To those of you who read this blog and the comments that go along with it, it may look as though I rarely answer reader’s questions. The truth is that I always try to answer questions, but more often than not, I end up e-mailing the answer rather than leaving the it in the comment section. On rare occasions, I will venture back into the comment section to leave an answer, but only after I’ve realized that there’s no other way to contact the person.
I asked George if he thought I should answer some reader’s questions in a post tonight but he just looked at me as if he didn’t understand.
So I’ll just go ahead and answer a few questions that have been asked in the past couple of weeks. Let’s begin then, shall we?
“What farm did your husband work for? Was it in Maryland?”
For ten years, my husband worked at Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, Maryland. He was hired as the broodmare manager and took on the stallion manager position when it became vacant a few years afterward.
“When did you start photography as a hobby?”
I began in my early 20’s when I bought a used 35mm Nikon and with the manual, taught myself how to use it. There’s a lot more information about me on the “About Me” tab at the top of the blog. It’s not very interesting, though.
“Did you hear that? Was that a squirrel?”
George, focus. Let’s get back to the reader’s questions now.
“Do you ever press flowers?”
No, Annie, I never have but I did look it up online and it seems like it would be fun.
“Are wild roses the same as primroses? We had those in Texas growing up.”
No, I don’t think so, Jo. But I’m not an expert and had to google it. I google everything. And Wikipedia says they are not the same.
“Do you have a macro lens or do you set your camera on the macro setting?”
I have a macro lens. There are times when I set my camera to the macro setting but it’s only in an emergency (like when I don’t have my macro lens) but the photos are never ever as good as using a macro lens. My macro lens is one of the best investments I ever made.
“Do you sell your pictures?”
I have an etsy site. I’ve had some sales but let’s just say that I’m not planning on quitting my day job any time soon.
“Isn't Photoshop wonderful? Do you remember when I couldn't figure out how to open a photo in PS?!”
I remember it well, Mary. It’s become second nature to us now, like breathing out and breathing in. (Name that movie) (or Broadway musical).
“Don’t you need a masters degree to be able to use Photoshop?”
Now, that’s a huge no. If I can do it, you can. You must trust me on this.
“Do you think 'smoky' and the doc will be left on the island and everyone else will get to live happily ever-after in the flash sideways?”
I think you may be on to something there, Becky, and we’re going to find out really soon. Good heavens, what will I do when Lost ends? (Don’t answer that).
I love having all of you visit and am glad you’ve made this blog one of your regular stops. Hope you all have a great Friday and an even better weekend.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
