Will it ever end?
Still, I take pictures, I must be obsessed.
Lately I've been shooting almost exclusively with my Canon SX40 or my iPhone 4s, both of which I really love. That said, neither one is exceptionally fast, so every once in a while I feel the need to take my Canon 7d out for a spin.
Geez, I forgot how heavy it is!
But I also forgot how blindingly fast it is, wow, what a delight.
Not that I took any pictures worthy of its' speed.
But that's not my fault, I swear. We have at least a couple of dozen hummingbirds who frequent our feeders, but those little buggers have a communication system. As soon as I get the fast camera, they all go away. Poof! Whoosh! Not a hummingbird to be seen.
Here's a shot I took while trying to get the focus and light correct so I'd be ready when the hummingbird came to feed.
See how nice this shot would have been?
Later in the day,
I went in to the house,
and caught the sun backlighting this tree.
I thought it looked better
in black and white.
I love black and white photography.
And here's my "art" shot for the day.

And that's all she wrote for today.
