Cemetery Girl….

My favorite place in all of Cincinnati has to be Spring Grove Cemetery. I would challenge anyone to find a more beautiful place in the tri-state area.

It is overflowing with the most lovely flora and fauna, not to mention the statues and mausoleums…

I trekked across the river two weeks ago to try and capture some “winter bleak” photos with my new camera.
I thought I was well prepared; I had charged the battery the night before, gathered all my equipment that morning and headed out.

I get to Spring Grove just in time to see that there is still some fog floating above one of the ponds, I’m excited!
I sling the camera around my neck, stick the iPhone in my pocket and head over to the pond.
I turn on the camera.

NOTHING.

What?!?!

Annoyed, I head back to the car, switch out the batteries.

NOTHING.

I’m so mad! This new camera that I paid a good amount of money for and it’s already crapped out on me!
I start swearing at Best Buy.

I consider leaving, but I’ve taken some really good photos with the iPhone in the past, so I stay.

Even as disappointed as I was with the camera debacle, I still got some good photos with the iPhone.

As it turned out, I was charging the camera all wrong, but I didn’t discover this until I got home.
Best Buy has nothing to fear now!!
