Last Week in Photos

We started our week by cooking for the week. Mike made his delicious chili.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I am not a great photographer.  I have taken Craftsy classes, purchased professional lighting, really thought through the photos and snapped, snapped, snapped thousands of pictures.  A few are pretty good, most are not.

However, I totally enjoy taking photos!  They are visual reminders of things I have seen and done.  They also help me remember what posts I want to write.  With all the holiday sales, I purchased a good camera with a couple of nice lenses to use for the blog. Hopefully, they will help improve the quality of photos I use.

Mike is a great photographer and has several really nice cameras, but I don’t think he is willing to turn me loose with them; nor I am willing to take on the responsibility.  Leave it to me to drop a pricey lens!

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share my last week in photos.  These are straight from the old iPhone, so quality they are not.  However, they are quick and convenient to shoot!

I got a new couch! I have never had a sectional before, so not sure how I will like it.

We got out early Saturday morning and went hiking at Tyler State Park. It was a nice park with good hiking trails. The gift shop was amazing!

The new camera arrives on Monday.  Hopefully, you will be able to tell a difference in the quality of photos.  Have a good week!  Enjoy!
