366 Project Update

I’ve been on a trip to Kansas/Georgia to visit family. Photo opportunities in the part of Kansas I was visiting were challenging to find, to say the least.

March 20

March 24. This is at the Chicago-O’Hare airport, where we caught our connecting flight from Wichita back down to Atlanta. What…that doesn’t make sense to you either?

March 26. Back in Georgia there were many more interesting pictures to be had. We visited Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium. The aquarium was very crowded, not to mention the dim lighting that goes hand in hand with aquariums, so getting a good shot was challenging. This was one of my favorites.

Thanks for looking and reading!

Historic Sanford.

•March 3, 2008 • 2 Comments

Historic Sanford is definitely a place I’d like to spend more time. I only got a few shots there today. Next week I’m planning on spending some time in historic Winter Park. By the way, isn’t my use of the word ‘historic’ a little funny compared to some other historic places? I mean, a friend of mine went to Scotland last year and hung out at a bar that’s older than the United States.

It’s been a good year so far.

My husband’s been giving me all sorts of new toys we can’t really afford. But I’m not returning them! >big grin<

First he got me a Wacom tablet for photo editing. It’s made things so much easier. I love it. Then, the other night, he tells me to close my eyes. So I do, and when I open them there’s this nice big camera bag. Cool. ‘Close your eyes again,’ he says. Okay. This time when I open them, I’ve got two new lenses! The 70-300 mm VR and the 10.5 mm fisheye! I haven’t had much of a chance to use the VR yet, but I went out today and had some fun with the fisheye. Here’s a few shots from around town today with it.

I happened to look down as I was climbing some steps and saw this poor little tree frog that didn’t make it through the cold snap.

January 3rd – Drove out to Blackpoint Drive on Merritt Island. It was windy, and this osprey was getting his feathers ruffled.

366 Day Challenge

•December 31, 2007 • 2 Comments

Some photogs from the NikonCafe forums have pledged to try to take a picture everyday in 2008, which is a leap-year. Hence the 366 days instead of 365 days. Well, I’ve joined in as well. I usually carry a camera with me everywhere I go, but sometimes carrying my D80 isn’t always feasible, much as I wish it was! So I’ve got a new toy for this challenge: the Olympus Stylus 770SW. It’s crushproof, shockproof, freezeproof, AND waterproof! This will also give me a good reason to post on this blog everyday! >biggrin<
