Wild Animal Park - 27-SEP-2008 (16)
We're havin' a heat wave, a tropical heat wave...

It's late September, it's in the low nineties, and the humidity isn't far behind. Drove, rather than rode, as we had the new camera [new baby syndrome].

Edited, and edited again, because 3.5 photos a second can make for a lot of good pictures, but one can get into the opening of the Spanish Inquisition sketch with a lot of good photos. "Here's Uncle Jerry behind the house, Here he is at the side of the house", etc.

I've also taken out most of the experiments with ISO settings, shutter speeds, etc., although they're interesting [to me, and maybe Linda]. I will say that going SLR from a "point-and-shoot" is like going from a bicycle to a 747, in two ways. One, it's a lot faster [one picture every three seconds, versus 3.5 pictures (with auto-focus) a second]; and Two, there are seven HUNDRED settings on this camera. I wanted more speed and control, but I'm a touch overwhelmed.

Deep breath, there's only one knob [viewfinder diopter] that I can't undo, it's digital, for goodness sake, I'm not paying for film developing.

Commentary over [if you've even read this far]. Here now, the photos...
