There’s nothing like sunshine, blue skies…
and a couple days of antibiotics to get the creative juices flowing again.
Yesterday, I re-worked the mantel and put away the last of my winter decorating.
I washed all the bedding, threw out my toothbrush, opened windows
and used Clorox wipes all over the house.
After being stuck at home for the past several days dealing with Strep Throat,
I finally ventured out. I went to Goodwill (donated and purchased),
visited the Camera Shop to exchange my tripod for an upgrade
and I went to Michael’s to get supplies for a new Spring project.
It feels good to feel good.
And talking about feeling good.
This past Holiday Season, I got a new tri-pod for my camera.
I researched several new tri-pods online first.
I was looking for a tri-pod with a pivoting arm for table top shots and videos.
Being that a really good tri-pod is somewhat costly…
I wanted to make sure I got the best deal.
I decided to go to the local Camera Shop to check them out in person
before I made my online purchase. (I know, I know, that’s wrong)
Once there the guy helping me was so nice, that I spent a few more bucks
and bought local. I did the same thing a few years ago when I was looking
for my new camera. Great Service is worth something. Right?
Long story short, I bought the wrong tri-pod. (technically it wasn’t my fault.)
Flash forward to today.
I stopped by the Camera Shop to see if I was doing something wrong.
A couple of the sales-guys and myself were playing with it when a more
knowledgeable salesman informed us that my tri-pod with the rolling ball
action wasn’t made for what I was wanting. (Oops, someone made a mistake.)
He took me over and showed me the one that would, explained how everything
worked and exchanged my 3 month old tri-pod. “No problem, I’ll take care of you”.
You don’t get that kind of personal service when you buy online. (Just sayin!)
