I had quite the weekend, first shooting a friend's daughter's birthday party, which was really fun (and I was extremely grateful for a mutual friend's loaner of their Nikon D50 with 50mm prime lens for the event)... I will post photos of that soon. Then the next day, I drove 1.75 hours south to the tulip fields in Washington with a friend of mine, and we shot the tulip fields for a good 3+ hours. I have never paid such a high price for my photography addiction before, though. My arthritis with all of my medication changes and issues lately has left me in less than ideal shape, and 3+ hours of walking through tulip fields shooting was so hard on me that I basically did not do a thing when I got home or for a full day... and a friend who saw the state I was in took my kids off my hands for 5 hours yesterday. I only edited photos for about 45 minutes total yesterday, too. But today I'm doing better and managed to pick out my favourites from the day. I was happy with some of the photos, and thought I'd share some with you. These were taken with my friend's Nikon as well as our own P&S, as the Nikon has sensor issues above f8 or so. CC always welcome.
