Today is another day that reminds me how close fall is! It also reminds me how close BABY is as he will be a fall baby. As much as I have a love/hate relationship with Chicago – I truly overall love it. I have a hate relationship with some of the politics that have put us in a pretty deep hole and this past winter REALLY tested my IL patience (it was brutal, truly). However, the fact that I get to enjoy all four seasons, don’t have to worry about scary spiders (like a BLACK WIDOW, omg.), hurricanes, tornadoes, and forest fires plus – all the culture of Chicago – the neighborhoods, world class food and entertainment – THE LAKE, it really is a great place to be, albeit expensive haha.
The changing of the seasons makes for some great pictures. In the winder I can throw Evan in a snowsuit in a pile of snow, fall in a pile of leaves – the summer offers beaches, water parks and pools – the spring we get to explore the garden for sprouting flowers. You get the idea. Although I have little spare time, something I love to do is capture moments on camera. Several years ago my hubby bought me a Nikon and I’ve been lucky enough to capture some really great moments. ❤
These have become REALLY difficult to catch though – because my autofocus has been broken for like a year. With still objects, NBD – with a child? BIG DEAL. So I’m on the market for a new DLSR. At some point I’d really like to take a class and pick it up as yet another hobby – it is something I really do enjoy.
So I’m on the market for a new camera. I’m sure I could just buy a lens or take the Nikon in for repairs but I really have my eye on a Canon. Why do there have to be so many models? I have no clue what I really need, or the major differences between them and with all the camera lingo that I barely understand it has been an intense journey to knowledge. So any suggestions? 😀
