Cabbage

Here’s a cabbage. This one definitely had moments of looking much worse. Perhaps my ambivalent feelings towards cabbage as food were expressing themselves in the paint. My daughter told me not to give up, and I’m pretty happy with the finished painting. Now for the cole slaw.

My photography skills, for this blog and in general, could use some improvement. I’ve been doing some reading, and looking at new cameras. I’d like to be able to shoot raw format images for my digital imaging class next spring. I’d also like to be able to experiment with manual settings, but I’m not ready to invest in a very expensive camera. CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) is software I can install on my current Powershot A520. According to what I’ve read, this hack will allow my current camera to do these things. We’ll see how it goes.
