Saturday fun day
We had so much fun yesterday. First we hit up the farmers market in Little Italy where we strolled among the vendors while I snapped pictures of things that interested me. I bought a great big pink rose barrette/pin which I immediately pinned to my sun hat, as well as a bright coral peony which was much smaller and which I intend to use in my hair or on jackets for work. When you work in a high tech company, you need to sport a splash of girly color every once in a while, you know?
After the farmers market, we strolled down the main street of Little Italy so that I could both get some extra steps in for the day and find interesting things and people and buildings to snap. We soon came to the Italian American Veterans Plaza where I snapped the photo above. I think this one is my favorite of the entire day just because of the deep, beautiful colors all melding together.
Directly across from the plaza was a camera store and I couldn't resist going inside. It was like a kid in a candy shop, people: I wanted everything. What I came away was a leash for my lens cover so that I don't have to keep stashing it in random places while I'm shooting, a second memory card for my camera because an upcoming outdoor photography class that I'm taking recommends two cards and two batteries, and a rubber case to hold multiple memory cards because my camera bag is starting to get a little chaotic.
We walked down the other side of the street and back to Minnie before calling it a day and heading home. I had 4500 steps on my pedometer, a bunch of mediocre photos and a couple that I really liked, and some new camera equipment to feed my growing addiction. I couldn't have asked for a better day.
