Time to dust off the old camera.

Fujifilm S5100
Well, after months of procrastinating I finally did it.  I grabbed my old camera, dusted it off and slapped new batteries in it.  I haven't used this camera in so many years, I think I am going to run through a quick how to.  I might as well use it to its full capabilities rather than just point-click.  I have a crap camera and iPhone for that kind of stuff.

I want to thank Tom and Qwerky for posting pictures that are urging me to get off my ass and do the same.  I like that they photograph around where they live.  I would too but I don't really live some place that I find entirely too interesting.  I have a few days I will be spending in Sacramento so I hope to snap some photos there.  It's nice this time of year in Sacramento and I hope to find something worth taking a picture of.  Not to mention I won't have any distractions to keep me from taking pictures in the afternoons.

I will be about 8 blocks away from Capitol Park.

I hear the park is really nice and for as many times as I have been to Sacramento I have yet to visit the Capitol Museum.  I am hoping to catch the building open during the time I am there if at least to get a look at the architecture inside the building.

The last time I bothered taking pictures of stuff was when I went to Germany.  I used 2 point-click cameras and just photographed stuff all willy-nilly.  After reading some of Tom's posts I think I need to take my time and try to get a few nice shots.   I am in no hurry while in Sacramento, the only thing that I will be up against is how much day light I have.  And even if I lose daylight, I am sure I can find some interesting night shots. 

Other than my park excursions I look forward to having dinner at two places.  The Pyramid Brewery Alehouse which I have been to before.  It's right across from a church that was being remodeled the last time I went.  I hope it's completed so I can see how it turned out.  I also want to try out the River City Brewing Company.  It am interested in trying their Kolsch and to see if they serve it in the traditional Kolsch glass.

Being a creature of habit I will continue to dine alone and try the restaurant's beer samplers.  Unlike most people, I find eating alone (drinking alone) to be quite alright in public.  I don't have to feign interest or think of things to talk about when I sit alone.
