THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes!!! I had a wonderful birthday! It’s funny most of you thought I was older than 25 😉 Most people think I look a lot younger than I am, so I dunno! Just as planned I made pancakes, ran 5 miles, went to the pool and read This Is Where I Leave You, headed out for sushi, and then to fireworks! 😀
I also became an “official” blogger:
Mr. Prevention, my parents, and Lily went in on a Nikon D3000 for me 😀 !! And my in-laws got me a Nikon carrying case, “Nikon D3000 for Dummies” (so needed!) and 8G memory cards! My sister-in-law sent some workout clothes, lunch-to-go containers, and wood grilling planks! They’ll make an appearance this week, for sure! Thank you, loved ones! 😀
I tinkered around with my Nikon this weekend, but I didn’t want to take it to the pool or out to dinner — just too afraid of getting it wet or spilled on!! Kath is always preaching about natural lighting and it is sooooo true. The DSLR takes wonderful pictures so long as you provide the lighting…in the form of sun. Indoor lighting and the flash on the DSLR do not produce quality photos.
Canon Power Shot pictures (not so great):
And playing around with the DSLR:
I have a lot to learn, but it’s been fun!
Thanks again for all the birthday wishes! I look forward to finally catching up with some blogs this weekend! I gave my 2 weeks notice at work yesterday…it was tough! I am not looking forward to telling my patients, one-by-one, that I am leaving 🙁 But until then…3 full days of weekend left! Happy 4th, everyone!!
Question: Do you like fireworks? Do you set any off yourself?
