There is nothing more exciting for a city girl than taking a day-trip to the suburbs and wandering an apple orchard. We’ve gone every fall for the past few years (and I went a bunch as a kid, participating in the obligatory hayrides and petting zoos and corn mazes, too) and every year we come back with more apples than we know what to do with. This year we ended up with 8lbs. Eight! It happens faster than you realize, you just keep picking what looks good (and maybe eating one along the way) until voila, you’re schlepping a peck of 30 apples back to the weigh station.
I had a lot of fun, especially getting to spend time shooting with my new camera.
“What was that?” you ask. Oh. Ahem. Yeah. I bought a new camera. (!!!!!)
Do not yell at me (JAMAL). My degree is in Photojournalism! Okay, so I’m not technically a photographer, and I didn’t need a new camera, but I’d been feeling for a while that I’d outgrown my trusty t2i. The next step was going for a full-frame DSLR, like the Canon 6d, but with a price tag of $1895 it just wasn’t smart or necessary. And then last week the price dropped $325 (it still is, too!), and my Chase card was offering 5% back on Amazon purchases, and Amazon was offering 2% back on cameras, and long story short I bought it in a flurry of excitement and guilt-sweat. I LOVE IT. It’s heavy and fast and sharp and beautiful. I used my t2i to take that photo of it, and even after only using the 6d for a week the t2i felt like a toy. And I’m able to use my 50mm lens on the 6d because there is no crop factor. Did I mention I love it?
How was your weekend?
