Don't you love it when you're pleasantly surprised? I took one shot of my map, and then decided to put my external flash, which I rarely use, on the camera. I grabbed two more shots and this was the last one.
Looking at them in the camera I thought they were blah and no good, but once I loaded them into Lightroom2, I realized they weren't so bad after all, and maybe, actually, pretty good. :)
Lesson learned: play with the flash more often and learn how it can improve my photos.
The map is for places where I have sent my camera straps. Some of the smaller north eastern states, and a few of the larger cities like Los Angeles, I have to use the little white flags and write the number on them. :)
