Spring has sprung

Spring is finally here! Though the snow was beautiful at times, we had way too much of it this year, and I’m not sad to say good-bye. Today was the first nice (and snow-free) day, so we headed to our local zoo. I took this opportunity to bring my camera and get to know it a bit better…

Thawing

South Bend is finally thawing out. Today was the first semi-warm day in months. (Sad that I consider 40 degrees warm, but when it’s been a consistent -12, 40 was welcome to stay). So  I bundled up the baby and took her and the dog for a walk on campus. I met up with my best friend and her two dogs, and well.. we were quite a sight.

The Beginning

I received a DSLR camera for my 28th birthday. My best friend is a professional photographer and my mom is a food blogger. Both take incredible pictures and make the process look so easy. I haven’t got a clue how to work this camera, and beyond that even less of a clue on how to edit. I am excited to immerse myself in this new hobby and learn everything I can. If nothing else, this will be good amusement for my mom and Les for now. (don’t laugh too hard) 😉
