So nothing of interest happened today. Thus, when I was thinking of photos, I decided I wanted to take a photo of a flower. It’s been awhile, after all (one whole day!). Flowers are pretty. Even Japanese killer bees (<–clickable, and yes they do exist on Iki, and yes I took a picture of them when I went to get the Japanese honey, thinking it was a hummingbird, but it was a frapping hornet) can get behind flowers.
But then I realized it was night time. “No problem!” thinks I, “as I have this lovely flash that cost me $400 that I rarely use. Let us use it!”
…and that’s when I realized that the flash shoe on top of my 30D is bent, so I can’t actually fit the flash on top of it. Greeeeat. So this was taken with the on camera flash, which honestly didn’t do that bad of a job.
Moral of the story: …I can’t afford to get a new SLR if I want to keep traveling, so I guess I’ll have to figure out how to use off camera flashes. Yup.
