The Short Hairs
Published on Thursday, June 14, 2012 by

Day 14 of the writing challenge brings us the subject, “The Short Hairs.”

You may remember the 30-day photo challenge, in which I participated despite the fact that I didn’t have a camera?  So what do I do the day before I join the blog WRITING challenge?  Purchase a camera.

Highly researched for three months, my son’s friend found this modest camera to be the best for just under $300.

By the end of these three months, he said he could tell you every model and feature of every camera in this price range.  Reviews for this camera, the Fujifilm Finepix HS 20 EXR, were consistently the best overall.

Graduation was DAYS away.  And there would be no photographers at graduation!

Bottom line?  Come to Papa!  Or Mama. You know… ME!

It will take months for me to learn how to use this thing.  I have never seen so many features.  Furthermore, I have yet to learn about all the manual settings and what they can do.  I’ll get there.  The fun will be in the experimentation!

In the meantime, I finally have a camera that will do exactly what I want it to do.  And what is that?  Why, show the short hairs, of course!

    Awwwwwwww….what awesome photos!

    And congratulations on being a camera owner.

    I have a Fujifilm and I love it!
    I don’t want it to break…..ever.  LOL  But I do have a spare in case it does–which it better not.
    Now, keep in mind I’ve had the thing a number of years and STILL don’t bother with the manual settings.
    I’ve read the bazillion page book.
    I just discovered that you can change the color saturation last year……now if I can just remember how to do it…LOL

    Point, shoot!
    Look at the results YOU got!  🙂

    Katherine, what faaaaaaaaabulous photos!

    Honestly to god, they look like a professional took them! You GO, girl!

    Congrats on your new camera! And thanks for sharing what it is because in the fall I want to upgrade my point and shoot to a more manual camera. So I’ll definitely check the Fujifilm out!


  • Great photos!! Now you are all ready for the next photo challenge!!

  • Fabulous shots.  Wow, they jump right out at you.

    Have a terrific day.  🙂

  • Congratulations on getting a camera.  I love the short hairs in your post.  I think a lot of us are getting back to nature with this one.  You’ll have fun and be snapping pictures of everything.  Trust me, the will come in handy.

  • So precious!

  • Congrats on the new camera (I’m a Canon guy, myself!) Have fun learning it and really learn it all — it will make for photography to be so much more fun!  😀

  • Great collection of short hairs!  Your daughter seems to have some talent there, too! That really is a great pic. Congrats on the camera (just keep it away from fish lips).  😉

  • Lovely photos!  I went so many years without my SLR that I had to re-learn when I got my Canon.  I’ve no doubt you will have fun learning and experimenting 🙂

  • Those are great shots! Congratulations on the new camera. I don’t know how much you have to learn – based on the pictures above, I’d say you’re doing just fine. 

  • Cat photos? I approve 🙂

    And wow, more and more I have got to get a proper camera. I mean, the cat’s pretty photogenic, but I’ve reached the limit on my camera phone.

  • Ruger is sooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love the pics!!
