Day at the zoo

Today I went to the Memphis Zoo with Mom, Emma, and Matt.  It was so much fun!  After trying to take some decent pictures of these zany kiddies, though, I just want to say out loud: I am so impressed that Melissa takes such great pictures of them.  

Gorgeous?  Yes, they are.  Photogenic?  Of course.

Still? Never. Ever.

The fact that they are so active is fantastic until you try to document it with a camera.  I imagine I'd feel similarly if I attempted to photograph a tornado.  Or Taz on Bugs Bunny if he were real.  Matt is a little easier to catch (you'll see that I have more pictures of him) but Emma zipped away whenever she saw me trying to focus in her direction!  

Plus, I'm still messing around with a new lens that isn't exactly designed for speed-of-light action. It is also not ideal for zoo shots, but what the heck.

This link takes you to a picture of the Domaine Carneros winery in California I took last year.

Photography channel coming?

Looks like there will be a TV network solely devoted to photography. How cool! Here's a blurb from their site:

Photography is the universal language spoken in every country around the world. Now everyone can share their vision and passion by connecting with the hearts and minds of photographers everywhere.

Check out their web site for a video explaining their concept.

Rogue wedding photographer?

Ho hum, I haven't uploaded many photographs lately because I've been using my film camera rather than my digital...and the film scanner at school is broken.  Instead, I've decided to share with you a hilarious - yet creepy - SCADshort.  For more information on SCADshorts, visit their website.
