With the beautiful weather this weekend I went out wandering downtown Atlanta on Saturday. I started out by Georgia Tech (had no clue it was Game Day!) and a visit to Ultrecht's which is an art supply store. I saw online that they had a portfolio/backpack. I'm having the hardest time finding something comfortable to carry my drawing pads and supplies back and forth from car to class. I'm most comfortable with a backpack but I wasn't sure if this would be big enough for the drawing board and the pad so I wanted to see it in person before I shelled out $65.
There is another art supply store I wanted to check out, too, in Buckhead so I figured I would take a leisurely drive around...stop where I could and take pictures. If you've seen my photography before you know there are a few things I'm obsessed with in architecture -- doors and rooflines. With the sky being sooo blue and almost cloudless and the modern angles of many of our Atlanta skyline, I had a plethora of things to photograph. And boy did I snap a lot of pictures! oh and buy art supplies!
Sunday morning, I took the girls out to our backyard which is filled with many trees and plants and I took a boatload of pictures of them running and playing. We were outside a good 45 minutes and I was playing with my new telephoto lens (25mm-350mm). Because I wanted to capture the action of them running after the ball or wrestling, I was using the action mode on the camera which would take five pictures with less than a second between frames. I probably shot about 100 more frames before we quit and went into the house.
All this time, I never checked the pictures until I had a few minutes to myself. I turned the camera on and went into the photo view mode. To my surprise and disappointment, there were no pictures! I had neglected to put the memory card back in after I downloaded the last set of photos. BOOO!
Sometimes in you zest to do something, you forget the fundamentals. Always make sure you have a memory card in your camera!
