Last photo of September 2021

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t cheat again. There is the last photo of September too, unedited, the last in the gallery, but there is a whole bunch of others as well.

You see, I figure why leave you alone with one terrible photo if I can add a few that happened before this last one in order to project you the last evening with my uncle before he returned to Slovenia yesterday.

We finally went to his favourite bar around here, Bi-Bar in Porto Ercole, only to discover their beautiful platform above the sea (as showed in this post) closed, and a makeshift, smaller one next to it in operation. Still, he was happy with his unfiltered Ichnusa (beer from Sardinia) and nuts, and I was happily testing my new old camera with mixed results, as you will see. And with the best gelato around here.

I took many shots from the same spot by the table, pressing buttons, rolling rollers, feeling like a monkey, thinking that I might indeed search out some tutorials on aperture and shutter priorities, so that I can at least be able to distinguish between the two. The featured shot is the result of this testing: f/4.8, 1/25 sec for the win.

The last three photos remain as taken. The last photo is the last in September, only taken because uncle said that it would make a nice photo, while I had my doubts.

Here are the rules and they are simple:

1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30st September.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.
5. Tag “The Last Photo”.

  1. Wonderful memories for Uncles visit Manja. The last one is just right for Last Photo. I think your old new camera will work well and yes look up a manual as it will make it easier. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

  2. I love that poem!
    I keep meaning to look at the manual and try to figure out what my camera can do but I’m afraid to get stuck somewhere I can’t get out. It’s happened too many times and my daughter is tired of rescuing me. I am terrible with written instructions. (K)

  3. It’s so much fun to play with the camera and see what it will do especially when you don’t have to pay to develop bad pictures in the learning process. My favorite will always be pictures of the dog. The rest is wonderful also.
