My new hobby: Photography

In case the title didn’t tip you off, I’m trying to get into photography. I’ve always been interested in taking pictures, but I just recently decided to get serious about learning how to go beyond just pointing and shooting. So, armed with my fancy Canon Rebel dSLR camera (it looks like this, if you care), I’ve begun my journey into the world of photography. And I thought, hey, wouldn’t it be great if I could share my pictures with all my adoring fans? And then I thought, hey, wouldn’t it be great if I had adoring fans?

But I digress. Anyway, I thought I’d post some of my pictures on here so you guys can critique them, give me some pointers, or, preferably, just tell me how awesome I am and then send me money. I’ve set up an account on Flickr, a website for sharing pictures. Here’s a link to my page… feel free to take a look, or add me as a friend and maybe we can share pictures and stuff.

I know, it’s been a while. I’ve been off traveling the world, having all sorts of adventures and the like. That’s why I haven’t posted in a while. Okay, that was a lie… for some reason I just haven’t been able to motivate myself to write lately. Writer’s block, I guess. I’m not sure what that’s about, but it’s all good, because I’m back now.

So anyway… what was I going to talk about? Oh yeah, Insanity. I’m halfway through with Week 3, and it’s going great. I know what you’re thinking — didn’t I finish Week 2 like a month ago? Well first of all, it was only a week and a half. Quit exaggerating. And yes, I did finish Week 2 a while back, but I missed more days than I was comfortable with on Week 3, so I decided to repeat it.
