Lesson one of photography:
Don't insert a photo SD card into the disc drive of a imac - not only with you break the fancy pants computer (resulting it in languishing behind the "genius bar" of the Apple Store for almost a fortnight) but you won't get any pictures uploaded.
Thankfully the computer is home sweet home, so i can finally finish season one of "Community"!
I also have a copy of Barbara London and John Upton's famed textbook "Photography" in the mail. Though somehow i don't think that the above lesson will feature in book's 10th edition...
