Some Not-So-Fun Friday Photos
This morning I let Olivia watch the "Li-iea show" (translation: "Olivia show") and sprayed her hair down with some water. About ten minutes later we ended up with these adorable little braids. First braids ever! Well, first braids ever in Olivia's hair anyway. And I love her little hoodie shirt. And the bow clips on the ends of the braids! Of course I had to snap some pictures.
The first one (above) was cute, but really yellow-y and washed out. Oops! Try again.
Umm... what's going on here?
She's standing perfectly still. (Absorbed in the Olivia show.) There's plenty of natural light. The flash is off. The macro setting is on. All signs point to a decent picture. And still...
Agghh! What is going on?!
I frantically push every combination of buttons possible. Which does not require a lot of work because it's a 6 year old point and shoot that doesn't have a lot (read: any) bells and whistles.
I even tried taking some pictures outside, but in vain. The results were the same.
I couldn't even tell on the tiny camera screen that all of these pictures look like they were taken through a set of mini blinds. Bryan tried to comfort me by saying they look "vintage." Har har.
Sadly, I think the truth is that our camera has--for all intents and purposes--died on us. Boo hoo. Times ten.
I guess I'm off to look at DSLRs on Craigslist? Maybe I'll actually finally upgrade to a real camera and all my dreams will come true. Good think we're made of money.
