Taking My New DSLR on a Desert Walk

For Christmas I got a new a Nikon D3200to upgrade from my blurry iPhone pics. So excited! I was at my parent’s home in Tucson — a backdrop of dusty green saguaros with effervescent spines, rusty red mountains, crisp blue skies, and brilliant navel-orange sunsets. It’s a naturally dramatic backdrop for photos, so I decided to give my new baby a test on a walk I took with my parents in the desert. We trekked through a wash (that’s Tucson-speak for a dry riverbed) to a nearby elementary school playground, where we fetched with their Golden Lab, Lilas. The pics are, well…getting there…but I thought my amateur test-run would be fun to share:

I’m just beginning to learn all the functions on my little camera but can’t wait to take lots more photos to come!
