Abandoned Garage

As I was shooting this there was a bad traffic jam less than a mile north of here at the Four Seasons. Less than a mile and a half to the west there was a worse traffic jam at the Beverly Hilton, both because of the Golden Globe Awards. All through this part of town there is a definite franticness with no feeling at all that this is Martin Luther King Day. And I had to go out into it twice. Once to pick up my photos for my photography class and a second time to take them to a hopefully much more competent film shop. Some, but not all, of the fault was mine. I'm having trouble with the technical aspects of transferring the photos I'm posting to a "real" photograph. Something to do with pixels, resolution and other stuff I might have to actually sit down and learn.

Digital photography is a brave new world, and even seasoned photographers are grappling with its particular challenges. I, for one, have to say that while I've converted entirely to digital photography, I have yet to really take a WOW photo with my digital camera. I've done several I like, but there just seems to be something missing. I'm sure it will be interesting for you to learn the conventions and technical challenges involved. Keep at it, though, you're amazing!
