San Antonio River in the summer before you can't figure out what day it is.

I wish for each of you a happy and prosperous New Year. Be safe, don't drink and drive, and most of all, have fun!

Happy New Year! I found the link to your blog at 123 Scrap! I too live in San Antonio. Loved looking at your photos for the month. We used to live in New Braunfels - it is amazing how much it has changed in just the 6 years since we moved.
