Seasons change

It's a subtle shift, but I can feel the deep, dark depression slowly drifting away like the morning low clouds and fog in San Diego. The sun warms my skin and a smile sneaks up on me.

Hello, life, it's so good to see you again.

Thursday is the last session of my digital photography class and I'm really excited. Not excited because it's ending, necessarily, but deeply excited about all of the creative possibilities sitting in front of me. I picked up a new lens, the "nifty fifty" (EF 50mm f/1.8 II), which is so much lighter than the lens that came with my camera, an EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS standard zoom that it will make running around with my camera a whole lot easier. Also, at about 1/3 the price of the EF-S lens, I'm hoping that the 50mm takes away some of my nervousness when shooting. If I can get in the habit of shooting for half an hour every morning, that will make learning my camera a real snap.
