Lilah got her first school homework assignment from her teacher on Friday, and that assignment was to collect a big bag of colourful Fall leaves to bring into school! So today, after Lilah's nap, we grabbed her last-years-halloween-candy-bucket and went searching for colourful leaves. Thankfully it wasn't too difficult a task, however with Lilah checking every one of them with a microscope to make sure it passed the "It's SO Beautiful" test, it took a bit longer than it probably should have! Not to worry though, I kinda needed Lilah to take it slow today as I had a bit of homework to do myself! I bought a new camera (and lens) yesterday, it's the Canon 5D Mark ll along with an 85mm F1.8 lens. It's certainly a huge learning curve and I need lots of practice, but so far I'm loving the camera. Hopefully during this beautiful Fall weather I'll get a bit more practice fitted in - it's definitely my favourite time of the year for taking pictures! One of the things I'm noticing already is that I don't seem to need to edit my photos as much, or at all really, with this camera. It's making my job a whole lot easier!
