why yes, a photography course is a good idea

Un-broke my camera tonight.

Yip, I've been frantically putting new batteries in it, screwing and un-screwing the lens, checking everything over, because noooo my camera can't break right before Niagara Falls and the kids haven't touched it and I didn't break it and WHY ISN'T IT FOCUSING ON IT'S OWN and nooooooo

and then I read the directions.

And on the side of my lovely, mondo-expensive camera? Is a twee little lever with the letters AF and MF written on it. Automatic Focus and.....Manual Focus.


Guess which position it was in?

Whew! It's such a relief when something seemingly disasterous has a simple fix.

I had one of those aha moments with my dishwasher once.

In this case, reading the manual would work. No photography course necessary.
