Nikon D3500 For Dummies Book

I get the title is catchy and I always learn something, but geez nothing like feeling stupid 🙂 I’d guess over half the book applies to all photography, not just the Nikon D3500 operation. I did visit Nikon’s own website (Japan) to watch a video, where I learned I’ve been pronouncing it wrong. It’s “knee-con instead of nigh-con” and some even say “Nick-on”.  Seems there are lots of post about how you’re supposed to say Nikon.  Bet they don’t care how you say it as long as you buy their brand.

If you are not a photographer… skip this one. You’ll likely be bored. Continue reading

The last book I’m reading this year is the first in a series by Randy Alcorn

is Deadline by Randy Alcorn published in 2006. I reserved a copy of Nikon D3500 For Dummies by Julie Adair King from our library, but it took a long time before it was available and then came in right during Christmas. I doubt I’ll get started on it until 2020. I think I’ll keep an eye out for it or David Busch’s Nikon D3500 Guide to Digital SLR Photography by David D. Busch on ebay for a used copy after I take the time to go thru the manual. Hate guessing where you change settings at!

Merry Christmas

Christmas-2019

I appreciate our military troops that are away from their families and I am aware that this isn’t always the merriest time of year for everyone and some years are harder than others. We kind of skipped a lot of the Christmas traditions last year. No tree, no letter, not much other than our nativity set and seeing family. My heart just wasn’t in it after losing Trinity so unexpectedly. It hit me pretty hard. I know Christmas is about Jesus, and He is in our hearts and minds year-round. Continue reading

I saw a photo in Our State magazine of a river bend of the French Broad River.
I wanted to photograph it.
5 hours and probably 5 “u” shaped bends being found on GPS, we found the bend.
It’s on private property and no one called me back. Continue reading
