Not much to say about this set. Still trying to get used to the buttons and functions on the new DSLR and Athena was the only willing test subject around. For some reason, before when Jess handed me #2 (her backup) at weddings, I didn't have to think about anything. Now that I actually own this one, I find myself constantly wanting to experiment with it. A Canon is a Canon is a Canon, but I guess I'm just easily amused with new, expensive toys.
Speaking of new and expensive, I fortunately have a boring day job that allows me to do whatever I want, including read the paper (how 'bout that Mom, I'm paying attention to the news!), and I happened upon this article in USA Today this morning.
I'd been wondering to myself for what seems like forever, when will they come out with a DSLR that also shoots video? Not that I use video often... I have a nice video camera and no charger for it and just haven't bothered to pick one up... but looks like Nikon finally did it.
And I loved how they just had to mention in there that rival Canon announced this week that it is introducing the new 50D in October! I haven't done much research on it myself, but from what I've heard so far it's not a far cry from what I have now except it's supposed to have improved low-light shooting quality. I just can't believe I just got this thing a few weeks ago and they announce this!
Anyway, onto the photos of Athena before I start thinking about a trade-in. :)
She jumps on top of the pump house when she's had enough of Piglet biting her ears and ankles. Pig's too short to reach her here so she hangs out until Pig wanders away.
No diffuse glow in Pshop on any of these. Was shooting with a Sigma lens that's really soft. Sometimes I like it, sometimes it bothers me.
And a couple of the little (errr big) rascals together. Pig is such a goof. I think she looks like a cat here!
It was tricky, but she managed to climb up to Athena. Athena didn't mind though, she greeted her with a smooch.
