the zoo...

is, among many things, a great place for camera experimentation! I don't know what I'm doing, but I'm enjoying pressing buttons and finding out through trial and error what works. One day maybe I'll feel competent behind a camera, but today that is definitely not the case. I'm trying not to become frustrated or overwhelmed, and instead to focus on the little victories. Like taking a picture that I can share with you that doesn't look half bad! Here are a few of my favorites from this morning's outing.







The last one is of my niece, Allie. This sweet little girl just found out she's a big sister! For Marianna and Adrienne, that means one more beloved cousin, and there just can't be enough of those.

Angie!! They're awesome-- looks like you have a super-great camera! It picks up color and light so well. How fun! (I like what you did to the pic of the girls together) Both Adam and I said how big Marianna is! Crazy.

They all look wonderful! You're doing a great job. Keep practicing and you'll get more comfortable.
Of course, it always helps when the subjects are adorable. =)
