Six years ago I reluctantly put aside my film SLR for a simple digital camera. Last week I took the plunge and purchased a digital SLR (Nikon D3000 with two lenses). This weekend I took it for a little test drive. Not my best photography, but I had a ball trying it out.
My weekend in pictures...and a few words.
surprised a pair of eagles. captured a father/daughter moment. reminded that the fences of the west are not the fences of the east. stopped in our tracks by deer. celebrated cinqo de mayo with a pinata hung from tow truck. spied on a rabbit hiding under a pinon tree. discovered a giant rock that looks like an owl. experienced snow, high desert and a lifetime of history in an afternoon drive. witnessed our baby eating cake for the first time.
I'm a Maine-r. Or, at least I like to think I am. True locals will argue differently simply because I wasn't born in Maine -- I'm "from away" they say. Whatever. It is crystal clear to me that I was born to live in Maine. Here's the catch. I fell in love with someone who really is "from away". So, I spend big chunks of time in a place very far from where I call home. But, I'm trying to bloom where planted, as they say. I'm trying to foster a simple (or at least a little simpler than some), reasonably wholesome and creative life for my family whether we're here or there. And, well, since you stopped here at my blog, you get to explore this craziness with me.
