Life is Good, but Better with Pictures

What's not to like? I have my health, my sons, and my girls. When one of them has a face like that, what's not to love? I got a new camera today and took some pictures of my girls out on the deck, in the yard, and in their pool. Actually, only Kobe likes the pool. Jordan doesn't know what she thinks of it yet.

I've started getting into taking pictures. I am starting to look at the picture subjects with an artist's flair insted of just hoping to get good pictures. Luckily for me, this is the digital age because there is a whole lotta deleting going on in my camera. HA! The camera I just bought isn't expensive, just a basic 10 megapixel camera with a 10x digital zoom. Ergo, the picture of Kobe above. I didn't use the zoom, obviously, as she was just below me, but I do think the camera took a better quality picture. I'm taking it with me to my niece's graduation this weekend to see if I can capture some candid and memorable pictures of the family to document our time together.

I joined Facebook in November 2009 and have "friended" many old high school classmates and family. It has inspired me to upload as many family pictures that I can in various photo albums to share with my friends and family. Although I think Facebook's privacy provisions and practices suck in general, the premise of the social network is a good one. I like trying out my new photos on my friends and family. I have gotten a few comments already on Kobe's pool picture. I liked the tulip picture below and I took that with my girlfriend's Blackberry. It turned out perfect.

So, stay tuned for new and exciting pictures. When I get something I really like, I'll be sharing it.
