Getting a Jump on My Goal

Remember when I posted about Project 365, Part Deux?  Well, tonight I sat studying the sad little book known as the owner’s manual of our digital camera.  We bought this, our first new digital camera, several months ago and were so tickled with our purchase.  Until we figured out that it really doesn’t do much and takes crummy pictures more often than not.  (Should I dish?  Yeah, I’ll dish.  It’s a Nikon Coolpix.  Yawwwwwn.)

Willing to consider that it’s user error – and NOT the camera – producing crummy pictures, I’m trying to figure out the inner workings of this buggar.  So far I remain underwhelmed, but I’ll give it some time.  Here’s all I could squeek out from trying to use the macro mode:

8.31.09

That, after about 15 frames.

I have a feeling that with this camera, Project 365 is going to feel a lot more like Project OhmygoodnesshowmuchlongerdoIhave?.
