I have to tell you, I am still loving my new camera so very much! What a great Christmas present! I’ve had it on my blogging to-do list to do a camera review for you at some point, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet…hopefully soon. I also really haven’t had as much time to play with it as I would have liked. When I first got it at Christmas I played around with the settings a ton, but then school started and work started and life got hectic and I’ve basically used it as a point and shoot since then. Now that school is winding down I hope to have more time to play and practice.
This weekend I had a little time to do that. While Michael and my father-in-law grilled our supper Saturday night, I took advantage of the beautiful spring (almost summer, really) weather and took some pictures. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out!
note: all pictures are straight out of my camera – no editing has been done (I’m not quite ready to tackle the task of learning how to edit pictures yet!)
we look like stilt people!
Isn’t God’s creation amazing?
The reason we were in Springfield on Saturday (other than to eat big fat steaks at my in-laws) was to attend a Science Seminar given by Kyle Butt. We had heard him speak before when we were in middle or high school, but that’s been awhile so we were excited to hear him again. We didn’t get to hear the Friday night or Sunday sessions (although we’re getting recordings of them to listen to later) but what we got to hear Saturday was great! The sessions Saturday covered how the dinosaurs fit into creation and the Bible, as well as the case against evolution. I was shocked to hear of the many lies that are in our children’s science textbooks (that “support” evolution) that even scientists have admitted were fake but that continue to be published and taught to kids! He presented some very eye-opening material. Apologetics Press has some excellent resources (books, videos, audio – some of it free!) to help you to strengthen your own faith and to defend your faith to others. I highly suggest you check them out!
