taking advantage..

Boy, has it been awhile! :P

I took this yesterday morning, it was really cold and foggy .

My family has been trying to enjoy this autumn weather while it lasts. We went to the park with my Grandma and Grandpa and sketched leaves. There was a nice breeze, warm sunshine and fun.

"Test Drive"

As all of you know, I am trying to save up for a "nice" camera.

Even though I am a long way off before I have enough.

I wanted to try a couple different good professional cameras.

 So a couple days ago we went to Bernheim Forest with the D's and I got to use their Nikon D100.

It was difficult at first, dealing with the settings on lighting, and the focus and all, but I quickly adapted. well, kinda. :0)

 I have used Canon Rebels in the past , but this was my first time "test-driving" a Nikon.=) Thanks Johnathan!

 Here are some pictures I took with it and then edited:

you can tell I had the wrong setting for lighting. =)

 Hope more to come!!!!!
