We spent our day downtown at one of the lakes - Lake Mirror. There's an annual car show that goes on there called the Lake Mirror Classic and Andrew's Technology Student Association does an fundraiser there every year, selling hot dogs, hamburgers, drinks and stuff. We had so much fun last year, and we really enjoyed our time there this year. The weather today was unbelievable! After record-setting heat for weeks on end (I think something like 7 record highs were broken out in the first two weeks of October!), we have near-record lows tonight and tomorrow. It was cloudy and cold, followed by sunny, breezy and just-warm-enough.
I wandered around the car show with my camera and my dad (and my mom too, but she had far less trivia to share) and had loads of fun taking loads of pictures. I haven't gone through all of them and I'll wait to post them until I can identify all the cars in the shots. That means Dad will have to help me out.
Here's part of one of my favorite vehicles as a preview:
My photography assignment this week is night photography and I'm not doing so well so far. My camera doesn't have as much manual control as a DSLR, so I borrowed Mindy's Big Girl Camera.
There's just a short window of time each night when you can capture what my professor is looking for and I'm starting to get nervous. Last night, I took my camera out and only came up with this one:
And tonight, I took out Mindy's and, um, learned a lot. Here's hoping the third time's the charm!
