I have a little story for you guys today, that’s bound to make you smile, me thinks
We took my friend Domi along to the stables today, and I had planned to give her the D7000 and let her shoot me riding Joli, as Marla has trouble keeping the NEX7 and 16-70/4 steady. So I made sure the battery was charged and all settings were favorable to an unknowing shooter. I gave my friend the camera, hopped on my horse, and tried to look good
Yeah, that is *obviously* not a D7000 picture. From up there I could see my friend aiming the camera at me, and looking puzzled. I slowed down Joli and strolled down to her “anything wrong” I asked. “It’s not powering on”, she said. “Never mind, I said, just put it back in the back and chill out”. She pulled her cellphone and starting taking a bunch of “horrible” shots
As you can see, there are two novelties. One, I have a new helmet. I hate riding helmets, and were I the only concerned, I wouldn’t wear one. But my husband insists that I do, and he’s totally right. Plus, I’m setting an example for my kid, who I’d strictly forbid not to wear hers
Second, Joli has new boots ! A full, four legs set. It’s white, stylish, and very easy to put on. I didn’t intend to buy one when I got in the tack store today, but once the extra cost is digested, I’m glad that I did
Once I was off the horse, I checked the D7000 to see what went wrong with it. I powered it on, half pressed the shutter, and could feel the AF purring soflty and reactively. I asked my friend how she could not feel it work ?? She said “I pushed on the red button and nothing happened !”. Holy cow, she was trying to engage the movie button !!!
AH AH AH…
IA smidge better than the crappy cell, heh ? 😉
