I realized I need a lot of practice (and a bit of new equipment - more to come on that front). which means the camera is still sitting out on the counter. and I'm going to make a focused (sorry, I couldn't resist!) effort to use it! So for the next bit of time, I'm going to devote my Friday posts to sharing the best image(s) I have from the week.
Tuesday afternoon, I took Charlie to the park near his house. and I brought my camera along. two firsts in one afternoon! I took about 75 photos - 25+ with my phone and the rest with the camera. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the one phone photo I saved.

The movement shots are really tricky. I used the "sports" mode for this one.
Charlie loves to find sticks. He asked if he could bring them home with him and I'm glad he forgot about that by the time we left. This is the farthest away shot I have.
Clearly, I'm a lot more comfortable up close.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased. These images are all straight off the camera. I guess it's a testament to the power of natural sunshine that the colors look true (at least on my laptop screen). ...and to dumb luck that they're pretty straight and don't look like they need much cropping.
If you've read this far thank you! I'd welcome any and all feedback, criticism and suggestions.
