I have been obsessed with the clouds this past year. They have just been breathtaking! I am always pulling over and trying to get a picture with my phone. Yesterday was one of those days that I just had to take a picture!
Just to forewarn you; this posting is not going to be weight loss related. Some days I just need to turn that off because I drive myself insane trying to figure out new ways to say how I'm doing regarding my progress. I am sure I have repeated myself with postings but I can't remember everything I have wrote about over the past couple of years. I know it is the theme of my blog but today I'm just going to talk about stuff!
This past weekend was great. I did something every day! I had today off and I just got back home from visiting an old friend. It was so nice to catch up! Saturday and Sunday I went out of town with my Mom, which is always fun. I am so excited because yesterday I finally upgraded cameras and bought myself a new one! For anyone that knows me, knows this is a big deal for me! The timing was perfect and I am so excited over the good deal I got. I knew there was a reason I was holding off so long with making a purchase! (Over a year to be exact) & I ended up saving $200.00! I can't wait to start doing photo-shoots again (which I will be soon) - I feel more inspired and confident than ever! Below is the first picture I took with my new camera. I just love it - I love my old camera too but I am going to take it in to get professionally cleaned & tuned up to see what the issue is exactly that I have been having. I have tried to fix it myself but nothing I did seemed to work without the same issue coming back. Maybe it's just old age! I've had it for about 10 years. Once I get my older one cleaned up I will have 2. I have always wanted to have a backup! I just know it will come in real handy and will give me the peace of mind that I need to shoot without the fear of not having a plan B; especially for weddings. There is no worse feeling than to have your camera unexpectedly malfunction on someone's wedding day when you are the one in charge of photographing it! Trust me; I know how that feels first hand. My first camera gave me a great run but now it is time to explore the possibilities of the future! My Mom said I act as if my right arm had been missing all this time and I just got it back! Photography is not just a hobby for me, it is a big part of my life and maybe that is what I have been missing all this time. I feel complete again!
