I did venture outside a few times to practice with my new camera that I got for my birthday earlier this month. It's a Canon EOS 60D and I haven't mastered it yet, but I'm trying. I found a lot of things in bloom this week as subjects for my fledgling efforts.
I'm beginning to feel a little more comfortable with this camera. Maybe next week I'll try my hand at bird photography.
And next week I hope the weather conditions will be a bit more conducive to spending time outside.
