Because I didn't want him to have to drive all over town, I suggested we go to our local "greasy spoon." On our way into the restaurant, I noticed the full moon, and decided to see if I could capture it with my new camera. The first thing I noticed was how the moon was cut in half from this angle.
I decided to zoom in a bit, but there was something wrong with
the color of the sky.
Since I'm still learning all the whistles and bells on this camera, I finally decided on the dawn/dusk setting. Much better.
Now if I could just learn to hold the camera still while I shoot,
and take it off auto focus in order to set the shutter speed,
I might actually get a decent photo before the birds were out of camera range.
I was surprised by how few photos I actually took, with this one being my final one. Although it would have been stunning if I'd managed to capture the birds using the moon as a silhouette, I was still quite proud of what I had accomplished. I kept telling people I was better at taking photos than my previous camera showed, but this was finally proof I have a camera I can be proud of, and one I can get decent photos with.
Once inside, I set the camera on "food." I probably should not have, because the lighting in the restaurant was horrible.
But this is a T(ea) post, and here is my contribution for the week, a glass of ice water with a twist of lemon.
I didn't notice until I was taking these photos off my camera that the juke box at our table was out of order. Possibly, it was because the restaurant was so busy and Scott and I were deep in conversation.
Scott ordered a ONE POUND hamburger, which came with fries and various "fixins'" hidden by the fries.
I ordered a cheese omelet, but it was cold. I also didn't get any toast with my order, although I felt lucky to even get the ranch dressing I asked for to accompany my hash browns. Although the food was disappointing for once (it's usually quite good, but I seldom go at a peak hour, either), the conversation was excellent.
