Weekend in Photos no. 01







Last week I got a pretty sweet little camera, an Olympus OM-D E-M10, a mirror-less camera that’s smaller than a DSLR but still allows you to change the lenses. It’s perfect for a beginner like me who gets very overwhelmed with all the knowledge that a DSLR entails – especially since I don’t really have the time to learn!

This past weekend I finally got a chance to play with it a little bit. Sunday morning we marvelled at the fog that shrouded the ocean and our little town. I dropped my big girl off at ski club, then hit up a kid’s birthday party with my little guy, who had a great time. I stopped to take a picture of a small waterfall in town, and the sunset, although overcast, begged to be photographed.

The weekend flew by in a flurry of activity. It seems that as time goes on this year, we are getting busier and busier – with work and activities for the kids, life is non-stop! And I kind of like it that way! How was your weekend?

    Beautiful photographs! I’m also just getting into photography and I love it. You were very smart to get a mirror less. My dslr is ver heavy to lug around!

      It’s funny, but I went into the store looking for a DSLR and walked out with something completely different!

    Great photos! It’s so hard learning a new camera, but you seem to have it down!

      Thanks! I find it so difficult in manual mode, but I guess it’s a learning process!

      I’ve always LIKED photography, but don’t quite have the talent that some others do, and I don’t think I have the time to make it a full-time hobby 🙂 But thanks for the compliments!

    Oh it’s been so foggy here too on the Island. It’s lovely when it lifts and so warm out too! Your photos are beautiful and happy new camera to you!

      Thank you! I’m so excited to finally be using a real camera and not just my iPhone!

    love fog and mountain shots – I have a relatively new camera but every time I go outside at the moment I run, well walk, back in as it is so cold

    we got a small DSLR not long ago and I cannot for the life of me take good photos with my lack of knowledge. I should have ‘dumbed’ it down a little.
