so these boys.



i've been hanging with them a lot.
and i like them.
why? they walk around with a camera like i do. (well, and they're cool)
and even though they SOMETIMES whine when i stick a camera in front of their face...
well i'm not the only one who's doing it. so i don't feel as bad.
and one of them also shoots with an SLR. he actually nudged me into the SLR world.

so anyways. we've had a couple of outings this week.
first, we went to exposition park, which has a bunch of museums. and a rose garden.
we ended up walking into the museum of natural history. bad call. because i went there for field trips about 4 times between grades 1 and 6.
and nothing has really changed.
and the dinos were closed, which made me feel ripped off.
a couple of shots -










today. we went to santa monica...because us SLR nerds wanted to shoot the ferris wheel at night.
so i figured out how to set my camera at night. and i played around a lot. and got some cool stuff.
and we made the non-SLR shooters a bit jealous :P
and this one photog guy complimented us. that was sweet. although when he first came up to us, we thought he was going to steal our cameras. haha!
and realized i needed a tripod pretty badly. because i was using this little ledge that people use to put fish bait on to hold my camera steady.
and it was slimy and it smelled like crap. ewwww.
but i got good shots. and i borrowed brian's tripod too.















okay, so i realize that this post was VERY photo-heavy. sorry for the loading time!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the congrats on my last post! i'm still giddy from it all :)
and HUGE CONGRATS to the HOFers!!! especially to my buddy jill. especially because she pushed me to enter this year :)
