I was about to go out to the park to take pictures of flowers with a friend, when he suddenly started talking about something big going on. Seems there was a fire right near where he was.. I drove over as he continued to tell me about the fire. He watched as people jumped out of a window to safety. Here are some pictures that I took, while they were trying to contain the fire.
The park wasn't as impressive as I thought it'd be..I wanted to take pictures of flowers, but there were only one kind to photograph and the light was going down. Another time.
I'm so happy! I just ordered my new camera a few days ago, and it just arrived this morning! I still have to wait on the lens, but that should come next week. I bought the Canon EOS Rebel XTi. It's going to be a great entry level SLR for me. I love the fact that I can buy lenses which I'll be able to switch to a newer camera when I upgrade in the future. I won't think about upgrading for a few years though. I think this one will do just fine! It fits so well in my hands too.
I went out a few times and took pictures with my broken camera, just to decide I wasn't really happy with not knowing what setting it's on ever. Spring is one of my favorite seasons of the year, so I feel bad that my camera just happened to break a month or so before it started.
In good news..I've looked over my budget ,and it looks like I'll be able to afford a new camera by the end of this month. I'll be buying my first digital SLR, which really excites me!
When one door closes, another one opens right? I won't miss too much of the spring, and I'll have a new toy to play with soon. :)
