"Camera Ready"

I woke up this morning and I had so many plans, that is until I went to carry them out. It started out fine I put on a pot of coffee, and went to get my jewelry. I was going to redo the pictures they needed it badly. Having laid out the jewelry, stopping only to sip my coffee and plan on the new shots, I was ready.

With the jewelry in "pose" I picked up the camera and snapped a picture. Very happy with myself I thought this is going to work out fine, I even started to feel a bit excited now. Then it happened, the camera in my hand says low battery and turns itself off. I reload it with new batteries and take another picture when there it goes again, “Low Battery”, and it turns off. “What the hey”, I say out loud.

The dog jumps up and sits next to me on the couch as I take the batteries out again and deposit new ones in there place. I remove the necklace and put earrings down now, thinking I would change my luck. I snapped a picture and the camera again shuts down.

What started out as a good day suddenly turned bad. I opened up a new pack of batteries thinking maybe there was something wrong with the pack I was using. Needless to say it didn’t matter, so I had another cup of coffee complained to the dog that could care less. I decided I wasn’t going to let it get me down and I posted the jewelry on Artfire anyway. One picture sales, two items, I’ll take my chanc
es it’s still better then nothing.

When life just doesn’t go as planned, don’t fight it. Sometimes it’s just a test of your patience and faith. It is easier to meet it half way and compromise.
