351

351. The number of photos taken yesterday. A fine, fine day.

I'm falling in love with photography, and last night was the first time I have mentioned outloud possibly upgrading my camera since I upgraded last, exactly one year ago. Hmmm. Dangerous. It won't be happening for a while, that's for sure. For now, my lil Canon Powershot S2IS is suiting me just fine with its 12x zoom and beautiful shots (as long as there's enough light). But I can only imagine what the results might be with a finer machine. Imagination is good, right? :)

We headed down to Jericho Beach and the surrounding fields to play softball and hang out.

First, some of us went for a stroll on the beach:

A container ship (yes, this is the reason, amongst others, why the waters are BROWN) in the waters just off the beach, with the North Shore in the distance:

We headed back to our spot at the baseball field.
I didn't get a shot of the fish & chips from the beach concession. Damn they were good. I haven't eaten fish & chips in a LONG time. Yum.

After shooting like crazy yesterday and having some cooperative (and some not so) subjects, I thought it would be really great to take photos of families for a living. But of course, I would need to upgrade for THAT to happen ;)

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend.
