I talked once before about always having a camera handy. That advice has come in very useful for me over and over again over the months, and this past weekend was no difference. I was walking to the Post Office near my apartment to pick up a package (the Ninja Turtles movie pack, to be specific – why yes, I am a nerd, what makes you ask?), and decided at the last second to take my new camera out for a full spin. Upon looking at the pictures later on, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need some more practice with it – the lens on this is a different animal than the one on the Canon Rebel I used to use.
Still, it was nice to take the camera out for a spin. All I’ve really done with it is taken some shots from my room, and truth be told that doing that with a new camera is like using a new sports car to just go to the grocery store (especially once you’ve adjusted for liberal amounts of embellishment). I may need to look into doing some more winter photography, if the weather is just willing to be on my side a bit more. Doesn’t have to be as clear as it was Saturday, but even mostly sunny days can be helpful. Hell, I’ll take an overcast day sometimes, so long as it’s not raining at me in the middle of January.
Enjoy some pictures of the playground, and let me know what you think.
