Here's some more images from our recent camping trip.
I took so many, over 600! I had fun taking them but there's only a handful I feel I can show.
One thing I am proud of: I am teaching myself to use Photoshop and when I hit a brickwall and was unable to continue, my generous friend Marsida showed up and gave me precious advice.
I could not have progressed without her help!
Her eye is so sophisticated she helps me to see all my mistakes and is able to praise the few good things I've done.
She really spurs me to do better.
So, it's thanks to her if I have persevered and I am able to write this post.
I was so discouraged I just wanted to delete all 600 images and chuck the computer screen out the window! (Except my brother, whose computer this is, would not have appreciated the gesture...)
Anyway, here's what I think is not hurtful to the eye:a mushroom that looks like a fox's skull, a beetle (I think!) that was kind enough to pose for a few shots, some cute little mushrooms that look as if they belong in a "Smirfs" episode, the leader of our camp with a t-shirt that reads (for all the non speaking Italian people out there: "A man without a belly is like a sky without stars"), some yummy raspberries that got promptly eaten after I photographed them (talk about capturing something for ever lost!), a disgusting baby toad (sorry you amphibious loving folk but I am phobic), black ants so shiny you can see me taking the photo reflected on their beatifully bulbous jet black bodies, my little girl's gorgeous feet by the stream, and a shot of my feet enjoying the view from out tent.
Hope you like.
