Of new cameras & rainy days

The day my 60D arrived I didn't get home from my harp lesson until around 5:00pm; I exercised great self control and waited to tear open the box until AFTER I took my shoes off (impressive, I know!). But alas... camera batteries do not arrive charged, which meant waiting 2.5 more hours. I improved the time by reading the manual (an unheard-of feat for me... manuals are my nemesis). The battery charged up just in time for.... dinner. I snapped a few pizza shots just because I couldn't wait any more and then set it aside to eat. And then it's dark. So I had to just shoot things around the house in nasty tungsten light, which was really okay because it gave me a chance to see how the high ISO performs (oh, gracious, am I ever in love!).

What was the point of all that? Merely to say that morning dawned and I was pretty eager to really try it out. Outside. Natural light. Beautiful sister. That sort of thing.

And then....


Yes, last week I posted about the joy of finally getting rain after a long drought. And getting more of it is a good thing. But couldn't it have waited until after I did a photoshoot? Nope.

So you make the best of it. You balance an umbrella in one hand and a camera in the other; the aforementioned beautiful sister dons her red jacket and arms herself with her own umbrella and away you go!

Not the most ideal conditions, but it works for practicing. :-)


  1. Awww! I love those pictures of Tara! :) And since I know nothing of cameras..I'm afraid that I don't really have anything to say, except that I think the quality looks amazing and I think you photography is beautiful! Congrats on getting the new camera! :)

  3. LOVE these! makes me want to go puddle-jumping. :)
