Recent Pictures

Hi there! Well, it's Monday and back to the grind. I have some random photography from lately, just bits and pieces into some of the things I've done or seen. 



A view from inside the Desert Dome at the Henry Doorly Zoo.

Holiday week, I took my kids to the Henry Doorly Zoo. As it was cold, we mainly stuck to the indoor buildings, one of them being the Desert Dome. The structure is impressive.




The trees in my neighborhood look very dark and grim.

I shot this one with my Samsung phone. 




The morning sky recently. It looked so serene and beautiful.

Right before the holidays, I dropped my daughter off to school one morning and was greeted with this sky.


Now, here's where things get cool--for me at least! Remember how I talked about getting a new camera? Well, I got my camera! Nature Girl and I got out this weekend, braving the cold, to test it out, and, man, does it take great photographs.




The only thing that remains of this famous Omaha restaurant is it's sign.



A view of State Street coming off 72nd Street, Omaha, NE.



A view of the Missouri River from NP Dodge Park. The floating circles of ice/snow look like frozen lily pads.



The Moon during mid-afternoon.

The moon was perfectly visible when we were out and about, so I figured it would be a great way to test my new camera. I have to say, it's pretty exciting to see such a good quality photograph!




A large leaf rests gently on top of a light snow layer.

I cannot wait to take lots of photographs with my new Nikon Coolpix L340. In case you're wondering (haha), that's the exact camera I picked out. I also purchased an accessory kit to go with it, so I have a cheap tripod to practice my amateur photography with.

I hope your day is grand!
