Leith yet again, this time at twilight

Leith yet again, this time at twilight
Originally uploaded by Gunnella.

Started a photography course on Monday, well actually a camera course to be more precise, at the local adult education centre. Looking forward to learning how to make proper use of the capabilities of my fancy smanzy camera ;-D Already after only lesson I´m at a complete loss, but hopefully after doing my homework tomorrow phrases like depth of field, aperture and a number of others will actually make sense to me ;-)
I´ve decided to do a close up focus project using my ikea lamp (and the kids´) a white sheet and marbles.
Went out today searching for marbles here in Edinburgh, wouldn´t have believed how difficult it was to find any kind of variety. Can´t you picture it? There I was walking on this blustery day between places, doing my best drenched disheveled wanna be bedraggled rocker cat impression going up to the shop attendants saying “Errm Excuse me, I´ve lost my marbles, have you got any” cue smile :-D
Anyways promice to share the homework resaults with you, whether you like it or not :-D

Doing a camera course will only improve what you already have, a great eye for a shot :)

I may've missed it - did you said what camera you were using now?

Leith is the area of Edinburgh in which I live. I however live closer to the centre.

David : Thank you :-D I think I´ve mentioned this before, but flattery will get you everywhere ;-) The camera I´m using is my barnd new (since Nov) Olympus E-500 :-D *happy dance*
