A photo-crazy weekend

With all the running around we did this weekend, all the events we attended, I easily took more than 1,000 photos.

My friends got so sick of seeing me with a camera in my hands, a few of them started to question why I don't change professions. But I have a feeling that it's just as difficult to make a living taking the photos I like to take as it is writing about the things that I want to write about.

So, in an attempt to feature a few photos I took this weekend (and to not overwhelm my Wordless Wednesday post this week), here's a bit of a photo diary.

    nice! I will have to check out your Flickr sets next. What kind of camera are you using? it's really good quality :-)

  2. That corn looks so good. I love grilled corn!

  3. @starbursidereus -- Thanks. It's a Nikon D40X. A Christmas gift. My first DSLR, and I'm still learning how to use it. In fact, I have a class on it on Saturday morning.

    @The Hunter's Wife -- Me too! Some of the best corn I've ever had was fresh-picked Indiana corn. When is the corn harvest? It's only knee high at the Fourth of July, right?


Hi! Feel free to leave a comment. You do your part, and I'll try to keep the conversation going.
