I have a new camera, and our trip to Olympia last week was a testing run. I was trying out the macros setting and the super macro and the 20 power zoom. It was fascinating to see how close in I could get to things with that zoom. I was testing flash and no flash. Automatic and manual settings. And I was trying to make heads and tales of the owner's manual. And you know very well that I am inclined to take pictures of odd things or odd pictures of things anyway.
You know how it is when you are away from home and you just might do something in public that you might not in your own back yard? Not something naughty--just something a bit out of character (as if my taking a picture of a ketchup bottle would be out of character.) Because, after all, you will never see these people again, right?
So we stopped for lunch and I was taking pictures of my Diet Pepsi bubbles, and my straw wrapper, and the scene out the window, and the fork. I laid my camera aside while we relished some really good fish and chips. As we finished and waited for the check, I turned on the camera again, having spotted the reflection of the ketchup bottle and wondering how well I could capture it.
So here I am, about 125 miles from home, focusing my mind and my lens on the bottle before me and I hear this familiar voice from home: "So, katney, do you always take pictures of ketchup bottles?"
What can I say? It was an Andy Warhol moment!
Odd Shots is hosted here every Monday. I've made another new logo. You are welcome to use any of those that are available when you post an Odd Shot of your own. Please link back here in your Odd Shot post. Sign the Mr. Linky, but leave a comment as well, since Mr. Linky sometimes disappears on me and is disabled when the new Odd Shot is posted the following week. I will be discontinuing the Odd Shot Blogroll in the sidebar, as the Mr. Linky is the best indicator of who has played this week.
