A new Camera
My kayak is put away for the season... however, if we have a mild December like we did last year I made sure to put it in a place where I can easily access it. I do promise to post a bit throughout the winter! I hope that people enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving and enjoyed time with people you care about. I was fortunate to be able to spend another Thanksgiving with my family, spent the day with a nice crowd, 42 of us in total!
I am typically not a person who shops on Black Friday. I much prefer to be the only person paddling in a quiet stream to being in a brightly lit store with hundreds of people who seem to be on a mission. This year, however, I have been looking for a new camera. Sadly after one of my last paddling trips, I dropped my old one. I have used a Cannon Powershot camera since I started writing the blog. The first one I bought I chose because it seemed easy to use, was digital, and seemed to be small enough to easily take while paddling. After a while I wanted to have a camera that I could use to zoom in a bit more, so I upgraded to a newer Powershot. Now... as of last night, I am the owner of another Powershot, this time it is the SX150IS (This is my third powershot!)
Many of you have reached out and asked what I use to take my photos, and I am hoping that my new camera will allow me to continue to take photos worth posting!
Today I decided to walk around Portland a bit to experiment with my new camera a bit. I started out taking a short walk in the Fore River Sanctuary and later headed to East End Beach.
While they are not paddling photos, I hope you enjoy... I tried to capture a bit of the season. (while playing with the focus!)
Stay tuned for a BIG announcement in the next couple of weeks... if you follow me on facebook you already know the news... (I am just waiting for an update!)
