Shots from the Day – New Guy with a Camera

Although I in no way claim to have a clue what I am going with photography, I was happy with the following shots from today’s very short outing with the new camera. I might go back out to a particular spot at sunset, today. Please note that no editing has been done to the photos aside from cropping them together in a single image.




Got a new Camera – Nikon p900


Now, I am not one to generally splurge on things for myself… But, for this item I made an exception. I have been eyeballing the Nikon p900 for close to 7 months now and finally just gave in and got one. I am in no way a photographer, although I do have quite a few friends that do it for a living. No, I just enjoy the art of it. Although I am inexperienced, I am looking forward to tackling this camera and having it on my outings with the family.

For example, this thing would have been great to have at the kite festival this last weekend.

Here is one example of why this camera has gotten my attention.

Make a kite from scratch they said…


Now, obviously these photos are not at all doing it justice… but, the lady friend started making a kite from scratch the other day. And well, it got off the ground. It’s of a guy with a frowny face that has a rainbow over his head. Hopefully I will post some better photos of it in action at the Austin Kite Festival This next weekend!
