Changes to my Photography

Well my dear followers,
In a couple of hours, I will be flying in midair in plan headed across the pond to jolly old England. I am going in order to participate in a cause that is close to my heart. My great-great uncle served in WW2 as a pilot and was killed in action due to an overloading of his plane. Every year the 93rd bomber group which he was in, has a reunion where WW2 vets and family get together and reminsce about that time long ago, chat with friends, and go to different museums relating to the place where we travel to. This year a small group is going to Norwich England to see where the vets were stationed and to visit various mueseums containing WW2 related items. So for the next two weeks I will be in England drinking many cups of tea. Actually before I go to England I am visiting some friends in Scotland and then going up to the Isle of Sky which is a beautiful island north of Scotland. But before I board the plane I thought I would share some changes I have made to my camera/photography happiness.

After much babysitting and teaching tennis I finally have bought another camera lens. I bought Canon telephoto IS 55-200mm. It zooms sooo much better than my old one, oh my goodness. Here are some pictures I took with it.

I took this one with my new lens as we were driving.
Along with that camera lens I decided to purchase a tripod because it would help steady the camera lens. With that tripod I was able to take a lot of pictures at graduation at my church, when otherwise my camera would have never held steady enough to take a picture with the horrible lighting.

I also am trying out Adobe Lightroom since it is an editing program that I can do while we are driving all around England. It's a nice program but a little hard to get used to, but the pictures turn out soo much better. Here is one of them.

An awesome blue orb thing :)
Last but defineatley not least, I made a cover for my camera strap. My great aunt who used to be a seamstress was in town, and I have been wanting to do it for a while, so I went over to my cousin's house and we did that yesterday morning. It wasn't too hard and I learned a lot.

Today is actually my Dad's 40th birthday, so Happy Birthday Daddy!

I will try and update the blog as often as I can with all of my travels. :)
