Hmmmm....Something new?

Well, I wish that I had some sort of photography to post but that just isn't possible at this time (refer to previous blog) I am praying every night for some sort of improvement in the weather but it still remains in the negatives. So in the meantime I have been plotting out my new room. Now that Carissa has flown the coop and is at LDSBC I get free reign over her room and....its time to paint!!!! I probably should have taken a before shot to show the yellow she used for her walls. So I wandered around Home Depot and finally found a color I fancied in the kiddie Disney Behr paint section. If you are so curious as to what will be developing here soon, you can find it as "Home Town Hero". Actually, here's an online swatch (lucky you)

But I plan to paint two walls, as well as the ceiling pure white, and the other two blue. I will post some pics as soon as I get it done.
In the meantime I am gearing up for my next photography class next week. THink COLOR! That is my favorite thing about photography....I mean, I really do love black and white, it has its own artistic movement to it, but I love colors in photos that just POP! So that will be definitely something to look forward to. I think this is the only time in my life that I will pay college tuition JUST for the sake of learning because I WANT to! haha. But I plan to buy a new lens here this semester because after smashing my old one last september, leaving me with just a wide angle lens, it has been a wee bit challenging. So now I have my sights set on a 70-200 mm zoom/telephoto lens. Its a little spendy (its probably going to take up 3/4 of my next paycheck, but it will be way worth the investment. If this is something that I want to get better at, then I need good equipment - not the nicest, but Good.

This lens is useful, particularly for wildlife photos. The VR is helpful, but it doesn't solve all the problems.
