It was a long weekend this week, Friday 15th was the Independence Day of India and then today, Monday 18th is the local holiday of Parsi New Year. Unfortunately, I could not go anywhere. I had to study Spanish on Friday and Saturday since I had some tests on Sunday.
I have been taking Spanish class for the last 9 months, every single weekend. If you have read my about page you might know me by now.. I like to learn new things. This is good, if only I could learn to focus on one thing at a time. I have too many activities, can’t help it. I get easily excited on new things. (well, I am thinking about taking a break from this class though..I really miss my sleep-ins on weekends).
I did, however, finally get the chance to take some shots with my not-so-new-anymore DSLR Canon 600 D (bought it many months ago..) on Friday afternoon, in the park close to where I live. I learned some tricks of making beautiful photos from Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks and from Digital Photography School a few weeks ago and I am happy I got to try them out myself. I have been wanting to make this type of photo – a blurred background with a focused object in the foreground.
Might try to take some more shots today.
In the meantime, please take it easy on your Monday. I’ll leave you now with a song “Walking on the Sun” by Smash Mouth
Have a great day!
