Cold, wind, sand, bad batteries; sometimes things just don’t go well. Despite the non-spring weather, we decided to go to the beach (Durand Eastman) this week. I’m still not sure why that sounded like a good idea (it was around 40˚ with 20-30 mph winds), but we did it anyway. Anika was shooting with one of my DSLRs for the first time, and it turns out the back-up battery I put in it was bad, so she only got to shoot about 15 photographs. I got wrapped up in some ground-level photography and didn’t notice the sand-storm blowing into my new G12… not good.
All-in-all, it was far from our best outing, but we still managed to put together an edit. There’s always next time. (Anika chose the last three ‘items’ again this week – they’re the ones with the “*”)
