andahiveofsilverybees.blogspot.com was a challenge, cast by my tech saavy children, sure that the technology would baffle dear OLD mom. It was so they could critique and help me improve my photography skills. It has turned out to be all that and much more!
I have indeed improved my photography skills. I am never without my Sony Cybershot (although sometimes I am without a card in the camera-grrrr), I often have the Pentax. I take pictures every single day of something. Sometimes mundane, sometimes silly, sometimes profound, sometimes just something that caught my eye. I can't draw a straight line with a ruler, and my portaits are stick figures, but with the camera, I have found an art form to practice.
I write better, edit myself better, and best of all, I have made the acquaintance of blogfriends all over the country. Awesome, clever, caring, talented people I would never have gotten to know otherwise.
