A Day with the Animals

During my day off yesterday, I headed over to Disney's Animal Kingdom to do some shooting. Even though I work there, exploring the park doesn't feel like "being at work." There's so much there that I don't see when I'm on the clock. In fact, the monkeys are right next door!

Animals have a calming, restorative effect on me. I might even call it spiritual. Maybe I'll pursue wildlife photography. How does one manage to get into that career? I have no idea. But I think I would love it.

PhotoFriday: Overcast


Here's an oldie. As we approach the stormy season, I look forward to more lightning hunts on my balcony.

This week I invested in a new lens, the Canon EFS 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM. This provides a super-wide angle view of any scene. The pic below was taken with its most extreme setting. I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can do with this new piece of equipment--particularly at the wedding coming up this weekend!
