Jude and I have been taking some time to get to know one another this weekend. The "For Dummies" book for my camera was definitely a wise decision, as it provides some good insight to the manual settings on the camera that would have taken me ages of playing around with to figure out, perhaps never figuring them out at all. I'm hardly an expert, and there's still a lot to learn, but I've definitely had a good time so far this weekend, and am looking forward to another glorious day of it.
For my first photo expedition of the weekend, I kidnapped John after he got off of work on Saturday night and stole away to the monuments. The monuments at night are an incredibly fun, incredibly beautiful DC thing to do. They are a little quieter than during the day, though not completely silent certainly. The lighting is incredible. Finally, it gave me a chance to play with shutter speed and my flash, resulting in some interesting images.
