It was a wonderful opportunity to get to try out the new SLR camera that Robert gifted me with several months ago toward the end of my knee surgery recovery. After so many months stuck in the house, it seemed like I would never get out and do things again. Robert, knowing that I wanted to get into photography (with a nice camera), thought it might just do the trick to motivate me to get moving. And so it did, though for months now I've been reading about how to operate the camera. It's all new to me.
To a really good photographer, these photos are probably just mediocre at best, but I was thrilled to see how they turned out.
