I hung my new valances. I like them! :)
I had some trouble photographing them. My camera has an autofocus feature - you point the camera toward a thing, press the autofocus, and when the camera has focused on the thing, it gives a little green light. Unfortunately, it does not always recognize a black thing as a thing.
I pointed my camera at the valances, pressed the autofocus... and got a confused beep and a little yellow question mark.
I tried again and got the same thing. It's like the camera was looking for something, but only saw black and was all "I got nothing for you."
Finally, I had to take a wider shot and focus on the lamp next to the window. So the valances are blurry.
