I had my first job interview yesterday.
Honestly, it was a little scary.
Sitting and talking about mainly myself and why it would be good for the owners to have me work for them isn't necessarily my favorite thing to do. However, it went really good, and I'll hear back from them next week if I got the job.
Before the interview, I picked blackberries with Joseph and Abigail. We were a little early in the season for them, and as a result, barely filled up an inch in the bottom of a bucket.
It was fun though, and gave us something to do. :)
He said, "I'll let you take one picture of me if I can use your camera afterwards."
I said, "Okay, but only for a minute."
I didn't get Darcy back for another twenty minutes. Without knowing it, he was shooting with the ISO set at 3200. On a sunny day. In August. Needless to say, he had the shutter speed cranked way up.
I'm pretty proud, though. I had my camera on manual, and he managed both that and my manual focus lens. In his words: "I'm an awesome photographer, you just don't let me use Darcy."
For the record, I've shared my camera twice this week, something I never do.
They were everywhere. We couldn't walk without hitting a web with our faces. At least they're photogenic.
I almost walked right into the big yellow and black one, less than an hour after Joseph warned us how bad their bites are. I shrieked, pointed at it, whipped off my lens cap and started shooting.
It's like a jungle outside. Green, growing things everywhere. Personally, I'm ready for everything to turn brown and red and orange. I've been trying to convince myself that we're creeping towards fall, but it looks as though we'll have at least a few more weeks of summer.
Incidentally, we're nearly out of the specaloos that we brought back from France. They're my favorite, and I got used to eating them all the time in France. I wish we had an endless supply or something.
