I thought there was something wrong…


with my camera.  And I was a little annoyed.  I have only had this camera about 6 weeks, and I have been uncharacteristically careful with it. 

 Maybe 2 weeks ago, it seemed as if all my pictures were a bit fuzzy.  I thought it was my caffeine habit getting in the way, you know, the shaky hands that come with the 2 pots a day that are consumed around here.  (if it makes it less abhorrent:  it is fair trade, organic coffee, I am just doing my part!)

So I tried different things, setting the camera on a solid surface, different settings, no flash, double flash, you name it.  Pictures were still fuzzy. 

I was thisclose to taking the darn thing back from whence it came, when I found the problem.  A greasy slimy fingerprint, just the size of a 4 year old’s thumb, right in the middle of my lens. (how I missed this for weeks is a topic for another day). 

A soft, lint free cloth and no more fuzzy pictures.    Yippee!


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.

  1. Love it! We recently purchased a new digital camera and I have actually keep the protective clear film on the screen to save it from prints as long as possible (wish me luck!). Also, kudos on the “green” coffee!

  2. I still have not figured out my camera except the basics. I really laughed on this one. I could just imagine if we were still at work together & on break & Big Al was there. Funny, Funny
