This is Why I Still Carry my Canon XTi

I'd love to retire it. I have the XSi and the T1i but they won't let me PHOTOGRAPH THE SUN! If the sun is in the frame at 10mm with the other camera I get a sky white out. All other settings on the cameras are the same. I've even tried reducing the exposure compensation. No go. But the XTi will let me get blue sky RIGHT TO THE CORONA! (Hee..ok..close enough.) Anyone? Anyone? That XTi is approaching almost half a million shots. It's not going to last forever. HELP!

It's pretty formulaic, actually.

10mm lens switched to manual focus after acquiring the autofocus to hold it + 6 second exposures + f/8 + burst mode + dry, comfortable place to stand (at my lowered living room window) + finger steady on the shutter = 5 of 272 shots.

It's collecting more the capturing.

Oh, THIS Lensbaby hat?

Why, yes, as a matter of fact, it IS the last LENSBABY baseball cap available. Ever. Why do they still show them for sale on their website? I dunno. Crazy.

It was a good day at the jkirlin mailbox today!

Custom made sailboat pillow by Cindi Merle Hillerman at cmhdesigns.
Lensbaby® Composer® from the good people at Lensbaby®.

The image of the sailboat pillow is the first photo I took with the Lensbaby Composer and the images of the Lensbaby Composer is the first photo I took with the sailboat pillow. I'll say anyting for the sake of parallel construction.

In a totally unrelated aside, I have a new favorite hat. :)

It's Like I Almost Get It Then It Slips Through My Fingers

I should have paid attention in elementary school art class.

Wait, did I even HAVE an elementary school art class?
