Camera Retirement

I've used a few different point and shoot models (my own and Rysio's) since I stopped using a 35mm in high school. They've almost always treated me well and I'm usually impressed with the results you can achieve on such inexpensive models.

I've been interested in shooting with a DSLR for a long time now and I was lucky enough to receive the Canon Rebel T2I as a graduation present a few weeks ago. So it is with sadness that I retire the sony point and shoot camera. I think we can all look forward to some higher quality photos in the near future. I thought it would be nice to share some of the photos I shot this month with Rysio's camera.




This month we went for a little walk around the Dundurn Castle grounds. The sun was setting and spring was just beginning to rear its lovely head. I also got to spend some time watching the Around the Bay road race, as it passed right by my house. It was a great afternoon, quite warm and there were many spectators along the route because I live near the finish line. It was fun to eavesdrop on what racers were talking about. My favourite was when a woman said to her running partner "I don't need to finish first." It's true, it's about getting out there, finishing the race and having fun. 

This month has been all about green. Rysio and I made a visit to Harper's garden centre to pick up seeds and seed starting soil. We ended up buying more than we usually do but it was well worth it, considering we'll have fresh veggies and colourful flowers all summer long. Standing in the nursery always makes me feel cheerful, seeing all of the potential lined up and organized like that. I wish my little growing table was so neat and tidy!

The colourful photos above are a mural on the side of a church in my neighbourhood. I have dubbed the alley on the left "The Alice in Wonderland alley" because you feel like you've eaten some strange potion as you walk towards the end until it becomes so narrow that you can't exit to the street. The photo on the right is a funny sign between our house and the Asian market that we sometimes shop at. I always want to take a picture of it, I guess I think it is a bit strange. Are people playing billiards so much that they're going back day after day? It would seem so. 

That's the last of the Sony photos for now. On to bigger and better things, I have a lot of learning and experimenting to do!
