My girl friend, Dahlia, and I went into Honolulu to buy the camera on Tuesday. I ended up buying the Canon Rebel t3 which I think is the newest model from Canon. I honestly don't know much about the specs, but it was the right price range and I LOVE this camera so far! I'm excited to learn more and I've already tried venturing out of the auto setting. Scary!
We went downtown after the big purchase and discovered a fun local market. I was super excited to try out the camera on all the fun textures and strange delights. Have you ever eaten tiny "Crispy Crabs"? Weird.
Next was lunch at Kaka'ako Kitchen. I was so occupied with taking pictures of everything around me that I could barely eat my favorite-- spinach and calamari salad with a chili vinaigrette.
We meandered down to Ala Moana Park. Sailboats, palms, and white sand beaches.
I think my favorite stop was Down to Earth, the natural grocery store in our neighborhood. Lots of fun, colorful goodies to capture. And people staring at me strangely as I crouched down to take pictures of garlic and broccoli.
Lastly, a little fun in the bathroom mirror!
If you've bought a painting from me in the last 6 months, a humongous mahalo to you for being a part of this camera purchase. I have so many more ideas for blog posts now that I can communicate so much more through my camera!
So, any fun plans for the weekend? I don't think I really have any plans, which I'm just fine with. A weekend filled with nothing sounds fabulous. Happy Friday!
