There are a few things that I would like to chat about today. Perhaps you have an opinion or suggestion for me that I can put to work! My blogging friends always have such good advice.
First, though, here are three shots of the moon taken over the past few days. That Blue Moon is already down to 93% as of last night so looks something like an egg wobbling on a counter.
Since getting the smaller Nikon and putting the Canon aside, moon shots have been a challenge. The first photo (on the left) was set on auto; the middle photo followed Lovella's instructions provided *here* and gave me a little better result; the final one followed Mr. Cottage Days advice via Donna, which was this: M setting, f16, ISO 100, 1/100. I also used a tripod and the timer for the final two shots.
For the harvest moon — did I say Harvest Moon?! I have an AAB [arbitrary autumn block] on this blog for another seven days — I'm going back to the Canon and try these settings. That gives me until September 18 or 19 or somewhere in there to practice. You know what this means, Dears; you're going to have to watch me practice.
Second topic of the morning...Pinning Protocol on Pinterest. Gee. That would have made a great title all on its own. I do love alliteration. Anyway, this is what I see as a potential problem with Pinning on Pinterest — told ya!
Let me set this up: I see a pin worthy item. I pin the item and make sure that the pin works and is properly described. Then I notice that the blogger has already pinned her own pin worthy item. (I have done this myself so that's not the question.) The question is this: When I see that the blogger has already pinned the item, should I delete the pin I have placed and then re-pin from the blogger's pin or should I just leave it be? Tell me what you think, if you haven't already. I have been having an ongoing discussion behind the scenes with a few friends.
Are there rules on Pinterest? Beyond *these*?
Next question: do you have an AAB on your blog, too? ☺ (I would just like to add that we woke to 48°F this morning.)
A happy weekend to you...
