Big Yawn.

ISO 400
Exp 1/160
I caught Spitz in a big yawn, and that pretty much sums up this week. Nothing really exciting happened. With Brandon gone for three weeks and with me winding down from the race, it was a pretty uneventful. I could have posted pictures of me lounging on the couch, but instead I'll post another picture of my cute kitties!

The Race.

I ran the Vienna Half Marathon this past weekend. Sadly, we were only there for a short time so I really don't have any good pictures of the city. We arrived late and on the day of the race I was definitely not going to haul my camera around as I ran the 13.1 miles! So there are no pictures of beautiful Vienna, just memories as I huffed around the city trying to get to the finish line.

Oh, but here is a picture of my beautiful medal! Our hotel room had a random wooden beam in it, which made for a perfect place to hang my medal.

Catching up and a bit of a change.

Because I am horrible at keeping up with the 365 project and uploading photos to the blog, I have decided to turn this into just a photoblog and not a 365 project. The goal is the same, the plan to get there is just a little different. I will continue to take photos and post them a couple times a week. Hopefully over time I will see improvement and will learn more and more about photography along the way.

So here are some photos from while I was away:
I'm not sure how I feel about the tilt on this one, but I liked the lighting, even if it is overexposed. I took the shot and forgot to change my ISO setting. oops.

Mia was fascinated with the raindrops on the window in our loft. I definitely need to work on my exposure and lighting on this one, but I still love the moment.

Playing with my new lens...the rain on our patio table.

My new Epiphanie camera bag arrived! In between studying for my exams and playing with my cats, I snapped a quick picture of my beatiful new bag.

Here is my new lens - Nikon 24-85mm. I am still playing with it and I'm not sure exactly how I feel about it, but so far it's not too bad. This picture is horribly out of focus but you get the point.

I used this lens at a conference this week and had some pretty good results with low light. Any problems with focus and exposure were purely the fault of the photographer ;)
