Off to Africa!

Well, folks, the time has come. I'm leaving for my long-awaited Africa trip. So it might be awhile until you hear from me again (okay, like two weeks) but then I'll be back with plenty of awesome pictures. Hopefully. (I hear they malaria over there.)

Until then, here's a couple of other shots....

Lawn mower racing?? Has anyone ever seen this before?? These guys at the Shenandoah Valley Hot Air Balloon and Wine Festival were pretty serious about it.

Wait, what? Why are you going to Africa?

Emily said...

I'm documenting a missions trip going to South Africa and Botswana.... it's through my parent's church in TN so my mom's going too. :-)

You have a heart of gold Emily. You really do.

Emily, I saw your comment on Jack's blog to his mom Tammy. I didn't know that you knew her. His blog led me to your blog. Wow your pictures are wonderful. I have been trying to capture the autumn color here in Vancouver, BC Canada. I wish I had your talent because I would have some beautiful ones. Hope you have fun in Africa and can't wait to see the pictures.

Hey, thanks Jennifer!! It's always a pleasure hearing from people I've photographed in the past. :-) Canada, really? That's great - I'm sure you'll get some beautiful shots.

You're fortunate to be able to capture the spirit of what you photograph. Africa's heart and soul will come back with you and I cannot wait to see and hear about your adventure.

At the moment I think Canon D350 is still out of my reach, so was thinking of either a Cannon Pro 1, or a Panasonic Lumix FZ30. What do you reckon?
