These were my seats. It was a great game. The Twins stopped a four-game losing streak and Justin Morneau hit a grand slam. Very fun:
It’s amazing what a good camera will do to your ability to take interesting photos! It makes all the difference in the world. While I don’t pretend to know what I’m doing, I am having a lot of fun with my new camera as I try to figure it out.
On Friday I met up with some friends at the Leaning Tower of Pizza on University by Dinkytown and aside from the abysmal service (I have never ever in my life not left a tip, so this was a first), I had fun and part of that fun was taking pictures.
It’s funny. The one photo I thought would turn out to be pretty interesting wasn’t that at all but one that I just snapped, not thinking much at all about it, turned out pretty nicely. I just like the way the people are framed, engaged in conversation. I especially like the contrasts in light: The dark interior with the lighted exterior and how the blue light from the Cocktails sign highlights the booth, table and plant:
I must’ve been the only person in Minnesota who was happy that we got a blizzard yesterday. I was afraid I would have to wait an entire year before being able to take Winter photos with my brand, spanking new camera.
I was inspired by the Punch Pizza Flickr photo contest and the remarkable photographs that were submitted. So I broke down and got myself a Canon PowerShot SX100 IS from RefurbDepot.com. I’ve been telling my friends, beware the recently converted because when I get into something, I tend to jump in with both feet. This is no exception.
I’ve already uploaded hundreds of pictures to my Flickr account. I’m not saying they’re great, far from it. I know I’ve got a lot to learn. But it sure as hell is fun!
I guess now I need a photo blog.
