First Landscape Pictures...

     Well, I said that I would post some pics that I have taken with my new camera, so, I have almost had my camera for a month, and though I haven't used it as much as I would have liked, I did take a few landscape pictures.  None of them I am too proud about, but since I said I would post goes nothing.

 I think I like this one the best.  I love the colors of the tree, grass, and sky.  Most of those leaves have fallen of now, and I think it is snowing lightly outside right now.  Wow, this year is almost gone.


I've gotten so used to using Lightroom 3 on my sisters computer, It is hard going back to the very small edits I can do in iPhoto.  Oh well.

LIKE No More

    Hey folks, have you ever, like, been around someone who uses 'like' incorrectly, like, a lot? =D  Well, we had some people over for dinner who did just that.  Now don't get me wrong, I say 'like' incorrectly once in awhile, but these people said it several times in one sentence.  So, as the meal progressed, we started playing a game where we rang a bell that was in the middle of the table every time someone said 'like' incorrectly.  You have to understand, this wasn't your average bell.  This bell was VERY loud.  It was a bell we got at a hockey game (the only hockey game I've been to, and we didn't buy it, we found it outside of the arena)
     Our family has a bell that we sometimes ring to get people to come to eat, but the bell we used for this game was about four times louder. So, when you said like, someone would ring the bell.  It was a fun game that made us really think about what we were saying.  Maybe...even...thinking before...talking.  The game caused people to be creative and say things such as 'quite similar to' and 'such as'.  We had a good time.
     Anyway, if you haven't seen this short video yet, it is worth watching.
Have a great week!

'nough said....

Well, I forgot that a SD card would not come with the camera, so I really haven't done too much shooting with it yet.  The good news is, an 8GB SD card should come Tuesday.  It also means I will spend my time studying for midterms, which is something I really need to do.  It still is a disappointment.  Anyhow, the above picture is a picture of my new camera.  Epic, isn't it?

My T2i came today!!!!

      Hey folks, just thought I'd share that my Cannon Rebel T2i just came in the mail.  This thing is just SO cool, here are some pictures of me un-boxing it.

 Putting on the UV filter

Messing around with my T2i.

I can't wait till I can take some pictures with this and share them.  (Btw, my sister took the above shots, click here to see her blog)  
So, yeah, I'll be getting a lot of school done today.... :)

Hey people, this is a test, I'm simply testing this Blogger app on my iPod, it seems pretty cool, and I think it will come in handy. And because I am posting anyway, I thought I would throw a photo up for kicks.
P.s. This isn't a good sign, I have tried to post three times, and it hasn't worked, we'll see if this actually gets up.

Apple's Latest Keynote + iPhone 4s

     So, as most of you know Apple had one of their annual keynotes where they updated several of their products.  The biggest, and most anticipated announcement was the iPhone 4s.  If you don't have time to watch the entire keynote, Apple made a cool video on the iPhone 4s which covers a lot of the new features.  Click here to see it on Apple.
     Although the new 8mp camera and A5 possessor are cool, these were all expected changes.  The coolest new thing is Siri.  Everyone knows that Siri stole the show.  It was so cool and looks very practical.  I can't wait before it's not a beta and some of the other IOS devices can use it.  There were several other cool things such as a white iPod Touch now, a new iPod nano, iCloud, and IOS 5.  Some people were somewhat disappointed that the iPhone 5 did not come out with a completely redesigned hardware.  Anyway, just thought I would share this.

Life, School, and the future of this Blog

     Hey all, I have been doing a lot of school lately, and TONS of studying simply because I have mid-terms next week.  Among my rather crazy life, it's great to get writing again.  So, what is the future of this blog that hasn't seen a new post in over a year?  This blog will continue to be my random collections of thoughts, but it will also be my random collection of photos as well.  I should mention that I just bought a Cannon Rebel T2i and it hasn't even come in the mail yet.  I am so excited about this new camera and I will post photos I've taken with it in the future.  I should also mention that I'm not promising to post, this blog will most likely see three or four posts a month, and sometimes less, so keep your hopes low.  Anyway, here's a picture of my new camera.....that I don't have yet.
