Goodbye, Old Friends

Goodbye, Old Friends

This weekend, we finally started going through old photo equipment in our effort to declutter. In late 2010, I upgraded to the Canon 5D MII and since then, have hardly looked at my old Canon 30D body and EFS lenses. On to bigger and better, right?

Why Social Media Scares Me

Why Social Media Scares Me

I’ll admit it. I’m scared of social media. With every new social media network, I get a little more afraid. This doesn’t mean I’m not using social media, but I do have a mini freak-out every time I get a new [non-FB] notification. Why all this fear?

Yes, I’ve been terrible about keeping up with my photography blog. Our homeless adventure blog and snowboarding has been keeping me otherwise occupied. But here’s a quick post with some parting shots of Breckenridge – of course our final day in town was a nice powder day.

All photos taken with the Canon 5D Mark II and my nice new 24-70/f2.8 lens. I haven’t had a chance to use it much yet (I’ve discovered I don’t really like shooting with cold hands, explaining my lack of photos), but so far, so good.

MIA

MIA

Yes, I have been MIA…for this entire year. I thought I was going to be able to blog all the way through this, but it turns out I can’t blog, leave my job, pack, have a sinus infection, and road trip all at the same time.
