Everglades Explorations and a New Venture

Hello, all!

If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you most certainly know that Disney isn’t my only interest. Ever since my childhood, National Parks played a formative role in pushing me into a career in history and education and also served as wonderful destinations on many family vacations. When visiting these often grand and sweeping places, my desire to capture them in my memory and on film has always been pretty strong.

To do so, I had been using the tools that I could come by easiest. When I was a kid, it was a instant camera or a cheap Point and Shoot. As of late, I’ve been using an iPhone to capture images of the places I’ve visited. But as of last week, it looks like I’ll have  the chance to capture photos with a a bit more finesse: I bought a camera! My good friend AtDisneyAgain recommended a Canon SX60 HS (what do those numbers even mean??) and it arrived on my doorstep on Friday evening.  Come Saturday morning, I was already in Everglades National Park, trying my hand at taking pictures.

My goal? Take visually pleasing pictures of the places and things that matter to me in the style that I’ve always wanted to. I’m not overtly concerned with the techy part of photography, but more about the introspection and ability to capture an image how my mind sees it. Perhaps that will change over time as I learn more and can use my camera in more advanced ways. Perhaps it won’t. We shall see… and I’m very eager to take my camera with me and see more.

Enjoy:

  1. Just discovered your blog. I’ve caught the national parks bug and have started my pursuit to visit as many as I can (plus all the monuments as well). Have you visited the parks in Arizona? We have some good ones.

    1. Goodness, am I late in responding to this! I’m so sorry. Yes, I’ve been to Arizona! I went when I was about 10 and got to see The Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest and Walnut Canyon. One of the most amazing experiences of my young life and it definitely pushed me to see more of the NPS and travel as much as possible. Where have you been? 🙂
